My magnesium levels fell again, today. I went in for my weekly infusion of IVIG in addition to my daily IV anti-fungal and was pleasantly surprised when I was told that I wouldn't be getting magnesium. That held true for all of an hour when my lab results came back and I was woefully short of normal. What would have been a three hour day turned into a six hour day. We had to wait for the pharmacy to make the IV up, then we had to wait while it infused.
I know I can take more oral magnesium. I know I'm capable of swallowing the pills, but do you know what 10,000mg of magnesium does to your digestive system? I'm going to sit tight and plow ahead and hope that my system just hasn't managed to accrue the magnesium. If I'm still deficient when I go back on Monday, I'll woman up and take more magnesium. Until then, the three year old in me is sticking her tongue out and sulking in the corner.
