The Pendulum Diet Is Easier To Perform

Patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FS), also called fibrositis syndrome, often

Suffer from myalgias, fatigue, sleep disturbance and anxiety [1-3]. The same

Symptoms are found in patients with low magnesium (Mg) levels [4]. In fact,

Abnormalities of muscle activity have been shown in Mg deficiency using

Myothermography [5]. Since treatment with Mg has been shown to be of benefit in

Patients with tiredness [6] and in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)

[7], measurements of Mg in FS patients might prove helpful in identifying those

FS patients most likely to benefit from Mg supplementation. In fact, recently

There was a preliminary report of low Mg in FS patients [8]. Both plasma and red

Blood cell (RBC) Mg levels of FS patients were measured to increase the

Sensitivity of the investigation. RBC Mg levels have been shown to be a better

Predictor of the body’s Mg status than plasma levels [9] and low RBC Mg levels

Have been shown to be present while plasma levels were normal [7]. FS is a

Chronic disorder whose symptoms may be exacerbated by latent Mg deficiency.

Recognition of such a problem in some FS patients would thus be the first step

In more successful treatment and the easing of the suffering of many thousands

Of patients.
