My doctor treated my arrhythmia with magnesium glycinate. Thus I had been low in magnesium. With this supplement all of my arrhythmia goes away. I adjusted my dose until the symptoms went away, and it is a very small dose. I am not sure why doctors overlook magnesium, as it is very noninvasive and works.

I got dengue fever in Thailand in December 2010. It was the most ill I've ever felt in my life. I had constant headaches, and severe flu-like symptoms, but the worst thing was the excruciating pain in my legs, knees, and back. When I tried to stand up, it felt as if someone was stabbing a knife into my knees. I couldn't lie on my back as the pain along my lower spine was so intense. I didn't sleep or eat for nearly a week. I had no energy whatsoever. After about a week to 10 days, I started slowly feeling better, but the knee pain still lingered several weeks afterward.
