Also with respect to hair loss gluten intolerance is highly correlated. If you don't have a thyroid, low thyroid hormone is the culprit. I would sincerely recommend reading about natural thyroid hormone in Starr's book and at...

I tend to notice other low mag symptoms when I'm under stress, the twitching muscle thing is a late symptom for me so most of the time these days I can avoid it. yup, that's what comes to my mind.

I have orthostatic hypotension, my hair has all fallen out and my ankles are swollen. Does being hypo affect your cognitions? I feel so spacey and am doing things that don't make sense, ie putting stuff in the frig that belongs in the cabinet. Additionally, I've been having myoclonic tics.
