Mag Sulfate makes you feel as though you are swimming in lakes of fire, although it's supposedly to stop you from having a seizure. Supposedly. You would not forget Mag Sulfate. They pack ice around your neck because the heat is so horrible in your veins, and the baby comes out all floppy. I'd already had one seizure, and if they were letting you walk around, I think you probably did not?
I agree with magnesium supplementation. Things that have magnesium:
*chocolate banana crepes
*calcium-magnesium supplements they sell at any pharmacy
