I have been taking magnesium glycinate to aid calcium absorption since my osteo diagnosis. I am having some gi problems with it...horrible flatulence and diarrhea. If I plan to go on overnight visits with family or travel I must stop taking the magnesium or people seriously cannot stand being around me. It's pretty awful. Husband suggested maybe bathing in epsom salts and I am wondering if that would help rather than taking the magnesium orally? I do know of one lady whose dr has her do magnesium injections...wondering if this is common. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks, all!
