I cannot stress how important this mineral has become in the fight against my pelvic pain!
Since I started supplementing with magnesium glycinate my pelvic pain has significantly reduced! My main symptoms were pain and aching in my perineum, genitals and sometimes down my legs. Burning, frequent and urgent urination and last but not least painful orgasm after which the other symptoms would get worse.
They are pretty much all gone!
My pelvic pain was predominantly pelvic floor dysfunction. Magnesium is essential in our bodies for muscle relaxation and nerve function!
Quick start guide:
* Magnesium glycinate is the best type
* Start at 3 x 100mg daily, increasing by 100mg each week up to around 600-900mg. Doesn't matter about body weight.
The link below is an excellent resource on all things magnesium and how it has many many benefits for your mind and body and not just for CPPS. I urge every person in this group to read the linked site, particularly all the pages under the Research tab.
Here are some more blogs/stories about magnesium which led me to trying it.
If magnesium has helped your symptoms then please post about it to encourage others and share the type/brand you are using. If it hasn't worked for you then please also post so we can try and work out why and help you.
