Abstract

Magnesium deficiency is more common than is believed. This article discusses florid magnesium deficiency in two patients and the results of treatment. While neither case was difficult to diagnose, the severity of symptoms was unusual. Magnesium deficiency should always be included in the differential diagnosis of patients who present with persistent or severe muscle pain.
