My son has been FGA free for 4 months now. He has recovered wonderfully with the exception of the few exposures (we know what they are). Last time he was lethargic, moody, hyper sensitive and spacey.
At the end of the 3 days it seem to take him to clear it from his body he came down with leg pains. He has had these over the last several years and we've done some blood studies for inflammation, all negative. So I am sure they are related to the FGA reaction he has. Anyone have advice for this?
The pain is in the whole shaft of his long bone of one leg (usually not the same place each time). He says it has a 'cold' sensation. Standing is uncomfortable, but ibuprofen calms it down. I'm trying to use Ibuprofen sparingly now and keep it handy when we really need it!
none of his doctors have any answers and no concerns (his blood calcium has been low).

I just thought of something...does supplement Magnesium help? Does he get enough potassium?
It could be that during the reaction to FGA he uses up all his minerals trying to balance it out and they are "stolen" from other areas.

I get bone pain if im exposed slowly with the same thing over a few days. Not enough to provoke an out and out migraine but a slow build up of fga leaves me with my bones hurting on the inside. Difficult to explain quite how it feels. I think when i get the magnesium for my little one i will have to try it myself.

Get that too, ali. I actually had more reactions than I reported in my book.

I routinely use magnesium and potassium to ease leg pain (feel like bone, not muscle). Usually relieves pain in 12 hours or less.
@ 100 mg potassium, 400 mg magnesium
I am a large male, for a child I would start at 1/4 dose or less.

A good product I use is Tri-Salts by Ecological Formulas. It's a powder...carbonate salts of magnesium, potassium, and calcium. It was recommended years ago by Dr. Blaylock and can be ordered online.

Deb, How do you take it? Mix it with something?

I just add it to a little water, stir and drink...quickly, since it's a bit chalky. I have added vitamin C crystals and that makes it easier to take. Plus, it's a good combination along with vitamin D tablets.

I do the same as Deb A. I add it to a little water, stir and drink quickly- followed by a glass of water to wash down the chalky taste. I've never had a reaction to it and it's been a great calcium supplement (we are 99% dairy free).

my son is today suffering from an exposure. usually the pain appears on the 3 to the 5th day after.
when do you think is the best time to start dosing him? Today or wait a few days?
side effects to high Mg dosing? I can get just Mg, and don't currently have any Ca+ for him.- Suggestions?
I also have a Vit A+D for him he takes.
bananas and broccoli enough?
I'm visiting a foreign country not at home where I can stock up, I'd have to shelp it all back with me.

Get as many good minerals and antioxidants in your child whenever he is having a reaction.
