I am a 43 year old woman with previous diagnosis of Basilar Migraine and Raynauds disease. AFter suffering a bad bout of chest infection and asthma I awoke with severe chest pain and a tachyarrhythmia. I had several recurrences of central or left chest pain, clamminess and nausea. By the time I got to emergency dept. all tests were normal and I was told I was having panic attacks. Knowing (as a doctor myself) something wasn't right I started to pinpoint my own symptoms. I started having basilar migraines and general vasospasm at similar times to the chest pain. I wondered if I was therefore having coronary vasospasm. I had tried to get an urgent cardiology referral but with my image as a hysterical 40 year old woman tainting my symptoms getting taken seriously, I took matters into my own hands. I started magnesium supplements - immediately my basilar migraine symptoms subsided - I also felt generally much more well. I had a nights sleep without being disturbed by tachycardia for the first time in 3 weeks. The next day I had angina type symptoms on climbing stairs (freezing weather outside). I felt unwell for about 20 minutes until this subsided. On returning home I again took magnesium and began to feel improvement in my wellbeing. I will continue to use the magnesium until I see a cardiologist

I was having severe palpations because my beta blocker (Atenolol) was reduced from 50mg to 25mg. Beta blocker was reduced because my pulse was low. Taking Magnesium 250mg daily stopped the palpations. The palpations were bad and they were driving me crazy, I am so glad I tried the magnesium!
