I am 78 years old & have numb feet at bedtime. Will magnesium help?

Dear Pat,

This Orthopedic Chicago Podiatrist located in West Loop 60661,Roscoe Village 60618, Elmhurst 60126 & Bartlett 60103 says…

A treatment for numb feet (as described) may be magnesium, among others.
For magnesium, the RDI (recommended daily intake) for adult males is 420 mg a day, but the actual dietary intake may be only @ 320 mg a day, a dietary shortfall of  @ 100 mg a day. Check the magnesium content of what you eat on the internet.

Many natural beverages contain about 100 mg of magnesium per liter, including orange juice, grape juice, milk, some mineral spring waters, many wines, and some beers. Inexpensive magnesium additives with no impacts on flavor include magnesium bicarbonate, magnesium gluconate, and magnesium lactate.
There are blood tests for magnesium. Get a magnesium supplement from your local healths tore with the above guidelines in mind.

There are other natural & prescription medications & physical therapy which we offer & may help.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck!
