Having a rough day here, too! Middle back is tight, my head is aching, and my left arm feels like I pulled a muscle from increasing my weights for PT on Tuesday. On the upside, I found magnesium maleate at the vitamin shoppe yesterday; looking forward to possible positive impact on muscle pain. For those who take it-how many milligrams do you take each day?

I spray it on my skin and do foot soaks.
