So, I was prescribed Magnesium Oxide. This medication is a mineral supplement used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Magnesium is very important for the normal functioning of cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and the heart. Usually, a well-balanced diet provides normal blood levels of magnesium. However, certain situations cause your body to lose magnesium faster than you can replace it from your diet (i.e. chemotherapy).
Tonight I'm tired/feeling weak and still a little nauseous even though I've taken all my nausea meds. That's surprising as I got both doses of steroids in today and that usually keeps me hyped up well into the wee hours of the morning! Not tonight. Dinner consisted of saltines and Gatorade. I'm sure I'm headed for an early bedtime, too.
