Just a quick note to say hi!
If a patient complains of chest pains or hand tingling and there is not indication of arterial blockage, suggest the patient try to reduce calcium and increase magnesium in their diet. Do not recommend they take all these anxiety drugs! Those drugs cannot help this condition. They can also keep magnesium tablets on hand for emergencies when they fail to balance their dietary calcium/magnesium ratio.
Women are more prone to a calcium to magnesium imbalance as their bodies tend to hoard calcium since women's bodies are designed to gestate babies. Nature expects females to deplete their calcium to grow an infant's skeleton. Our cave-girl ancestors would already have had an infant or two by the time she was in her 20's and her calcium store would have been depleted by her pregnancies. Women today have far fewer children and live longer, yet their calcium hoarding metabolism remains and a calcium imbalance to magnesium causes some women to have chest pains and can cause post-menopausal women to have heart attacks. Eat magnesium rich foods such as greens! Cut-down on calcium laden products! Cut down on coffee.
If a patient overdoses on dietary calcium and has chest pain-- take a magnesium tablet. Reduce calcium intake and eat magnesium rich greens everyday. Keep in mind some foods such as coffee, utilizes magnesium in order to metabolize it. So, cut down on magnesium depleting substance like coffee too. In our low vegetable modern diet magnesium can be depleted and the body experiences constriction of vessels, heart tissue and other cramps. Also our modern farming depletes the soil of magnesium since our modern fertilizers contain no magnesium. Patients do not need to take magnesium supplements everyday. It is much healthier to balance out intake with diet. Taking calcium supplements just hardens the arteries.
Excess calcium calcifies our arteries and if our system is overloaded from a calcium meal, you can have such severe cramping of vessels and heart tissue to cause a heart attack. If you had been over age 50 you might have had a heart attack in one of these episodes, while youth helps a patient survive a calcium overload. The reason why most doctors don't give this advice is their training is to provide diagnostics, surgery and patented drugs. Since magnesium is a natural substance it cannot be patented and thus it is not on the list of treatments.
For many decades magnesium used to be the first treatment given to patients admitted to the hospital for chest pains or heart attack. Now, hospitals give what are called "calcium channel blockers" so the drug companies can make a profit that they cannot with natural magnesium. Calcium channel blockers only alleviate symptoms for a few hours, but do not fix the underlying cause-- excessive calcium and too little magnesium.
1. The most likely cause of the patients complaining of unexplained chest pains is not anxiety, but magnesium depletion. When one feels chest pain one should take a tablet of magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are molecular antagonists, like a seesaw that needs to be balanced. The pain probably occurs after a high calcium meal. Also increase dietary magnesium by eating greens such as spinach and perhaps cut-down on overloading your system with calcium laden foods. People can have severe chest pains from a large bowl of hot chocolate or eating a carton of ice cream. Calcium constricts heart muscle and arterial walls, while magnesium relaxes them. We need both Magnesium and Calcium to survive.

Dr. I saw your comment to the AIVR person.
I have AIVR and no other symtoms as well. I recently had an infection (strepp I think and lower resp.) and this is the exact time my AIVR started. Could the infection have caused the AIVR and should I consider more antibiotics in case my heart is still fighting the infection (the infection was 4 months ago and I was on amoxicillin for 10 day).
I'm concerned about the frequency of my AIVR and have no other heart or health issues. My CC EP doc put me on Metoprolol but that increased the AIVR worse than before...
Any suggestions would help. thank you.
