Risks of Epsom Salt Baths
Epsom salt baths are a home remedy believed to relieve tired muscles and reduce swelling. After my MG diagnosis, I continued with this healing method, assuming it would help alleviate my weak and sore muscles. However, I quickly stopped taking baths because I would have difficulty breathing and would rapidly become overheated.
Then I discovered that those with MG should avoid magnesium as it can promote a myasthenic crisis. Epsom salt is Magnesium sulfate.
Have you taken an Epsom salt bath with MG, and do you believe you experienced any flared symptoms due to it?
