Muscle Twitches = magnesium deficiency
> I am just wondering if anyone has experienced muscle twitching when your Crohns is flaring? I'll skip the footnotes. Magnesium deficiency should be at the top of your suspect list.

It's vital for carnitine uptake (which is antiinflammatory in the gut) and butyrate metabolism (crucial for HDAC inhibition).
