Suggest Safe Dosage For Magnesium Supplements To Treat Thigh Muscle Cramps
300 mg per day.
Thanks for posting your query.
Muscle cramping and spasms are often found in vitamin D and magnesium deficiency.
I suggest you to consult an endocrinologist and get prescribed vitamin D and magnesium supplements. Your symptoms should improve with that. In addition to your dietary intake you can have daily supplements of 300 mg per day. Also eat magnesium rich foods like bananas, beans, chickpeas, fish, nuts, soybeans, spinach etc which are natural sources of magnesium.
Regarding vitamin D levels, you need to take a XXXXXXX of vitamin D with milk or curd once a week for 8 weeks and then once a month. Each XXXXXXX contains 60,000 IU of vitamin D. But these should be taken only after getting your vitamin D levels checked.
I hope this answers your query.

Endocrinologist is a better option.

Endocrinologist will help in ruling out osteoporosis also at your age. You can get the prescriptions from internet also.
