WARNING: In any diseases establishing a correct diagnosis is the key to an effective treatment. You're the most important person in this process in that you can accurately describe the character, location, duration and time of onset of your symptoms. Also, you should tell your doctor about the vitamins, herbs and medications that you take. This is very important because long-term administration of vitamins may be due to abnormal laboratory tests, supplements and antacids containing magnesium can cause diarrhea; some antihypertensive drugs can cause constipation.
