Question: Why does hypomagnesemia cause tetany? I understand how magnesium deficiencies can occur, etc., but I'm looking for a resource about the physiological effects on the nervous system. Specifically, the actions that might occur around the chemical synapse to produce muscle spasms. I've found a lot of information about how calcium plays a role, but not much about magnesium. Does anyone have a good website I can go to? I know how to look on Wikipedia, and the information I need is not in their articles. I need a research reference or scientific paper/study report.
