Low magnesium can cause problems with the functioning of your skeletal muscles, including twitching, sore muscles, back and neck pain, and headaches. Additionally, patients who suffer from chronic joint pain conditions such as osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis often have abnormally low levels of magnesium, and may also be at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, according to the National Institutes of Health Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases National Resource Center.
Osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis are linked to a magnesium deficiency, either due to low dietary intake or malabsorption problems, says clinical nutritionist Krispin Sullivan on her website.
Regular readers of the Magnesium Guru will already know that the best way to get magnesium into your system is by spraying it or rubbing it into the skin or taking a bath with magnesium flakes dissolved in it.

So transdermal magnesium for joint pain might be the solution that has eluded you so far.
