Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I became a vegan almost a year ago. While I have lightly been working out for several years I now work out harder than I ever have. I am having some muscle cramping issues, and hip pain and someone told me to take magnesium. When I do it gives me a romping headache and makes me a little dizzy the next day. I have tried several multi vitamins and they make me sick to my stomach.
As fellow vegans who work out hard what vitamins do you suggest? I eat healthy. I drink a green juice everyday for breakfast (spinach, carrots, celery, cilantro, green apples, habaneros, and a lime) and I make my own beans and rice, for my daily protein then I eat a variety of vegetables in a little coconut oil and as a snack a frozen treat (coconut milk, and frozen fruit). So I make all of my own food and I don't eat packaged or processed food and all of the sudden I am having severe hip pain with cramping down the side of my leg.
I don't want to go the doctor (though I may have to) because I live in a small cattle town with no vegan doctors close by so I thought I would put it out there and see what you all thought.
