When your muscles are tight, you are uptight. The more you burn through your magnesium, the more tight your muscles will be and the more uptight you will be. The best thing to do to relax yourself is to start increasing your magnesium levels and to decrease triggers and stressors. Think of it this way, every time you get stressed out, you burn through your magnesium -- quickly. When you burn through your magnesium other minerals take over like Iron and Calcium. These will wreak havoc on your physical and mental health.

“Calcium and magnesium have a special complementary partnership in the body. Specifically with muscles, calcium causes muscles to contract and magnesium causes them to relax. If there is too much calcium in your body or not enough magnesium to balance out the calcium your muscles cannot relax. They stay contracted or cramped.
Our ancestors Paleolithic diet included calcium and magnesium in a ratio of 1:1. Today's modern diet has a calcium to magnesium ratio of anywhere from 5:1 to 15:1! And that excess calcium binds up our precious magnesium and leaves our body even more shortchanged when it comes to magnesium. With no magnesium available, our muscles can't relax.
Magnesium deficiency causes muscle cramping in two additional ways: Without enough magnesium, our body cannot make enough energy to feed our muscles. And, contrary to what you might think, energy-depleted muscles contract, rather than relax. (Think of the rigor mortis of death).
Magnesium also balances out calcium to calm nerve cells and to stop them from firing off pain signals.” Source - www.jigsawhealth.com/blog/magneisum-back-pain-hbi/
“Our findings show that a 2-week intravenous magnesium infusion followed by 4 weeks of oral magnesium supplementation can reduce pain intensity and improve lumbar spine mobility during a 6-month period in patients with refractory chronic low back pain with a neuropathic component.”
