Magnesium is a good thing to increase for leg pain.

But do you know that you are short of magnesium. If you are out of balance then adding something may take you further out.
If you have not downloaded cronometer then use it for a couple of days and check your magnesium intake.
And maybe you should take a B12 just in case. That will not upset any balance and the consequences of being low are far too serious to risk. I just take one on sundays.

A need for magnesium is sometimes indicated in leg pains, if it is not injury related.
Here is some info for farm sources vs pharm source
some legumes (beans & peas), nuts seeds, whole unrefined grain, bananas, wheat germ, and pudding. Eating a wide variety of legumes, nuts, whole grain and vegetable will help meet your daily dietary need for magnesium.
Foods high in magnesium are usually high in potassium and dietary fiber.
Dietary magnesium does not pose health risk, however pharmacologic doses of magnesium supplements can promote adverse effects such as diarrhea and abdominal cramping. Excessive magnesium is removed through our kidneys. In the case of kidney failure, poses the risk of magnesium toxicity.
Cacao is super rich in magnesium!
so simply adding more of these foods to your eating plan will increase your magnesium safely and see how it works, or not on your leg.

It could be sciatica perhaps.
