To All Migraine Sufferers!

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I had a migraine a few days ago. It was one of the worst I have ever had. If you suffer from them as well consider this easy remedy.

I went to a neurologist because they were getting so bad I convinced myself I had a brain tumor. Thankfully I don't! I was just severely magnesium deficient! Apparently due to our diets, most Americans are severely deificient when it comes to magnesium. I am now on 500 mg per day and I take it at night because not only does it help keep migraines away but it is an amazing sleeping pill! It helps regulate your sleep cycle so you actually get BETTER more restful sleep! It is wonderful! I feel better than I have in a VERY long time!

    I am SO game to try this. No problem with migraines (thankfully) but sleep problems run in the family.

    Thanks heaps for passing this info on. My husband suffers from migraines and this sounds well worth trying as he could well be magnesium deficient.

    Here's to no more migraines and a great sleep emoticon

    The magnesium I take is OTC. The doctor said 500mg a day is all I need and it would be cheaper to just go buy the vitamins at the drug store rather than getting a prescription. It is also super good for your heart health as well!!

    Lol at your comment.

    I suffer from migraines and I found out mine had to do with my neck/spine. I still get them from time to time and have a very close friend who suffers from them too - I am definitely going to spread the word on magnesium! And shoot if it helps with sleep too, I am ALL for it! Do you have to have a prescription for it or is that something I can buy OTC?

    Also, I feel your pain. It is tough for people with migraines to be functional sometimes and there are people out there who definitely don't "get it" because they have never had one. They are the worst. Hope they go away all together for you!
