I am a migraine sufferer and my doctor told me to take the following to help. I am asking this question because now that I am using sparkpeople to eat and live better, I am wondering if i really need all the extra supplements or not. I would love opinions on vitamins and any info anyone has on migraines. One of the reasons I started sparkpeople was to live healthier and I thought maybe that would help with the migraines. I didn't know if it was a food issue...? I like using sparkpeople to stay healthy and to help me tone up but please note that I am not overweight. I am 26 and 120 pounds. Can anyone please give me insight into these migraines. I have been taking the following for almost a year very regularly but quite truthfully I can't seem to tell if it really helps or not. When my body decides to have a migraine there is just nothing I can do to stop it.
Here is what I am currently taking daily
Vitamin A 10,000 IU
Vitamin D3 2000 IU (actually more than doc recommended but i thought may
be it wasnt enough since i was still having the migraines)
Vitamin E 400 IU
400 mg magnesium twice a day
My doc said the 10,000 IU of vitamin A but last time I went to the store I could only find it in bottles of 8000 so that is what ive been using lately.
I would really love any insights or opinions about any of this. I'm not going to do anything stupid and totally ditch my dr advice but the migraines haven't gotten better and I am just wondering if the supplements are all that necessary anyway.
Is anyone here also a migraine sufferer or use extra supplements for any reason? Should I be using more or less of the ones I listed????
Thanks for any advice or help!
