So Family Circle (get that magazine free) has this article about migraines. ANY article about ridding yourself of migraines I dog ear and read as soon as I can. Any treatment within reason I try because I suffer from really bad ones. Since taking Topamax? Mmm not so bad, but I have done years of diary work and self-monitoring weather, diet, diet eliminations, allergens et cetera, ad nauseum- literally. I also have taken every single migraine remedy known to woman. One of my biggest problems is hormonal fluctuations. Fiorcet nearly killed me (medicine especially taken during onset of periods) and that was the end of that. So imagine my delight to read in Family Circle that Magnesium in the amount of 650 mg a day on the 15th day of your cycle is having remarkable effects for hormonal onset migraines. I got some the next day. 250 mg x 3 tablets....is 750 'cause I can't multiply right, but I can't cut one pill and is that going to work...lah lah lah.....so I get 100 mg. more big deal right? Okay - and I checked with my pharmacist and she said it 'could help' that Magnesium is a mineral that has properties that are known to RELAX your muscles and nerves. OH joy - RELAX....BONUS...SCHWING!!!!!!! So I bought them. I also know that if you take certain medicines - you can NOT take Magnesium so if you intend on taking this - check with your pharmacist 1st. Anyway - (slap my head) I'm not in pain - THIS IS WONDERFUL.....it's not completely gone.....but manageable. HOW WONDERFUL.....HOW GREAT THIS IS........OMG this is.......WOW.......this is.....WT? HEY.......WHAT.......IS............RUN STAR........RUN............ So I'm sitting in the bathroom and it occurs to me that Magnesium MAY just be the source of MAGNESIA as in MILK OF. You know.......PHILLIPS MILK OF MAGNESIA.....OH WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MYSELF? Relaxed myself alright. PFT..... Oh only you Star.....again. It's true - you only exchange one problem.......for another. And my luck Imodium will give me ........a migraine. Somedays I swear I keep looking for the warning tag on my life......but alas. It went the way of the illegally removed mattress tag.
