Migraine Headaches-Hell on earth
I posted the following on the magnesium thread, but know there are lots of fellow sufferers out there. The low carb primal diet has made a big difference in overall health including the migrianes, but magnesium made such a great difference. In the last year I have only had to resort to my heavy duty prescription maybe three tmes, when that used to be the monthly average.
Now I take a triple magnesium from Swanson Vitamins that is a 400mg combo of oxide-citrate-aspartate which works wonderfully for my migraines. Also take calcium since they work together. I was astounded after nearly forty years of severe migraines (always carrying two different presciptions with me, +calmag now) that no doctor ever mentioned it, and I guess I was just not attending to the internet info, but for about a year now when I feel the first signs of a headache I take one of these and the magnesium nearly always stops it. This was like a miracle to me. I lived in dread of a full blown three day migraine. I think back to all that lost time lying in a quiet dark room in such pain that I would have taken a needle full of anything to get rid of, and a simple dose of magnesium would have made such a difference.
