Migraines and Magnesium

Though it is not highlighted as much as Gastrodin, scroll towards the bottom of the article, the bit about a link between magnesium and migraines. Yet more proof and studies in the efficacy. I take Ultra-Mag and it does help me relax and sleep at night as well as keep my migraines at bay.

Has anyone else found some relief with magnesium for their migraines?

Gluten Free and Fibromyalgia

I AGREE! WIth this article, yes, I do not have Celiacs disease (allergy to gluten) but I know I DO have a SENSITIVITY to gluten! When I stay away from gluten, I feel better, less pain, less fatigue, more energy. I understand my tolerances, maybe something every couple of days, but even then yes, I do begin to feel the difference. And really, when i cut out breads, I don't miss them so much. And gluten free bread? Mighty tasty to me!  just wish I could bring it to the restaurants with me to substitute!

Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia

Most people, not just those with fibro, have low levels of vitamin D. I have always supplemented with vitamin D3, even though I live in sunny Florida. It was just recently that my doctor started checking my exact levels and he discovered that even with taking vitamins D3 supplements I was still on the absolute lower end of the spectrum! So he has up me to 5,000mcg a day. I do feel like I feel a bit better, less pain, more energy (a little.) I am curious now my next visit to see how much my levels have gone up. Real curious.
