I have been diagnosed with migraine, myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia and also magnesium deficiency.
This was a long hard road and on August 18/19 of 1998 it was like the float gates opened and I was drowned in a sea of pain and dehabilitation. That was the day I had a migraine that lasted for 1 1/2 months SOLID. After that migraine broke, I was having migraines almost every single day.
Around this time I suddenly became diabetic and contracted a heart arrhythmia. Also very quickly, my cholesterol, triglycerides and lipids sky rocketed.
It took 9 months of me complaining about fatigue-no sheer exhaustion to the point I would go cross-eyed and have to sleep-almost as bad as narcolepsy. This entire time the doctors told me I was depressed, to which my reply was, "I have been depressed before and this is NOT depression. The next doctor to say this to me, I will reach down his throat and pull his heart out of his mouth!" Needless to say that was written in my charts but I do not care because it was 9 SOLID months of complaining to my family doctors and the hospital doctors.
When I finally went in and demanded to see the manager of my family dr. office, and demanded a Vitamin B shot just to see if it would work, the manager called a doctor to talk with us. He agreed to give me a shot on the condition I let him do a blood test which I said, "PLEASE DO!!!"
It was 10:30 pm that same night the nurse called me and said get MagOx 400 and take 1 a day. Then later the heart specialist said NO, take a minimum of 3 a day.
(I could have sued my family doctor then but I am not sue happy so I let it go but at the price I will live with these problems the rest of my life and their lives go on. But I do believe what goes around comes around :) )
But I have been getting desperate again this year feeling different things coming on and I think it's all stemming around digestive tract and magesium deficiency unlike what all these doctors seem to "think" they know. Not to mention I have been reading about meds that cannot work together which all the PDR's, Walgreen's Medicine Shoppes in the world have not even monitored.
I am going to up my Magnesium starting today and see what happens in the next days, weeks, months. Also I am wondering about taking DrNatura as a starting point for better digestive absorption.
I want to compare notes or get some good sound advice or will even answer questions from people who have not been through all this as long as I have been.
