Out of all the medications that have been thrown at me for fibro relief...magnesium gave me the greatest longterm relief, immediately:)

Somadoll I see my primary Dr in the morning I'm going to ask about taking Magnesium for my Fibro . I'm not being treated for it at all. How much did you start off taking?

I started off taking 500mg a day and then increased it to 1000 and now I'm working on 1500. Start slow because too much will give you diarrhea. I also take HTP, vitamin D and melatonin. You may need and few months of medications though if your fibro is flaring and untreated. Good luck and your appointment:)

If one type if magnesium causes problems for you, try another. I couldn't handle 500 mag citrate but I take mag oxide 1500 with no problem.

Magnesium malate is very gentle.

I have taken it for years and it doesn't help my fibro only thing it helped me with is staying more regular.

Magnesium isn't helping me either, i also take vit b and d. I think my fibro flares are caused by my arthritis so two lots of pain for the price of one. Haha the bogof offer. I wish it would bog off.

I take magnesium as well. I also take B Complex, Vitamin D with Calcium, turmeric, removed gluten from my diet (most of it anyway), eat fresh, organic herbs like Basil, Sage and Ginger. Dark leafy greens are also good. All of these help with inflammation. I've been looking for a naturopath to help me out, but have not found one in my plan. I may not find one, but even if there isn't one in my plan, I'm going to see one. I went to pain management on Monday and my doctor of 20 years is no longer going to be in practice. I'm devastated, he's been awesome and done a lot for me. He is bringing in another doctor and it will be alright... I have enough faith in him to know he would not leave his patients with someone he didn't trust.
