Lots of info to read! I confess I did not get through all the pages.
I have been having pains and problems which began the fall of 2010. By the beginning of 2011 primary doc finally sent me to neurologist (for constant headaches). He ordered an MRI (of my head and then my neck too). They found a spot on my cerebellum. Took him and his group a week to call the spot "probable" stroke. I personally disputed it but had no knowledge of what else it could have been.
In my research, I found out that other things can cause spots on the brain including migraines.
Since then I have had pains all over my body. Been to different docs and all they want to do is to categorize it as muscle pain/fibromyalgia. Sometimes I think there was a correlation between my pains and my monthly cycle???
I get pains are on both sides of my neck, up into my jaws by my ears and up into my head....anywhere from the base of my skull to the top of my head. I even have developed lumps on my scalp. I have ringing in my left ear from all this. The pains are also on my shoulders and basically all over my back. I can get pains in my legs, feet, shoulders and arms as well. Nothing is exempt.
These pains are not every day. Some days are better than others. But when the pains are there, I know I'm a bear to live with.
I have no time to be sick. Mommies can't be sick!
So, since all the docs want to say it is muscular pain, what do I have to lose than to try a mag supplement. Oh, yeah, I do have "constipation" so if the mag helps the works get moving on a more regular basis, bring it on!
With all that said I wanted to know if the mag supplement that a friend gave me meets the approval of you, the more seasoned magnesium takers.
The brand is Dynamite. Ingredients:
Magnesium: (As Amino Acid Chelate, Omnimins, Magnesium Glycinate, Magnesium Taurinate) 110 mg
P.M.S. Proprietary Blend: (Omnimins, DL-Methionine) 120 mg
He says to take 3-5 capsules daily. Also, take 2 hours before bed.
That's all for now. I hope it made sense. I typed it while tired but I wanted to get it sent. Gotta get to bed. I'm washed out. Don't you just get sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Thanks in advance.
