Magnesium, migraines and fatigue
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Angie,

First of all, take a look at the Signs of Magnesium Deficiency page and you'll see that both migraines and fatigue are symptoms of magnesium deficiency, so it's very likely that you'll benefit from magnesium.

Take a look at my Magnesium Dosage page and it will give you EXACT instructions on how much magnesium to take and what kind of magnesium.

But you should DEFINITELY get your vitamin D level checked as well. While it's not as strong a connection as magnesium, Vitamin D can be related to migraines. BUT nearly everyone is EXTREMELY vitamin D deficient and that could actually be the reason for your fatigue more so than the magnesium.

Anyone with either pain or fatigue of ANY kind needs to get their vitamin d level checked and get their Vitamin D Level up to the researcher recommended optimal levels as outlined on that page.

Do NOT think that because you drink milk and take a multivitamin that you get enough vitamin d. That is merely a drop in the bucket compared to actual Vitamin D Requirements.

And there is really no need to take calcium with your magnesium. When you resolve your magnesium deficiency, you will actually ABSORB the calcium that you are getting- especially if you optimize your vitamin d levels. That you drink milk is actually probably one of the REASONS that you are tired all the time because milk in most stores is just another processed food and is not really fit for human consumption.

And as far as kidney stones are concerned, there's just no need to take calcium- even if you WERE to stop drinking milk. Just get your magnesium and vitamin d and its likely to DECREASE your risk of kidney stones and not INCREASE it.
