A while back I posted on this board about taking a magnesium supplement. I wasn't sure what kind since there are so many. I finally decided on taking a supplement called "Natural Calm". This supplement contains magnesium citrate. It comes in a powder form which you mix with hot water. The normal dose is 3 teaspoons which consist of 615 milligrams of magnesium. There is good news and bad news. First the good, the supplement claims to "calm" you down and help with sleep. It does. I have only taken 1 teaspoon a night because I wanted to start off slowly. Now the bad. Tonight will be my 6th night taking this stuff and I have to say that I think it is contributing to giving me very vivid dreams, most of them more like nightmares. Last night was probably the worst nightmare ( I won't get into the nightmare). The good news is that I do feel calm and somewhat sleepy and I will fall asleep half an hour faster than usual, even on a lower dose. With my fibro, I am sensitive to everything. I know that the magnesium might not have anything to do with this, but I just happen to be one of those FM people who just get strange things that happen to me whenever I take anything new. I was not anticipating nightmares from this whatsoever, never crossed my mind, so I don't think it is in my head or anything like that. My sister has asked me how this supplement was working for me, and I didn't dare tell her my "theory" about the nightmares, she would just roll her eyes at me and think it was all in my head, which it still might be, but I don't know. For now, I will try to continue taking it for a few more nights. I was hoping that a higher dosage, it might help with my chronic pain, not sure about that either. What are your thoughts, if any. Hugs, Chelz. PS, I am not on any prescription meds as of right now.
