I take a magnesium supplement called Natural Calm, every early evening and just love this stuff. Lately, I have been batteling a slight case of bronchitis and instead of going on antibiotics, which always make me worse, I bought a bronchitis tea from the healthfood store and have been sipping that for 2 weeks. Well, this stuff works very very well. My congestion is way down and my cough has disappeared almost entirely and at least I feel better that way. You have to drink the tea for a while for it to work, so I was ignoring my magnesium and just didn't take it. Wow, what a big mistake, I was extra achy and in more pain, my sleep wasn't as good, and I scheduled an appointment with my massage therapist thinking that it would help, it didn't. When I went for my appointment last week, she commented on how extremely sensitive I was. Usually, I am always a little sensitive to massage, but it does usually help me, not this time. She is aware of my FM, and she asked me if I was doing anything different, I just told her that I wasn't taking my magnesium for two weeks. She happens to think magnesium is great for FM patients and she almost yelled at me for not taking it. At first, I thought maybe it was the bronchitis tea that I was taking that caused me to be more in pain, since I'm so sensitive, but I really do not think was it. I started again with my usual dose of magnesium (about 400 milligrams) a few days ago, and am better, not as much pain. It is always trail and error with FM. I will be mixing my drink of magnesium pretty soon for the night. Hugs, Chelz.
