Hello again,

I just found some similar symptoms between low estrogen and magnesium deficiency.

Is there any lady who found some kind of relief by taking magnesium supplements?

thank u

    Hi Evi,

    absolutely. I started using Magnesium cell salts a couple of years ago, and also magnesium night oil., literally, they saved my life and sanity. I can sleep now, and my anxiety is calmed by the magnesium. My doctor is now suggesting it to patients, instead of beta blockers, sleeping tablets etc. I am also on hrt, but with the magnesium and vit b12 and vit d which are all natural vitamins we should have, that's it. I won't have withdrawal from any meds to contend with, so I'm feeling chuffed that this regime has worked for me. Good luck x

    Evi...this is spooky! I just started magnesium supplement now...just took a tablet with my dinner. The vestibular neuro I saw the other day wants me to try that and B2, along with med for my migraines. I had tried the powdered one before that tastes like lemonade...be careful with that one...if you use too much...better stay close to the toilet! 😉

      hello...both up to 400mg day (200mg twice a day). Be careful of the magnesium (diarrhea). Also mentioned that some vitamins will have everything in one...migravent for example. However, there is butterbur and feverfew in them...he said there is evidence of liver problems with that. Better to take seperate. I am cautiously optomistic right now...will keep you posted!

    My calcium pill has magnesium in it which I take in the morning. But I have heard so many good things about magnesium that I take 500mg at night. I'm hoping that it helps with deeper sleep and aches/pains that I have.

    I had an afib episode, they said my magnesium level was low and they gave me some. I believe potassium and magnesium supplements help. Up your calcium intake also.

    HI Evie, i swear by magnesium supplements.. They are great for anxiety but also fantastic for muscle aches and pains as they work as a muscle relaxant.. I discovered them around 10 years ago and they've played a big part in settling things down for me.. I hope you find they are good for you too - Jo
