How are you getting on, sisterphonetica?

I have started using just the oil (same as before - 10 sprays on each arm, go 'aaaaargh!!!' for half an hour, then rinse off with just water), and stopped the capsules, in case I was overloading with mag.

It's always said about the magnesium oil that your skin gets less sensitive to it after a while. Whennnn?!!!

It's not helping me sleep, that's for sure! Wee bit nippy but that's all.

No migraines for 6 (count 'em) days. Not unheard of but always a pleasant surprise. I'm going to keep going!

My vitamin D3 arrived yesterday too, so started that and the B2. Just the Co Q10 to wait for now.

I've got a cold though and am feeling miserable and sorry for myself.

I keep forgetting to use the spray at night time so thought I'd try magnesium citrate tablets for a bit. We shall see what happens. I don't think the spray was making any difference.

I found I could tolerate it on my stomach but not the legs. I can't be bothered with the ones you have to wash off. I'm much more reliable with tablets.

I don't think so. I'm taking so many different supplements at the moment, and have been on my flunarizine for 6 weeks, if I start feeling better I won't know which is the culprit!

Just thought I'd revisit this thread. I still have terrible trouble actually absorbing magnesium orally (it goes straight through me Embarassed ), but I'm sure I must still have a deficiency, as my diet isn't at all high in it.

I really can't use the magnesium oil - my skin is far too sensitive.

I've started using Mag Phos, ie homeopathetic magnesium, as well as my regular magnesium malate capsules. It is supposed to help the body absorb it at the cell level. I have to say, it's stopped the diarrhoea immediately, so I'm definitely going to give it a try.

I have also ordered an ionic magnesium to try.

I'll update how I get on later.

Update time.

The diarrhoea returned (so sorry for all this TMI, but it is relevant, I swear! Embarassed  Very Happy ) So I started the ionic magnesium alongside the Mag Phos. The same happened.

So, I then put a whole day's worth of the ionic magnesium (at a fairly high dose) in a small bottle of water, and started sipping it throughout the day, attempting to space it out as evenly as I possibly could.

The diarrhoea stopped after a few 'shaky' days. I almost immediately started to feel an improvement in my circulation - my feet and hands felt strangely warm (I'm really not used to that sensation!)

And.... amazingly, and I really hope I'm not cursing myself here by saying it 'out loud', but I just had the best period I've had in years with my head! I've honestly never noticed any difference with my migraines with magnesium before, even when I had the injections all those years ago. But this is definitely helping.

I am beyond thrilled. The only downside is that the magnesium works out expensive at the dose I'm taking it at (I'm getting it from Amazon). Definitely worth it though.

I will update again soon.

So glad to hear you have had success. Congratulations. Your persistence has paid off. I've tried magnesium supplements before without success, so I'll have to look up the types of magnesium you are using.
