Fibromyalgia and Magnesium Connection

Posted in Fibromyalgia tagged , , , , , at 9:25 pm by PCOSLady

The Connection Between Magnesium and Fibromyalgia
Some women with fibromyalgia also have PCOS, sleep apnea, hypothyroid condition and/or more…
Fibromyalgia is not classified as a disease; therefore there are no tests that can reliably confirm its presence. At present, physicians rely on a special technique called “Mapping”. This exam focuses on eighteen specific areas of tenderness. The patient must have pain in eleven of these eighteen areas for at least three months.
Studies show that 90-95% of the U.S. population is deficient in magnesium. Most American adults do not obtain the recommended daily allowance of 400-500 mg. Additionally, a large majority of Americans consume a diet of processed and cooked foods, which increases the body’s demand for magnesium.
Home Test: (may help as well)
I suggest a hot bath with a box of Epsom Salts dissolved in it… You should feel better in minutes… Your body will absorb the magnesium… I hope this will ease your pain… It cured a woman diagnosed with RSD…
