Fibromyalgia and Magnesium and Energy Levels

Lately it seems that Fibromyalgia has taken over my life. This week has been one of the most painful since I was diagnosed. I live in a rural area and don't have access to a specialist on Fibro so mostly its a learn on the Internet and try it out treatment for me. All that being said I wanted to share one success story from my research. I have been taking magnesium malate since October so I feel that is long enough to judge that it has worked for me.
 Magnesium Malate

Anyone who has Fibro or knows someone with it, understands the overwhelming fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. I googled and read and googled and read and over and over heard mention of magnesium helping with fibromyalgia. So I decided to give it a try. I first tried a different form of magnesium and it helped but I read that magnesium malate was better absorbed into the body so I tried a different. Really between the 2 I can't tell much difference as long as I remember to take it. I take 1 tablet a day although you can take more.  After a week of taking this magnesium, I could feel a difference. I have way more energy. It isn't like the energy you get when you drink an energy drink, I am not bouncing all over the place, my heart isn't racing, etc.. But I do feel more like a real person again. I have the energy to go about my daily life again.
An unexpected effect was that once I started taking the magnesium, my monthly female problems greatly improved. May of 2015 I was hospitalized and given blood transfusions because my iron count was way too low. For 8 years I have had issues with bleeding heavily and for weeks at a time. The doctors decided in June that we were finally going to do a hysterectomy. The doctor and I had an issue and I stopped seeing him so that my surgery didn't happen. But once I took magnesium that bleeding stopped. If I remember to take the magnesium every day (not going to lie, sometimes I forget for a week or 2) then I don't even have a period that month and if I do it is way lighter and shorter. I prefer not having them so I try to remember to take the pill.  My daughter has had horrible period cramps her whole life. The doctors say she has endometriosis, so I told her to try the pills out. She started taking the first magnesium pills I ordered and now she takes them every day because they stopped her cramps.
