Migraine Headaches and Magnesium
A study appearing in Cephalalgia (1993;13:94-98) looked at magnesium levels in patients with migraine headaches and compared them to healthy controls. There were 30 patients who had migraine headaches with aura, 60 without aura and 30 healthy controls. The amount of magnesium in the red blood cells was measured. The migraine sufferers had significantly lower magnesium levels than did the subjects without headaches.
