Magnesium, phospholipid and energy metabolism between migraine syndromes.
I found it very interesting when one of my patients with seizures consulted an ER doctor friend of hers about her seizures. He basically informed her that she needed to be on antiseizure medication (with a standing order for bloodwork to check liver enzymes every two weeks…) and nothing else had any effect.
Apparently he hasn’t cracked a medical journal in several years, and sadly, when doctors display their ignorance on subjects they are not educated in it confuses patients and can compromise their adherence to recommendations. In this article we see that magnesium has an effect on hyperexitability of the cortex. This article relates these findings to the aura of a migraine, which is essentially seizure activity.
