Fibromyalgia is often associated to mineral deficiencies such as magnesium deficiency. Though an underrated mineral, Magnesium is in fact involved in over 300 chemical activity in the body and is especially crucial in normal functioning of nerves, muscles and the digestive tract. Low levels of this element can lead to muscle pain, migraine, sleeplessness and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), all common symptoms of fibromyalgia. Magnesium can be obtained from beans, green vegetables and whole grains. Supplements can also help patients restore the normal levels of Magnesium. Increased intake of Magnesium can help relieve pain, insomnia and fatigue in fibromyalgia patients.
