i have been taking magnesium (1,000 mg) for the week before and during my period and i have noticed a slight but significant difference in the inflammation and exhaustion i get around that time. has anyone else ever had that experience?
i am a little worried though as someone told me in passing that this much magnesium could cause a kidney stone :eek::eek::eek:???

Here's a bit more info:
