Sylvie Thome Posted June 28, 2012 Share Posted June 28, 2012 Hi, I've posted under the supplements previously discussing magnesium and sleep issues. Basically, I have always been a poor/light sleeper. I would wake up around 2-3 a.m. and be awake for an hour or so, then have restless sleep until I got up around 6:30-7. Over the years I've tried all the common recommended remedies (from Ambien to no computer/tv before bed, etc.). I do think I've mostly solved my sleep issues with a combo of eating fairly clean/primal after my Whole 30 in February, and taking chelated magnesium before bedtime. However, I have found that the week before my period, despite eating the same and taking mag the same, I wake up at some point close to 2 a.m. and toss and turn for the rest of the early morning. I did notice that when I was generally sleeping poorly, the week before my period was always the worst. I'm assuming this is hormonal, and am wondering if anyone else has noticed a pattern like this, and if they've been able to solve it with food tweaks or supplements. thanks! Sylvie Link to comment
