Fibromyalgia: is a systemic pain syndrome which produces more general pain throughout the body. To be included in the diagnosis of FM, this pain should be located in at least three out of four quadrants of the body or along the entire spine, and must be present for a minimum of three months. For migraine see a headache specialist or orofacial pain practitioner.

See a neurologist: Your migraines do not appear to be under control. You should keep a log of the location, timing, duration, and intensity of these episodes and take the log with you to a neurologist. Before you jump to other diagnoses, consider controlling your migraine headaches first. This may help to make you feel less foggy. https://www.aan.com/Guidelines/Home/ByTopic?topicId=16

Magnesium is helpful for migraine headaches because it is a smooth muscle relaxer. 200 mg twice daily is a good place to start. If your body is getting too much, your stool will get soft. Most people are actually deficient and it really is helpful. See your doctor so that he/she can assess all of your symptoms. Try eliminating Gluten, processed foods and refined sugars.
