No riboflavin gives me a bad head

I'm getting lab work done tomorrow and my surgeon recommends we don't take any supplements for three days before. This means stopping my B2 supplements and my magnesium ones too. That turned out to be a majorly bad idea. It didn't take 24 hours before my head was hurting much worse than usual and for longer and more often.

I decided lab work be damned and I started taking the B2s again. However, I didn't start up the magnesium right away and I didn't take any today as I am getting my magnesium levels checked so I did want to at least sort of follow my instructions.

I can't wait to get back on these things and to see the neurologist again. I'm also wondering, if it's clear the B12 is doing something, if I should take more or possibly something stronger. I'm going to push more for something stronger now that I know drugs can help. (Okay, I say that, but we'll see what happens.)

I'm also getting a DEXA scan tomorrow and they also recommend no calcium the day of the test. I wonder why.
