Magnesium deficiency has been linked to both migraines and clusters. Intravenous injections of magnesium have been effective in both aborting headaches, and, in some case, shortening cycles.

From what I have seen posted here, oral magnesium supplements seem to work best at dosages of 1000 mg per day, but only when taken in the absence of calcium supplements, since calcium tends to prevent the absorption of magnesium.

You may want to double your dose of magnesium and discontinue the calcium for a week and see if there is a further improvement.
