I have to say it again, how strange for all of us to have something in common, and yet it be so different for each of us.

Char SSD

Hi GF. I am on SSD but it takes a couple of years to get it. As long as you have a good med. profile of all you have done to keep going, all the dr's you've seen, etc, that will help. Talk to your PC and your specialists. Also, get a sleep test to show the PLMD and how it interupts your sleep, your ...

Hi Anne.
This is a terrific post. If the iNs. co. don't get you, something else does.
And to have a dr. say they appreciate us telling them about rls, almost makes it worth haing it. Notice I said " almost ". LOL
