Re: total knee replacement

Re: Red Wine and Resveratrol

Wow, how interesting. I used to think red wine made my legs go nuts, but since then have decided it's more complicated than that, because some reds dont bother me (if only 2 glasses) and some whites do. Some reds have more resveratrol than others - cooler-climate reds, certain varieties like Pinot N...

Re: New member :)

The Cymbalta certainly might be an issue and I agree that you should try stopping it to see if that helps the WED/RLS - but unless you address the ferritin, you will probably have WED/RLS symptoms no matter whether you take Cymbalta or not. You will need to raise your ferritin substantially, as stev...

Re: Just Need to Vent

rjdishon you;re in for a rough ride, and I suggest you find a doctor who understands how to treat augmented WED/RLS and withdrawal from a dopamine agonist. As Holland explained, augmentation is what it's called when the DA makes your symptoms worse. It seems to help when it kicks in, but symptoms st...

Re: My pharma diary

A systematic approach with careful observation is my method to work out what is the cause for a specific effect. But that takes a lot of time and it is super easy to jump to the wrong conclusions. Amen. It's very complicated and no one of us has a life span long enough to run these experiments prop...

SLeepless, I\m glad the bed looks like it's going to work out.
Someone needs to remind him (& who else but a loving wife ) that doctors should never diagnose themselves even though they always think they can.

Re: My pharma diary

Qyx, what do you think about the role of the gut biome in depression, and in neurological and autoimmune disorders? And the role of diet in depression? I have read some things, like intermittent fasting causes a reduction of dopamine release which upregulates dopamine receptors, increasing sensitivi...
