WED name is not misleading, RLS name is

We have another indication that the name Willis-Ekbom disease is superior to the name RLS for patients with this disease. A previous study showed that the name restless legs syndrome actually affects diagnosis by creating false positives. This study suggests that the fifth criterion for diagnosis, a...

Re: Trying to get off Ropinirole

I'm also just interested in finding a natural remedy, rather than remain on drugs that have side effects. My RLS is incredlby severe though, it's like torture. That is probably not your base level of RLS/WED, you are probably in an augmented state. The dopamine-type medications, including ropinirol...

Re: something easy that worked for me

I use three different message balls because some of the trigger points respond differently to the size of the message balls, My PLM feels like someone has punched me in the stomach while I am sleeping so I have to hop out of bed immediately thus ending my night’s sleep. I can only sleep three to fo...

Re: Is anyone having a successful 'drug free' experience?

I went on a keto diet and I was drug free for about 4 months. But then my symptoms returned. It sounds like you are already eating a keto dinner. I also have used several forms of massage to loosen up tight muscles. I am able to reduce the amount of medication I need because of this. Anything that ...

Re: Introducing myself

When you stop taking the DA you augmented on, your body will go thru a withdrawal phase that is like being augmented only much worse. Until that phase is over, whatever new medication you;re taking will be needed at a higher dose than you would need if you were past the withdrawal phase. The symptom...

Yes, wall squats or any squat hold. Going up on toes while squatting can help too.

Re: Plantar Fasciitis Night Sock

Mine has always been focused at my joints (ankles, knees, wrists), ranging out from there along the limbs as the intensity ramps up. And - hard to think about it, but I think more along the front of the leg and the outside of the arm....

Re: Is anyone having a successful 'drug free' experience?

@wilabozo: Were you on a dopamine-type medication like pramipexole? No dopamine-type medications; augmentation will torture you endlessly. Two weeks is not long enough for some people to recover from it. Your best chance at medication-free existence is iron infusions (intravenous iron). Oral iron ca...

Re: Proferrin/Iron Heme Polypeptide Tablet

I started eating liver when I went on the Wahls diet in 2014. You're supposed to have organ meats 3x a week but I don't come anywhere close to that. Still, a handy way to eat it is to cook a whack of bacon and onions, then sear the liver and barely cook it in the bacon grease, then grind it all up i...

Probable Augmentation

I take the following; 5mg oxycocdon, 1mg pramipexle,and 300mg gabapentin. I took 4mg of pramipexle for a while but augmentation was a concern. My Neurologist also presented a study showing it actually my cause RLS/PLMS to possibly progress more rapidly. restless, even though you wisely decreased yo...

Re: Experience with Injectafer?

The inflammation or just the pain itself or something about the hip injury could be what triggered your WED/RLS that night. It might be good if you can keep from doing anything that might cause your arthritis to flare up while you are tapering, so you can have a better idea of the cause if your WED/...

Re: Cold Turkey Blues

I am so impressed with you! That's hellish hard to do. You're approaching it right, not expecting anything of yourself and living in the moment as much as possible, finding what relief you could and snatching whatever sleep you can get. Don't forget, during those times that your symptoms are still b...
