I just read this article about research being done with Cannabis sativa that may make it possible to reduce the effects of the THC while providing the medical benefits of other compounds found in marijuana. Thought I 'd pass it on. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2011/08/19/139762352/cracking-the-ma...

When the warm weather came I took off my compression stockings. At first I was happy to have them off as I was able to go barefoot at a moments notice. I noticed my RLS getting worse, first just at night then during the day. I didn't make the connection between the socks and the increased RLS at fir...

I think you are very brave. You are doing what is best for you and your baby. There is no shame in taking care of yourself so your baby can be born healthy. Even if baby has to detox after birth, it is better than what could happen if you don't get your RLS under control. I hope you find peace in yo...

Hi Betty, I know what you mean about the knees and pain from anything tight around them. I searched for stockings that had a very loose band around the top and if I push them down a bit below my knees, they don't bother me at all! And they don't fall down. There are so many types of compression stoc...

I have the knee high stockings. They took some getting used to as I too don't like pressure on my legs. I can't even stand a sheet at night. I tried wrapping my legs in ace bandages too, that lasted about two minutes. I couldn't get them off fast enough. My RLS affects my legs, torso, arms and espec...

I got my stockings 20-30 compression. I love them! They really reduce the pain I always feel in my legs. Today is Tuesday my second day at work wearing the stockings. I have not had RLS in my legs either day and I sit at a desk. Usually by 10:30am I am squirming. I also sleep better at night. I don'...

I got sudafed non-drowsey sinus and after one dose had to take an extra percoset to get to sleep. Today at work I have taken 1/2 percoset at 8:00am and another at noon. It is now 2:30 and I'm squirming. Oh well, I won't do that again. Susan, I got a neti pot yesterday and am going to use it as a pro...
