I made sure to take my T3 before I got on the plane and about an hour into the flight my legs just went crazy...

RLS and Cholesterol Meds?

Hi. I am taking Zetia for High Cholesterol. I have been on a bunch of statin drugs in the past but they bothered the muscles in my legs. I have been on Zetia for a couple weeks with no problems and it got me to thinking, has anybody out there run into a problem with chol. meds and RLS? Lewis...........

Good day all. I recently went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester for my RLS. I saw Dr. Mohrn to start the day. He took all my info and gave me a head to toe exam. Very nice and caring Dr. I then went on to see Dr. Silber. A world renowned Dr. for RLS. I first saw his assistant. Dr. Martin. A very nice, you...

I was up all night, I think because I was upset and my legs seemed to be more gross than usual and I was just wondering, can we videotape Dr. visits?? I suppose they would be on alert and watch what they say. In defense of the Dr. I saw yesterday, they do see alot of drug seekers but it's not like I...

Zach, I appreciate your support. I was getting the pen and pad out to write a letter and then I decided to let it roll. Sooner or later people like him will either have to realize that were not all seekers or go get a job at wal mart. Thanks again for your support...Take care lewis

Dr. Apt. today Feel dread

Some of you may already understand my situation about the Dr. I am seeing today at 12:30. Gotta drive 1 1/2hrs. I am going with an open mind but I still dread him focusing on Narcotics. If all goes bad I am getting ready to set up another apt in Rochester with a Dr. that was recomended on this sight...

Thanks all. I see my GP for everything but when we got into the leg thing he wanted me to see a neurologist. I suppose to do all the testing and rule out stuff. On a side note, I was on 1/2 tab daily of Mirapex for a week then my GP told me to go to full tab which is 0.25mg and after a week on the f...

Good Dr. in Western WI.

Hi all. I have my first neurologist appt. coming up and I was discussing this with my x-wife, who has fibro and she started laughing. I asked her what was up and she reminded me of an appt we went to 5-6 years ago where the new Dr. we met with turned out to be a very bad experience. She was on Vicad...
