Re: Restiffic

My doctor wanted me to try it. He gave them to me. All it did for me was make my feet hurt. Hated it.

Re: Social Security - US

Sorry to hear of your problems going on. I got disability on the first try at age 60. It took 6 months. I got mine for short term memory loss. Of course the RLS and sleep apnea was the cause. I was in New Mexico when I applied. I went to a special law office that, that's all they did. I think I was ...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

When I said spasms were coming from thigh, I meant the back, but I feel them in the thigh. They are no longer jerking my leg. If I were to measure the length of my groin pain, I'd say it was about 6 inches in length. Now it is just 2 inches. The ride home was a b#%$×, but I made it. Spasms all the w...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Surgery went well. Was supposed to go home after one night here. Had to stay second night. Spasms were bad. They had trouble trying to figure out what to give me. It seems that since I have been on methadone so long, it messes up the receptors. They doubled my methadone and started giving me mirapex...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Thanks. I saw my hip Doctor last week for 5 yr check up. They will never have to be replaced. Plus he said I should not have any trouble walking. The knees are good for another 5 to 10 years. Interesting, he said I won't have symptoms. I get them all rechecked in another 5 years. My rehab for the ba...

I had had a fairly good period, but for the last week, I haven't had much sleep.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

As usual I am getting very nervous before this back surgery. I have had so many surgeries, I have lost count. ( knees, hips, shoulder, etc) This one will probably be the most challenging, the most pain and the most restrictions, for the longest period of time. Because of the doctors appt yesterday, ...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Good, Steve. I just know that my RLS and at first mild spasms started after I started having back pains. It was in my 30's. Thanks

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Today I looked up information regarding my back. I couldn't believe it, when I saw exactly my symptoms. Spasms in leg, also numbness, tingling and nerve pain. I can't tell you what a relief it was to read all of that. I am concerned about if I have the surgery, what will be left. Not all back surger...
