Re: Hoping for a better night

I can't drink wine either, or any alcohol for that matter. Irritates me. I was never a daily or even weekly drinker, but once in awhile it was nice.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

Yes, Betty, I am muti-tasker too. I never just watch TV. The dinner sounds wonderful. I cooked today too. I was in the mood to do something I usually don't cook. Simmering boneless pork chops, red onion, diced tomatoes. Wild rice, broccoli and a salad. It's all for me, hubby doesn't like anything th...

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

[/quote] This is so true. Especially the feeling that you're just putting in time to make it thru the day. I remember feelings like that. I hope things look up soon and I hope you don't have to wait til your new specialists start sorting things out before things look up.[/quote] I used to be so prod...

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

That's horrible, Deb. I like to read too and get a lot done at night. Sometimes I need to walk too much so I listen to podcasts. I can almost always get to sleep if I go to bed at the right time but I wake up around one and a half to two hours later. That's when the games begin. Last night it was a...

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

Another thing that drives me crazy is insomnia. Last night I was awake from 3 am to around 8 am, just wide awake, no RLS, no spasms, etc. I had slept from 11 pm to 3 am. Finally went back to sleep this morning for awhile, then spasms woke me up. On the up side, I finished my current book.

Re: Hoping for a better night

If I eat chocolate, I am up all night. I stay away from all caffeine.
Hope you have a better night.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

There is nothing else for me to take to alternate the methadone. The mirapex no longer works. I am exhausted day too.

Magnesium and CoQ10

Recently I went to a specialist of RLS. I have RLS and severe PLMs. It's the PLM's that drive me crazy. The doctor prescribed magnesium 400 to 800 mg twice a day and CoQ10 100 mg three times a day. I also take methadone 5 mg tabs, 10 mg in 24 hours. I spread it out. I am not sure the magnesium and C...

Re: Sleeping Arrangements

Keep reassuring him, that he is not bothering you. See if you can keep him with you a week, to see how you feel. Then tell him. Good luck My husband and I sleep in two rooms. We just couldn't sleep together. It is not just my legs, but his pain keeps him awake, when I need to sleep. We are fine. He ...

Re: Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

Thanks for letting us know. I have put it on my home screen and will tell husband. We shop a lot on there since we are so far away from stores.

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I had a bad night. Up all night. I finally slept from 6 am to 9 am. So needless to say, I am tired today.
