Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Before I reduced the methadone, my sleep was ok and I was having milder spasms. The last 2 weeks has been difficult, less sleep. I figure withdrawal from methadone, but I'm determined to stop taking it. About a month ago I bought some Hemp oil. I have only taken it a few times. Every time I take som...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I have cut back on the methadone by 1 half tablet. I was taking 2.5 mg every 6 hours. Now I am taking b 2.5 mg every 8 hrs. Before I did this my sleep started to change again to fewer hours. I've gone from 8 and 10 hours to 4 and 6 hrs. Mostly 4 hrs. Last night I slept a couple of hrs in the evening...

My son in law passed away yesterday. He was a Lt. Col. in the Army, over 20 years. He had esophageal cancer. Suffered for 2 years. Had been treated for reflux. If anyone is taking meds for that, make sure you get periodic esophagus scopes. It's the only way. Otherwise by the time symptoms show up it...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I think I will wait quite awhile before I try to reduce methadone.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

It will be interesting to see if I have any RLS as I reduce meds. I have had 9 nights without spasms in the last 2 months. Still waiting for two nights in a row.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I am past the 3 month post op. No more restrictions. Overall I am better. I think as time goes by it will just get better. I hope I will be able to reduce meds.

Re: Characteristics of PLMD/PLMs

Deb, all the standard descriptions of the movements go out the window when medication side effect or augmentation come into play. If you've seen my sleep video, my movements during augmentation look nothing like expected. I was accused of faking it because my movements did not fit "normal"...

It has turned out that every night is different. It is getting better most of the time.

Re: Vicks Vapo-Rub on Soles of Feet

My husband uses it around his toes to heal fungus. It works. Healed his feet, then keeps it away.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I've had so many good nights and about 7 with no spasms at all. Last night spasms would hardly stop. I could get away with rubbing my leg a lot of the time, but had to ride my bike several times instead of pacing. I was up all night. I finally took an oxy about 7:30 this morning. Just slept 4 hours....

Re: where is everyone?

Oh Betty, I hope the two of you are feeling better. He probably has a a lifting restriction for awhile. I have been losing my balance some lately. We must all try to be as careful as possible. I am almost done with my bending restrictions, but I have been dropping everything. Using my reacher to pic...

Re: Bed Recommendation!

Mattresses are only supposed to last about 10 years. My mattress that is only about 4 years is starting to show wear. Like everything else they make things to wear out so we have to buy a new one.
