Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Spasms are worse tonight. Had them all day too. So maybe it is the benadry and amitriptyline.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Thanks, I haven't had the RLS feeling in a long time. It's all about the spasms for me.

Re: Methadone And Insomnia

I have 5 mg tablets. I had to change the times to every 6 hours. So I take 2.5 my every 6 hours, with a change on the second to last dose. 2 pm 2.5 mg 8 pm 2.5 mg Around midnight 5 mg.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

Not sure I have RLS. All of my issues stem from my back. I knew about the problems with the two and RLS, but thanks. They are trying to knock me out at night so I don't feel spasms. My spasms are not PLMs.
Thanks

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I know now for sure that I have augmented on Mirapex.
They have increased soma, added benadryl and amitriptyline. They are trying to knock me out. I've taken the benadry, but not the amitriptyline. I just feel drugged up, drunk. Hope spasms go away.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I'm a hot mess. Sitting here at Dr.'s office, primary. She doesn't know what to do with me. Waiting, she is calling surgeon. I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep today or tonight. Who knows when. When this happens to me, I fall apart.

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I may have augmented on Mirapex. I went from half tab to whole, .125 mg. The went from every 3 or 4 days to every 48 hours. Spasms have increased. Started 12 hours after taking it the last time. Also I was required to wean off oxycodone. I'm down to 1/2 tab, 5mg in 24 hours. So maybe combination of ...

Re: Social Security - US

I had fibroid tumors that caused me to bleed years after my periods had stopped. Ended up having them removed.
Isn't fun getting older?

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I went to physical therapy yesterday. She did deep massage on my thigh. Muscles very tight. Then she did a heat treatment. Oh, all of that felt so good. Used heat that evening and night, intermittent. Best night I have had so far. Not as good tonight. That's the way it's been. This is just going to ...
