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...

Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I went to the pain Doctor today, hoping to get scheduled for an injection in my back. I am loaded with arthritis, plus I have had a laminectomy, and had a herniated disc in the same area. Since my spasms have become progressively worse plus my pain and I have had to add several meds in the last year...

Re: Published Research - General Sleep and RLS (WED)

I lost most of my sense of smell and taste in 2006, after a cold. It is frustrating.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I can't take Lyrica, made me suicidal. I don't remember what it did for my legs. I took it several months. Gabapentin helps me with my nerve pain and the spasms I get. Since my RLS and leg spasms come from my back, I think it is time to get another injection in my back. It has been causing me more p...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Well, let's see. I take gabapentin 600 mg, afternoon and evening. Methadone 2.5 mg every 6 hours Mirapex .125 mg. The fifth night I take it again. The first two nights I sleep wonderfully. Oxycodone 2.5 mg on night three and four when mirapex no longer working. I think I need to stop the oxycodone. ...
