Poem I Found On Website

Here is a link to two WED poems. I sure can relate to the second one word for word written by Ron Tranmer during a flight in 2004. I've been on work travel duty so much. My boss put me on another team so I wouldn't have to fly with WED. Go to http://www.rlshelp.org/ then go to the bottom and click o...

Re: doctor in mississippi

Go to rls.org and click on "find a doctor". I see three, which are listed below. If you call to make an appointment, make sure they specialize in WED because what happened to me was I went to a doctor that was said on a fibromyalgia site that she specialized in fibromyalgia. She told me sh...

Re: RLS and Suicide?

I thought of suicide as I was laying in pain throughout my entire body, especially my legs. The thought immediately left my mind as soon as I thought of what it would do to my husband. I threw it out of my mind but that does not mean I do not understand because when I get flare ups, it does come int...

Re: New to Site

Hi Jordan, Welcome to the site. In regards to Mirapex, it works wonders for me; however, it can cause augumentation and is dangerous for those with heart conditions.

Re: getting a doctor to understand

I strongly recommend you do not take opioids. It is a serious narcotic and very additive. A person I know ended up divorced because she got put on oxycondone for pain. She needs more and more to make the pain go away. Opioids can ruin your life as well as your relationships. In other words, it can b...
