Re: I love sleep....

Thanks guys. Last night was lovely. I got to spend time with the husband even though he had to work late. He had me order chinese food for lunch which I love, lol. He got me ice cream last night after we had a nice dinner. I had to cook dinner myself, but personally I dont trust him to cook what I m...

Re: I love sleep....

I know that I need to do something about this. You guys have given me great advice and everything...I really appreciate it. I cant do this on my own and I realize it. I'm getting on insurance soon, so I'll be able to afford to get the help that I need with this. My husband has been more understandin...

Re: New here. :)

Thank you for that. It really was something that I needed to read. I guess I've been overly anxious about this because I don't want to be like my mother. She complains that she is in constant pain...I do believe this to an extent, but I feel that there is no way that someone can be constantly sick e...

Re: I love sleep....

Thanks guys. As far as the "nookie" goes...this happens almost every night. I'd like to think that it helps, but sadly it doesn't. Hes a good person...but he just thinks that things like this are in peoples heads. I will see if he will read these things, but I highly doubt that he will. He...

Re: New here. :)

Thanks for understanding yall. I did not receive a call from my doctors office like I was told that I would, so I called them. The nurse that took my call yesterday said that she would tell my doctor and have him write a prescription. I called back this morning to tell her about me wanting to try so...

Re: I love sleep....

I could not imagine my calves doing that. I hate charlie horses, so I keep thinking that it would feel exactly like a charlie horse! I feel so sorry to hear that RLS effects you so badly. I get to the point where I cannot stand anything touching my legs. It seems like the nerves are standing straigh...

Re: New here. :)

I thought about that all last night before I even read this post this morning. I started thinking that what if the smaller dosage doesn't work, but still gives me the side effects that I do not want to have. I got a call from a different nurse this morning because the nurse I spoke to yesterday was ...

Re: I love sleep....

I have tried numerous things at once with no such luck. I take OTC sleeping medication which makes me FEEL sleepy, but once I lay down its completely useless. Before I go to bed I always take a hot bath and lay back and stretch my legs. I usually reach for my toes and hold that position for a few m...

I love sleep....

When I can get it! Sleep does not come easy to me...I am sure most (if not all) of you understand how I feel about this. I love sleep. I really do. I just wish that the night contained more hours of me actually sleeping in peace rather than tossing, turning, and trying to find a comfortable position...

Re: New here. :)

Yes, I forgot to ask for that test when I went to see my doctor last time. I need to try to get in so I can get this tested. The idea that my symptoms could decrease or go away...sounds heavenly to say the least. WED is terrible and I hate not sleeping because it makes me grumpy. I'm a really happy ...

Re: New here. :)

I have taken anti depressants for quite a while...but I always take myself off of them when I feel like I do not need them anymore. This has happened several times since I was first put on them at 13 years old. I cannot say for sure if the WED is better or worse when I do not take them. It seems lik...

Re: New here. :)

Thank you all so much for your support. I feel so much better since I have found this site and found people who truly understand what living with WED is like. My doctor understood which felt amazing. Since being off of the Ambien I have felt more like myself...stable pretty much. I don't feel the de...

Re: New here. :)

Ice cream doesn't make my symptoms worse. I guess I'm lucky, lol. I went to the doctor the other day...he put me on Ambien to help me sleep. I flushed it down the toilet after taking it for a couple of days. It made me talk in my sleep and basically despise my husband and lose all trust that I had i...

My Story <3

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica and I'm 26 years old. I have never been diagnosed with RLS, but I know this is what I have because of the research that I've done. It all started when I was around 15 years old. I had went through some very tough times with my family due to my parents almost getting a divorc...
