RLS and ADHD

Does anyone have both RLS and ADHD? I was told I need to go to a doctor for this. I took some test online and after doing some research found that having both are common.

Pain meds really work

I have had RLS since I was a child. I went to a doc about a year and a half ago and was given gabapentin and ropinirole and clonazepam. The Clonazepam worked ok the other 2 gave me a major headache or just made me feel worse. I got into a car accident a few months ago and they gave me some pain meds...

First Neurologist Appointment

My Family Doc just dropped me because he said he didn't know what to do next with my RLS. I guess that is a good thing but I am really nervous about my appointment with the Neurologist so any tips would help.

Ferritin Test!

My only question is that I am on Requil at this time and my hemoglobin was at an 9 when the doctor gave it to me a week and a half ago. He never said anything about my Ferritin level so I am worried about this. The requil has worked ok but lastnight I was already having problems not major but they a...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

-ANN- I'm going to give some background first. I have had RLS since I was a child, I was told like many of us that it was growing pains. Then as I got older I talked about it with my family more, and they told me that not only does my Grandmother have the same symptoms, but my Mother as well.. This ...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

I do have a question why didn't the Requil work on its own. I was told by my doc to stop all the other stuff he gave me and to try just the one 'Requil' for a few weeks and I just wanted to know what other issues were you dealling with along with just the Requil!

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

I think you are right I need to give it some time with my doc. I have only known him for a month and he has already given me Gabapentin, Requip, clonazepam, which of none of them have worked as of yet but I will give it some more time. I really want to have some help but I think my Doc is really try...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

Ann- I havn't asked what my Ferritin levels are but my blood was at a 9. He put me on IRON pills and Vit. C & D. I don't think I have the nerve to ask for an opioid. I know they would work because I had a Leep procedure done in Jan, and the doctor gave me vicodon 10mg and I sleep like a baby. No...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

You know I really don't know I will have to ask him on my next appointment. My question is what if all of these "dopamine meds end up not working" What is the next step because I'm really tired!!!!!! I hate to be a baby but I really want to have a tantrum right now : (

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

I am really worried that it may make my RLS worse from what I have read on this site, the last thing I want is to make it worse. I wonder why he did that as well I didn't even know that he should started at a lower dose. I am just very apprehensive about taking it.

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

[ b]I have not been on in a while but I have had a bunch of things happen. The doctor did say that I was extremely anemic and he put me on Iron pills. I also have substantial lower back nerve damage that I have to go to a physical therapist for. I am taking gabapentin 600 mg that doesn't work and I ...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

Ann that is great advice!!! I will take time to write down what I need, and want out of life, and what is holding me back due to the RLS. Then really take time out to go over it with the Doctor. I really need to take a step back, look at the immediate issues at the current moment, then once those ar...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

Your right I feel like I am just going and going almost sometimes I feel as though I try to avoid sleep because I dont want to be let down. Is that crazy. I wanted so badly for the clonazepam to work and when it didn't I was just once again let down. I hope the doctor continues to be understanding w...

Re: First Doc apt 2morow

I am not sure if he did a ferritin serum iron blood test. I hope so. I tried the meds he gave me last night and it kinda worked at first but in the middle of the night I got back up back to the same old games. My legs once again had a mind of there own. So I was up walking circles in the living room...
