Re: Wahls diet for WED? Trying it.

Thanks for the good wishes. Even though the film worked pretty good when I was still taking a higher dose of the alprazolam, things are not that great presently. I am trying not to go up too fast on the belbuca, because I want the effects of the alprazolam to wear off first, so I don't end up taking...

Re: Experience with Injectafer?

Glad to hear that it has helped so much. Hope you can overcome the hiccup. Even if you had to keep at a low level of kratom, I think this could be considered an excellent result.

Re: Wahls diet for WED? Trying it.

I have the buprenorphine film. No more codeine either.

Re: Suboxone questions

Wantok, Nervousness is a side effect of both of the drugs in suboxone. So there is no way to tell other than to try the belbuca to see if it would be any better. When I was taking the sublingual buprenorphine, I misunderstood and thought it was generic suboxone. Later I read up on it and realized wh...

Re: Wahls diet for WED? Trying it.

No. After I stopped the sublingual buprenorphine, the pain specialist put me on codeine without Tylenol. It was too low of a dose to do much good. I then started alprazolam with the codiene, which helped my jerking. But I still felt tired during the day. After a period of time, I just couldn't go wi...

Re: Wahls diet for WED? Trying it.

Going Keto only helped me for about four months in 2014 I think. It seems like it has helped you longer. But I took no medications during that time. The only thing I can say that might help a little is to fast. Drink water only for a day. This has helped me during some of my worst times. But unfortu...

Re: IRLS Study group and iron IVs

You might try doing this with a hematologist. Hematologists do this kind of procedure more frequently than neurologists. Your doctor may just be uncomfortable about doing a procedure that he/she is unfamiliar with. You might see if you can find a hematologist who can help you.

Re: Suboxone questions

I tried cutting my film in half diagonally. That seems to be the easiest and most accurate way for me. I rarely, if ever, read the instructions that came with a medication before. I probably should have read them more. But with films, it is a whole different paradigm -- you definitely need to read t...

Re: Hyland's Restful Legs

I tried this too. It seemed to help for a while and then it didn't. Possibly a placebo effect.

Re: Suboxone questions

I haven't switched from suboxone to belbuca. But I did recently start taking belbuca from a doctor who really knows about RLS. Prior to that I was seeing a pain management doctor and I was essentially just showing them the RLS foundation drug list and we would guess as to what I should take. I am we...

Re: Suicidal thoughts

I had checked my original comment and saw no additional ones so I quit checking for a while. Thanks for all of your advice and expressions of support. DebBluebird, I am so sorry to hear of your situation. I have found that some of my worst times were when I was taking Lyrica, or Neurontin. Dr. B sai...

Re: Wahls diet for WED? Trying it.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties. Somethimes it seems like RLS is an opponent in a chess match. And you make a move that helps you out; then the RLS makes a move that messes you up again. I just saw Dr. B today for the first time and I am very optimistic. I suggest you ask Ann about him. Steve
