Insomnia & Anxiety

Well, it's 6:45AM and yet another sleepless night has passed. I've gotten probably 7 or 8 hours of sleep in the last four days, and not all at once, unfortunately. Just little 15 - 20 minute naps. I'm sometimes even afraid to drive because I never know when a "nap attack" will hit. I know ...

Re: I'm back! ..... and scared

Hi! Sorry to hear that you're being treated so poorly by a doc who seems unwilling to try to understand your condition. I am also on methadone & have been for 3 years. I get mine from Dr. Christopher Earley at Johns Hopkins. I live in PA and he sends me a script for 90 days worth. He is a wonder...

Re: WED/RLS doctors

I noticed Dr. Christopher Earley on a post here. He's at Johns Hopkins Bayview, and is really wonderful! He was in an international study group a few years ago and is extremely knowledgeable about WED. Since I live in the Harrisburg, PA area I see him about once a year. He's very kind & understa...
