Re: Need help for mom

... her doctor, in Montana, is now going to slowly take her off the Methadone and try something else. I am not sure what. I will meet with him when I go to Montana next week. I want to make sure he knows something about RLS.

Thanks,
Tammy

Re: Need help for mom

Hi All, It is now 2019 an update on my mom. She has been on Methadone since May of 2014. The good is the RLS is gone or controlled and hiding.

In March I talked with Susan at RLS.org, Southern California RLS Support Group, she told me about Dr. Mark Buchfuhrer and his extensiv...

Re: Need help for mom

Hi Ann,
Yes, I did find the specialist on this site. We will keep that in mind when we make the appointment. We will have a list of questions and also find out how long they have been treating WED patients etc..

Re: Need help for mom

Thank you so much for your input. I like your thought about starting over but will make sure she does under the supervision of her current or a new RLS specialist. One day at a time!

Need help for mom

Hello and thank you for the welcome! I found this site to do some research for my dear mom who lives 1300 miles from me, wish I had a Lear jet! She is 72 and has suffered from this awful RLS for many years. A little history; as long as I can remember she has always had what she called "happy le...
