Re: I Think You Got Me Wrong...

This thread has been a real eye opener for me. I can relate to all of the posts and could have written most of them myself, and while it's a relief to know that I'm not crazy, I hate knowing that I'm not alone in this. Having become a recluse over the last four years after becoming unemployed and en...

Re: RLS and ADHD

Thank you for your reply. Having FM/CFS, major depressive disorder, type 2 diabetes, degenerative disk disease, asthma and other problems, I've tried more than my share of medications with mixed results. I'm highly allergic to some of the more typical medications (ibuprofen, Lyrica, Wellbutrin, Save...

Re: RLS and ADHD

Modafinil doesn't worsen WED. YAY! I take it sometimes (though my insurance company has recently refused to cover it - I can pay for it, of course). Thank you! That's good to know. May I ask what dose you take? My GP thought I should try an antipsychotic for sleep, Seroquel, a few months ago. I tri...

Re: RLS and ADHD

After reading and trying to comprehend everything in this thread, I've decided that I'm never going to go "cold turkey" off any of my medications. With the combination I'm on, I might end up in a straight jacket. As for WED/RLS and ADHD, I'd been wondering for some time if I didn't have A...

Re: RLS from head to toe!

The book sounds like a "must read" in my case. Thank you very much for recommending it to me. I'm sure my GP will be very open-minded and listen to my concerns. He's been great so far and we've had a good doctor/patient relationship since my move from the west coast seven years ago. The pa...

Re: RLS from head to toe!

Hello, Polar Bear, and thank you for your response. I've notice that many RLS sufferers also have fibro. My fibro had been in a sort of remission state until about 3 years ago when I was in a 4wheeler accident and broke my right hand, which was followed by an accident in my truck the day after havin...

RLS from head to toe!

Hi all. Recently joined here and will try to keep my history as brief as possible. I've had RLS for many years now and it's become a daily thing. It starts in the early evening and now begins in my shoulders and arms as well as my legs. The "creepy" feeling in my legs drives me nuts, but t...
