Re: What’s working for me

I was having the 2 hour wake up BEFORE is started taking Advil PM. As it is said, medications affect everyone differently, so I'm not totally convinced that the Diphenhydramine is affecting me in a negative way, although it does help me fall asleep. The effect of drugs is highly variable. I had two...

Re: 54 years Dealing with RLS

So we have fiddled with Diet... that seems to be helping... Fresh greens (not Lettuce) but cooked spinach, green beans , Celery , Broccoli, Quinoa, with lemon juice and herbs... Its very yummy. So much can be done with diet. Paleo, Wahl's, Atkins, all these diets can help, they are fairly similar a...

Jesus. This is torture, just terrible. I'm at loss for words, frankly.
I sincerely hope that you'll get at least some financial compensation out of this. Too bad that the doctors probably don't have to pay that out of their wages.

Re: Melatonin, 5-HTP, GABA &L-Theanine

I purchased Natural Sleep-Aid with Melatonin (5mg), 5-HTP (25 mg), GABA (50 mg) & L-Theanine (30 mg), Before starting using, I tried to check on the GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) as I do not want to take anything that will worsen my RLS. I was using THC, but I ran out it is not legal where I l...

Re: Flaxseed oil

Seriously, you must be trolling for attention [...] You basically wasted another wall of text agreeing with what you were objecting to. [...] More straw man arguments, kind of a 'I know better than you' toned hostility, cherry picking data for confirmation and optimism bias, conspiracy theories, as...

Re: Flaxseed oil

Flaxseed oil doesn’t have as many benefits as other omega-3 sources like fish, fish oil, and flax in its seed form. The use of flax seeds or flaxseed oil may result in lowered blood sugar. Consuming flaxseed oil may lower your blood pressure. The use of flax seeds may increase your chances of bleed...

Re: Flaxseed oil

" I mostly disagree with everything you post and the usual straw man arguments. " isn't exactly helpful. So my last post was probably more agressive than it should have been. Still, in all our conversations you haven't brought up a single link to a source, study or a scientific argument. I...

Yeah, I don't usually respond to your posts as all the information I state is always very easily found, I mostly disagree with everything you post and the usual straw man arguments. The information that the earth is flat and covid-19 is no worse than seasonal influenza are easily found too. Doesn't...

Re: Flaxseed oil

Flaxseed oil has ALA and "The main problem with ALA is that to have the good effects attributed to omega-3s, it must be converted by a limited supply of enzymes into EPA and DHA. As a result, only a small fraction of it has omega-3's effects — 10%–15%, maybe less." Source? This is only pa...

Re: Flaxseed oil

Can you take it in pill or capsule form? If so, would it still be effective? There are two things in flaxseed oil that may be beneficial. You can get both as capsules. However, you may have to take a LOT of capsules to achieve the same effect. 1. Polyphenols. This is stuff that our "good"...

Flaxseed oil

Has anyone else observed a relation between flaxseed oil and a reduction of snoring and/or RLS symptoms? Thought I should share this, maybe somebody else benefits. Something very curious happened to me. After starting to consume large quantities of flaxseed oil I virtually stopped snoring. Weird. An...

Re: RLS and toxins / fasting

That makes sense, the release of stored toxins is a real thing. I think :) The brain iron deficiency would be a contributor. Not sure what exact mechanism, but something the brain does (that requires iron) is critical to toxin removal. Not such a far-fetched idea. The accumulated evidence that iron...

RLS and toxins / fasting

I've noticed a new pattern for my RLS that I'd like to share. I started the occasional fasting for 48h. I usually eat one meal a day and will just leave out one day, maybe once or twice per week in order to combat metabolic syndrome. Usually 20mg oxycodone a day (10mg around noon, 10mg in the evenin...

Re: Gabapentin--Lyrica?

Only the reverse for me. Lyrica caused depressions, Gabapentin was fine. (Wasn't able to control my RLS though.)

Re: Diet

I may give the keto diet another try....I just can't use the sweeteners, so that would be hard. I have a sweet tooth! Stay away from sugar alcohols. Have you tried stevia, inulin and monkfruit? I also have issues with xylitol and erythrol, but I can tolerate those. But you'll need only minimal amou...
