Re: Neupro and Anxiety

Yes, I have had only 1 brief attack since I last posted. I think that being up all night with symptoms vs anxiety I would choose being up all night. But, maybe I won't need to decided. Hopefully that was a side effect that has come and gone. Thanks for your concern.

Re: Neupro and Anxiety

Steve, I have messaged my doctor. I'm leaving the patch off tonight to see if there is a difference.

Neupro and Anxiety

I have been on the Neupro Patch, 1mg every 24 hours, for close to a month with great success. I am starting to wake up with anxiety attacks during the night and also experienced them during the day. I had this reaction while on Ropinirole. I am wondering if anyone else has had this side-effect?

Re: refractory rls and psoriasis relationship

I have plaque psoriasis on my scalp. I've had it for about 10 years. It absolutely can drive me crazy along with not being able to wear dark shirts.

Re: Oils

I have tired several oils using a diffuser. They smell nice but I haven't seen any effect on my RLS. I have a sweet daughter-in-law who is quite knowledgeable on this subject and she has tried several combinations to no avail. The best I can say is that I found them to be comforting.

Re: RLS Patient Symposium

I was without a stash until recently. I am on oxycodone 7.5/3.25 that I take midday. I found that I often was taking it also at 4:00am because of pain and rls. My PA prescribed enough for me to take 2 a day if needed so now I am building up a small stash. I feel better having that. I helped me throu...

Re: Back Surgery and RLS plus spasms

I hope this surgery is successful and the recovery is not as difficult as you anticipate. As for the spinal problems connected to RLS: I have had a bulging disk in my L4&5. I originally went to pain management for this but RLS developed also. My neurosurgeon says that their is a connection betwe...

Re: RLS and Alcohol remedies....?

I will have a very small amount of red wine at dinner. This happens maybe once a month. I don't notice any change in my symptoms. Occasionally, when I am having a very bad night I will have a "wee dram" of good single malt scotch with a bit of water. I don't know what it does for my physic...

Re: RLS Patient Symposium

I was at the symposium also and had my daughter take notes. As soon as she types them up I'll be able to add to this conversation. One item I found disturbing also is #5. I was surprised that these experts didn't have much input on the suicide issue. If they could read the stories on this forum and ...

Re: How long have you had RLS/WED

I had RLS intermittently from around 40 years of age. Usually I would get it on long flights. I didn't know there was a name for this. My mom had it in her later years and took Xanax for it. About 3 years ago I started having a problem with pain in my left knee. I was on hydrocodone for that but it ...

Re: Need Sleep

I'll discuss that with this doctor.
I was able to get a sleep study next Wednesday.

Re: Need Sleep

The sleep doctor knows RLS very well. I was so pleased with his knowledge. I don't have slight sleep apnea, actually it is severe at different times during the early morning hours. He is concerned and will do a sleep study with a c-pap machine in the lab. We talked about medications and he understan...

Re: Need Sleep

Today I finally have an appointment with a sleep doctor. There is only one in our area and it has taken since April to get in with him. I hope he has some suggestions as to how to get more sleep. I have slight sleep apnea so he will be addressing that. I'm hoping he is familiar with RLS!

Re: RLS Foundation hosting a Patient Symposium

I probably wouldn't be going but for the fact that I needed to see Dr. Poceta for a follow-up appointment at this time. When I saw the symposium was at the same time I decided to take advantage of the opportunity. Plus we will get to spend time with one of our 4 sons and his family who live in San D...
