Re: Energy Saving Products & Hacks

Ann & Betty, I thought the brushes and application were kind of garish when I first saw them but then I read the reviews of Amazon customers and I was convinced to buy them. Out of all my household chores, scrubbing things has become the task I least want to do and my bathtub shows it. Well it u...

Energy Saving Products & Hacks

I’m always looking for hacks for household chores because my energy isn’t what it used to be, from lack of sleep. I found something so incredible that I had to share it with you all. It’s a scrub brush that attaches to your cordless drill, and you can use it to more easily clean your bathtub, shower...

Re: Emergency Room Nightmare

Steve, I’m horrified by what happened to you. I know we all are. The only bright light that I can see in this is that your horrific experience is a cautionary tale for all of us here and we can learn from it to protect ourselves. I’m so sorry it happened though. I hope you know that everyone here su...

Re: Vitamin D3- when’s the best time to take it?

Frunobulax raises two important points...our responses to supplements and medications are highly individual, and you can find a study to justify any opinion. Google searches turn up results for both experiences. It’s probably best that we experiment, and observe our own reactions.

Vitamin D3- when’s the best time to take it?

I recently read an article that explained how important it was to take Vitamin D3 in the morning. I can’t find the article anymore but here was it’s main point...the closer you take vitamin D3 to bed, the worse your sleep. It was recommended you take it before you even get out of bed in the morning....

Re: Medical Marijuana

Wantok, your form of RLS/PLMD seems very similar to mine. You mention using THCA successfully and that it’s tempermental because it easily degrades. Have you tried CBN (for anyone thinking I meant to type CBD, I didn’t :wink: )? I haven’t tried just THCA and am wondering how it helps/controls your P...

Re: Infusion #3

I noticed that Holland had recent IV iron infusions and sent him some questions about it. He kindly answered my million questions. We both recognized the discussion might be beneficial on the main forum so here are the highlights... ME: I’m wondering if an iron infusion is helpful for cases like min...

Re: Characteristics of PLMD/PLMs

LOL, you made me laugh Steve. I despise doing sit-ups so maybe I was secretly hoping this dreaded disease would be doing me a favor? So to confirm (because I obviously get confused)…PLMD/PLMs occur only in the legs, and has to be a repetitive movement? Does the movement always look the same as in a ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

...Anyway, I hope this isn't too confusing. This way I don't have to get up, since I keep it on the table beside the bed. I think you could also add water, tea, or juice if the caffein doesn't work for you. That’s a good idea Peggy...I’m continually tweaking my procedures as well as I try to figure...

Characteristics of PLMD/PLMs

I’m wondering if people here could please help me by describing the characteristics of PLMD/PLMs beyond “involuntary movements during sleep”? For instance, I’ve heard it can occur in the torso area and wonder what that means. I don’t understand everywhere that it can occur in the body, and what is c...

Re: Prescription Savings $$$

That’s so great Betty...wish we had that here in the US. Holland, have you seen the manufacturer’s savings program? Years ago I couldn’t afford a very expensive prescription so I checked out the manufacturer’s website and they had discount coupons that helped immensely. https://injectafer.com/cost-a...

Prescription Savings $$$

I just learned about GoodRX.com and RXSaver.RetailMeNot.com...they really work, I saved substantial money at my pharmacy on my last prescription renewal. On one prescription alone I saved $45. I presented coupons from both websites, for each medication, and my pharmacy only accepted one of the compa...

Re: best iron suppliment to increase ferritin levels?

My GP has offered me iron injections but I asked Dr Buchfuhrer about them and he does not favour them. Can’t remember why but it sounded plausible. A member of a UK forum uses iron patches that she imports from the US and her serum ferritin has increased considerably. PatchMD is the site she buys t...

Re: best iron suppliment to increase ferritin levels?

My stomach’s sensitivity changes from day to day but I didn’t really take notice of this until recently. I’m getting better sleep so I’m more aware of things which is not always a blessing, lol. I had been taking 3 iron pills for over a year and all of a sudden it started hurting my stomach. So I lo...
