Re: Kratom berry compote

The worst part of it all is feeling judged and getting looked at askance when I am just trying to get a decent night's sleep! Something millions of people take for granted every night. Leggo, I may have missed this but have you considered going to a Quality Care Center? You deserve to be treated wi...

Re: Medical Marijuana

…Recently I went for about 10 days with great sleep, then the last 2 nights have been difficult. What I don't get, is why it works one time, and another time the exact same thing doesn't work at all! It's frustrating, but I keep a positive attitude. Each night as I get into bed I just am convinced ...

Re: reflections on a bad trip to the RLS specialist

Would you call the muscle popping fasciculations? When I have had them, they feel very strange. Ann, I would call them fasciculations, but the country girl part of me calls them muscle poppers, muscle jumpers, and fish floppers. I have them everywhere and weird places like my scalp (no muscles here...

Re: reflections on a bad trip to the RLS specialist

I've also started experimenting by mixing in some THC oil from indica plants...I also felt a strange popping sensation in my muscles the first time I tried it, and had greater RLS symptoms that night. I intend to try again on a night where I have nothing on the next day, should I have the same expe...

Re: Vulnerable

Leggo, if you want to try some herbal stuff...a tea made from the herb thyme can dry mucous membranes and relax bronchial spasms. You can put fresh sprigs of thyme in boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Add a bag of mint tea to make it taste better. And then eat a chocolate cupcake (cupcakes make everyt...

LOL, Legsbestill has a special way with words for sure!

Betty, your hair sounds lovely! Also, loved your description of the entire process. You too have a way with words...is that something in the Irish water?!

Love everyone's stories...

Re: Vulnerable

Leggo, you're not alone in your misery, anxiety, worry, anger, frustration, and sadness. Forgive me if I attribute an emotion here that doesn't apply but these are the feelings I'd have if going through what you described. And I have had very similar experiences. I've gone through weeks where I wond...

Re: Estrogen and RLS

Linli, I'm so sorry the relief stopped. This may not relate to you but I've noticed that when I change something like diet, or add in a new supplement or medication, that I'll have an improvement for a few days or more and then I eventually go back to my normal or even have worse symptoms. Almost li...

Re: Lonliness

Betty, another vote for putting a streak in your hair. Or many streaks! Maybe we all should??? As far as glasses go, I have many because I have horrible eyesight. But a few years back I decided to make the most of it and whenever I get a new pair I go bold in some way. My favorite is a cat eye shape...

Re: Muscle Relaxants

Ann, I'm going to look into a foam roller. My muscles are usually so tender but maybe this is what I need. My husband treated himself to a massage chair from Costco recently and thinks it's the cat's pajamas. Every time I use it it hurts. But I've had some nights of better sleep afterward so maybe t...

Muscle Relaxants

I tried the muscle relaxant Baclofen/Lioresal last night and it helped me sleep very well. I learned about it on Dr Buchfuhrer's website as an option for treating PLMD/PLMs. But this morning I noticed cramping that started in the bottoms of my feet and then slowly moved up my legs. It's now at my hi...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Ladies, when cooking the CBN treated bud(s) in the crock pot covered with oil, is there a significant MJ smell?... Hi Steve, Sorry about your side effects. To answer your question and then some... My first cannabutter experiments were with THC and the smell was so strong that I moved the setup out ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

NatWest, I'm so glad you have found a solution, actually several of them! Especially since you've recently been through such a rough patch of bad sleep. I think that's one of the many great things about cannabis, there's always something else to try...yay cannabis! Pinkynose, I'm impressed at how yo...
