Re: Low-Sulfur Diet

Actually, for veg and fruit, I have only been eating cucumber, carrot, celery, tomato, and apple. I added zucchini today. Even if low sulfur works for me, I'm not confident there still aren't one-off food intolerances so for now I'm taking it slow. As far as long term, I haven't thought about it muc...

Low-Sulfur Diet

Hi everybody. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been experimenting with a low-sulfur diet. I’m not 100% sure this will last, but I’ve had remarkable results. Even though it’s preliminary, I want to share what I’ve found, in case it can help someone else. After tracking what I eat and how I sleep fo...

Re: Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

That's disappointing Betty...I'll just step up my purchases to cover your difference. :wink: Ann, it's taken me a few times to remember to sign in to Smile, and not the regular Amazon, and every time I missed I'm like dagnabbit! But the disappointment makes me remember now! So now I'm reminding my h...

Re: Gabapentin vs Horizant

Thanks Steve & Stainless...

Does anyone out there know...I'm wondering if the duration is different or the same for Horizant vs. Gabapentin? I'm always looking for ways to get more sleep.

Re: Gabapentin vs Horizant

I take 200mg Gabapentin (30 mins before bed), and am thinking of asking my neurologist for a small trial of Horizant to see how they compare. Does anyone have experience with both of these medications...Is there anything I should be aware of? I'm wondering what the sleep duration is for Gabapentin v...

Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

:D Hi Everyone, I just discovered that we can contribute to the RLS Foundation through our purchases at Amazon. It's at no cost to us , and an easy way to help the RLS Foundation do the great work they do. I've already contributed 76 cents! LOL...but if we all work together... -If you're interested,...

Re: First night of methadone

Thanks for sharing the fermented process Beth...I buy a local product that has shredded carrots with ginger and it's absolutely delicious. The other combo that's really good is cabbage with caraway seeds. I spoke to the owner and she passed on this wisdom...never double dip into the product because ...

Re: Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

However, with that said, I got the impression that the idea would be brought up at the next advisory board meeting. But that was mostly me reading between the lines that they didn't want to make any promises of getting it onto the agenda. Steve, thanks for the clarification and moving this forward ...

Re: Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

Beth, before I read your response, I consulted with my husband about the Foundation's response (he has 25 year's experience in IT), and he said the same thing as you. Here's an idea...Maybe the Foundation could encourage a pilot program at just one of the Quality Care Centers? Is it worth suggesting...

Re: Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

That's a really great idea. In the last few years I've had several doctors, an OBGYN and a functional medicine doc, and a I think a few others, tell me that they don't understand RLS, but if an expert were to prescribe a plan for me then they'd fill the prescriptions. I love the idea of everyone bei...

Re: Crocheting!

You know, vomited yarn could be very Pollack :-). LOL that made me snort laugh...visually it does resemble a Pollock, and conceptually an Andres Serrano. I just want him to use the litter box but you know how artists can be. At the risk of hijacking this thread for discussing non-artistic activitie...

Re: Crocheting!

There is something special about yarn...I have a bucket of it that I bought years ago for craft projects and it's so aesthetically pleasing to look at. Recently, I had to remove the yarn to a tall furniture piece to keep it out of my cat's way. He was pulling it out and I'd find the most interesting...
