Didn’t know about those available spending reports...not sure I want to know, LOL! You’re right, Amazon saves so much time.

Re: Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

It's a shame that this doesn't apply to Amazon customers in the UK... Betty, are you suggesting you’re a big shopper? :wink: It would be great if UK Amazon customers had AmazonSmile. I always wonder how these things work, or in this case, don’t work. I’ve never been that much of a shopper and I dre...

Re: Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

I just checked in on my Amazon contributions to the RLS Foundation and got this update (please read in a newscaster voice)... - You have generated $22.21 as of January 9, 2018 - Your current charity Restless Legs Syndrome Foundation Inc has received $719.30 as of November 2017 (If you want, you can ...

Re: Potassium Citrate

I wonder if there is any kind of substantive difference between the OTC potassium citrate powder you used and the 10mEq pills I've received through prescription? Seems the only difference is the extended release part, so maybe it’s being broken down and absorbed in different areas. That’s as medica...

Re: Potassium Citrate

Rob, can you clarify...are you taking Citrate or Chloride? The link you provided refers to Chloride.

By chance, can you share the link to that YouTube video or videos? Thanks!

Also, what dosage of Potassium Citrate did you take during your trial?

Re: Potassium Citrate

Please feel free to ask away. Even though I'm lashing out at a couple of the mods, I'm actually a huge fan of a skeptical stance toward any claim, even and especially medical claims. I wouldn't expect anyone to believe me or to expect results based on one peer-reviewed study of n=68. I wouldn't eve...

Re: Potassium Citrate

Rob, thank you so much for sharing so that others can learn from your experience and possibly have the same outcome. I’m fascinated by your results and of course I have more questions (thanks for your patience)! Based on your reference to PLMD/S, I’m assuming you had PLMD/S and it has been alleviate...

Re: Potassium Citrate

Thank you for sharing with this board. Would you say there are differences in your response to potassium from food sources (like bananas or avocados), OTC supplements, and the Rx supplements? Also, your blood levels not changing, any explanation that you’ve found for this?

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...
