Re: Opioid Interview on TV

Great point badnights!

When I say pain I'm thinking of the paper that described how itching, electrical sensations, etc are considered a form of pain.

But I'm sure the news wasn't making that distinction.

Re: More negative news on opioids

Totally hear you. I'm on that med! I'd verify it with other sources though; I have some questions about that source's integrity.

Re: Opioid Interview on TV

Steve, yes. And even their tone of voice.

I did discover a bias when I thougjt about it...every time they report on the "opioid crisis" they don't have a dissenting opinion, but yet they felt obligated to "balance" your perspective with Mr. Doctor Authority Figure.

Re: Opioid Interview on TV

Great interview!!! And not too horribly biased coverage by the news (that's the most I'll give any news these days). :lol: A lot of time they subtly undermine the interviewee but I thought they were respectful to you.

Re: Mental RLS triggers

Laughing triggers it for me. Mildly, but consistently. Also, thinking about it can trigger it (trying to describe it, for instance). Just focusing my attention on my ankles or wrists will trigger it (when it starts up, those places are where it spreads out from). Wow. RLS is definitely a neurologic...

Re: Progress with my local doctor?

The other thing I am so disturbed by is how many people I know who buy all that crap and don't have critical thinking skills.

Amazing, Steve!!! I hope you can get a cc of the clip and post a link? We need an opioid march! :lol: Or a pain control march, in any case. Yes to your comments re cigarettes and alcohol. I think I remember reading that there are more suicides annually than opioid ODs. Where's the "suicide cris...

So well said. It really is.

Feel that I'm waiting for either success or professional embarrassment.

Re: New med

Thanks. I was also thinking about taking the trazodone first then the opioid. Trazodone puts me to sleep so right before maybe take the other pill before it gets into my bloodstream and alerts me. Opioid is so short lasting if I took it earlier feels like benefits wouldn't cover all night. What a me...

Yeah especially since he's a great doctor.

That's why I was cracking a grin...the dark humor! I am going to have to give costco a cc of Dr B's new opioid article.

Re: Hoping for a better night

Hope it gets better.

I don't notice substance triggers for my RLS/PMLS, but I'd be surprised if I didn't have them.

I have been noticing that caffeine tends to worsen or trigger my jaw, back, and hip pain. Maybe due to dehydration or inflammation. It's not good.

Mental RLS triggers

So. I just learned that my RLS doesn't like reading about Alzheimer's Disease. Nor does it like reading about Narcicisstic Parents :lol: (a little too close to home I guess). It doesn't like boredom. It doesn't like anxiety. It doesn't like long flights or concerts... I think there was a post about ...

Re: Happy New Year! & checking in

Thanks all. Yes it is. Still a bit concerned as there are a few more hoops to jump through before I am allowed to start. There is a 2 part acceptance process. 1) They want to hire you (check!) 2) Your background is fully vetted and you are given the handshake. I am on step 2 maybe for another month ...
