Re: Issues feel insurmountable

Hi Deb, thanks. I remember reading a similar-feeling post from you awhile back I think. It does help to feel heard and understood. Yes, I'm trying too, I guess that's the good news. I mean, I take my dog for walks. I've been working on my airway issues. Although I haven't been successful in cutting ...

Re: Not-so-friendly remimder re unmedicated PMLS

Steve, I'm glad you figured out what it was and were able to get some rest! I hope the symphony was fun. I don't think my issue was withdrawal, but you have given me something to keep in mind...maybe it was? But I don't think so because that's how I felt when I first started seeing my sleep doc, and...

Issues feel insurmountable

The PMLS has pushed me over the edge in the last year. My health concerns feel insurmountable, and I don't remember feeling like this in my life before (except when I had c diff for 2 months. :roll: But even that was different because that was very much an acute issue). But the PMLS...this thing is ...

Re: Moving Mayhem

OMG, did the AirBnB guest steal your furniture?! Will they compensate you for the theft?

I'm glad you and hubby went to the ER and glad he didn't need immediate surgery. What a nightmare though!

Don't forget to breathe!!!

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

So wait, you gave the pharmacy the research and then your doctor who was prescribing the medication for you fired you?! Bizarre. And awful.

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

One of the RLS specialists - Dr Becker, IIRC - once told us at an RLS conference that it was about 7% that get addicted and that this was controlling the other 93%'s access. That is tame to what happened next with the effing doctor. It is on here somewhere - from about 2007 or 2008. Ultimately, she...

Not-so-friendly remimder re unmedicated PMLS

Last night I didn't medicate myself because I had a wine cooler with a late dinner and wasn't sure how long it would take to clear. Woke up exhausted, agitated, that feeling of having one raw nerve left, wanting to cry, no emotional fortitude to handle anything, and with restless legs. Awful. I took...

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

That is fantastic, Ann!!! So glad to know you're feeling better. Gives me hope. I did that with a close friend recently. I sent her an email and said I wasn't available to talk for awhile and that I wasn't cutting her out on purpose; I just couldn't stand to hear my own negativity. Quite a bit of it...

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Yes! What kind of work did you do? I think it was easier for me when I was younger, although I struggled then too. I think my PMLS wasn't as bad then, or at least my body was better able to compensate for poor sleep quality. Similarly to how when you're young, your vision might not be perfect, but y...

Re: Process for going to a Referral Center

Ladyslider, good luck to you! I'm going through a similar situation. I hope you can get the help you need quickly. I know how awful it can be. It can be hard to take the step to go to a specialist, at least it was for me. So good for you for doing that! I've been posting on this subject a lot recent...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

I have stories CVS and Walgreens that would curl your toes, including the time Walgreens made ME prove that opioids are used to treat RLS. With studies. Thanks to this site and Dr. B, I had them, but seriously?????? In the meantime, I had to wait until they read them and felt it appropriate to fill...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

I think the next time the pharmacy says something dumb to me, I'm going to preface my reply sweetly with, "Thanks for sharing that..." :lol: One of the things my current sleep doctor said to me this past visit was, 'There's nothing more I can do for you without getting you hooked on opioid...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

Betty, your way of triple checking is a good idea. I've done similar in the past and have relaxed a bit about it recently--wrong choice apparently. Ann, that's freaking ridiculous about the studies! Wow. I pay out of pocket for my opioid because my insurance won't let me fill 90 days at a time witho...

Another dumb pharmacy trip

I went to Costco today to pick up my opioid rx. [You may recall last time I went to Costco pharmacy I ended up in tears because they had to call my doctor and my doctor wasn't in...it was eventually solved.] Anyway, today I was turned away. The lady said I picked up the last rx on August 7 (wrong! i...
