Melatonin

I tried to find a starting post, but couldn't find one, so I guess I'll start one. You would think that melatonin would help, right? In theory, it sounds great. My experience though, is quite the opposite. I've tried it many times. Boy, does it make my symptoms worse. Especially with periodic limb m...

Just a rant

I'm getting ready to sleep now. I pray that I can have a good nights sleep. I'm so tired during the daytime because of my rls and plmd. I just want to be knocked out so I can sleep. Can't the medical field find an answer to this problem? Many people have it, and I truly have compassion for them, bec...

Re: Plms?

I hope so my friend. So many people suffer with the these two afflictions, that you would think there would be more research. Maybe there is. I certainly hope so. For the ones that have this, I know that they would like some relief. I don't even want to think of the people that couldn't take it anym...

Plmds?

Maybe I don't have rls, or maybe both. My legs get a slight cramp, every 28 seconds or so, just as I'm falling asleep. It makes it difficult to fall asleep when that is happening. The muscle? Moves on it own, and kind of tickles. But it is relentless. I feel the need to move my leg. In your opinion,...

Re: Niacin 100mg.

Thanks for all if your replies. With me, just like with my legs, kind of a creepy feeling that makes me want to move it, it happens with my arm. Not often though, thank God. It's the same feeling. I have severe spine problems, and I use oxycodone. From my pain management. It is a miracle for me. If ...

Please be happy that you DO have a relationship.

Re: Latest on TENS Unit Use for Nighttime Symptoms

I use a Twin Stim Plus. You need a prescription. But they sell them online for less than $150 US. It's a decent one, and not a toy like they sell to the general public in the drug stores. I can't say it helped me, but I used the pads on my legs, feet, and thighs. I bought it for my spine, and I plac...

Re: Latest on TENS Unit Use for Nighttime Symptoms

I get maybe 15 uses from mine. I use alcohol to remove the oils on my skin, then when I'm finished. I apply them back on the plastic they came on originally. Never thought to keep them in the fridge.

Re: Niacin 100mg.

No, not during the day, only starts during that "twilight " time falling asleep, and upon awakening. That is, if I can ever get to sleep. I don't know what happens when I finally fall asleep. As I am single. At times I pace around the house then go back to bed. Whe worse times is when it i...

Niacin 100mg.

I use with some success. I use the kind that DOES give you the slight flushing effect. I think this is why it helps. It gives me kind if a pin pricking sensation in different parts of my body at random. You know when we are having the RLS, we are always thinking of that part of our body, and hoping ...

Re: allergy nasal spray question

I have used a nasal spray that has an active ingredient called Oxymetazoline hydrochloride. For me, it made my RLS a thousand times worse before I came to the conclusion that it was making me much more worse than I would ever have expected. There is an article somewhere, where a man was given it int...

Just joined

After reading much here, I felt compelled to join. Hello to all, and I pray that someday
There is a cure. It's a terrible disease, and it seems no one cares except we, who have it.
Someday I hope that changes. Thank you for having me.
