Thanks, Ann! My bad! That's what we're here for, right? What's life without chocolate or ice cream. I think this definitely deserves a QOL statement!

I think this is at least partially applicable - in Dr. B.'s book, he names ice cream as the only food that has been shown in some studies to worsen RLS, exactly because of gluten. It seems to speak to your theory. Welcome an good luck with continued success!

Well, if it makes you all feel better - my bh said he should have gotten me a helmet for V Day after reading in the material we were given at the hospital that some people with really bad seizures have to have helmets. Isn't that romantic? Really, we had both planned to do our shopping on Valentine'...

Update - After my ER trip, I was told that I could not drive until I saw my GP. Well, I had my appointment today. The verdict? I still cannot drive. My doctor is handing me - lock, stock and barrel - to a neurologist. Not just seizure stuff, but RLS stuff, too. I have an appointment on Tuesday. I st...

What a treasure you are, Ruby-girl! I was sitting hear all set to enter into another sleepless or at lest restless night - feeling sorry for myself and the whole kaboodle - and I actually smiled and felt my heart lift for a moment. The beauty of our board comes not only the times when we share our w...

Thank you all for your kind words and encouragment. I am doing alright. It's kind of depressing to be stuck in the house and not be able to do what I want to do, but these things happen. I am going through a little bit of withdrawal as I stop Ultram cold turkey. I was given Lortab at the ER to offse...

Last night at around midnight, I had my first every seizure. Luckily I was with my boyfriend and he thought fast, called 911, put me on my side while I vomited and we waited for the ambulance. I was rushed to the hospital. I regained some of my consciousness in the ambulance and was told I had had a...

Susan, I am so sorry that you are suffering so. I know what it's like to go night after night without good sleep. It's enough to make you crazy. You are still on a low dose and it might just take some time to find the dose you need. I know with Neurontin I had to increase every three days until I go...

Em, You remain on my mind and in my heart. I will hold you especially close as your surgery date arrives and you enter into the recovery period. Make sure you are clear with the doctors about your condition so that they use the right anesthesia, meds, etc. Crying is okay. We all do it. We try to kee...

I know I've mentioned it before, but in case anybody missed it - we cannot take antihistamines, but antacids can work when you have bad itching. I had a reaction to a medicine that was causing me to claw myself at night in my sleep. I would literally wake up bleeding. My doctor suggested I take eith...
