Kris, I feel the same way about the commercials as you do about the sites, even though my RLS is milder than some here. :roll: Like they want it to be a big enough annoyance you'll try their drugs, but not much beyond that. Also, has anyone else noticed that just watching the ads gives you heeby-jee...

Vanessa, I've not taken medications for my RLS, so I can't speak from experience. But I know that several of the main RLS medicines have potential problems. I don't remember which thing means "it gets worse after it gets better for a while" but look in the Pharmaceutical section of this forum for di...

Jannie...sheets hurting

Jannie (and anyone else whose RLS makes the sheets feel uncomfortable on your feet)-- Was looking at one of the big pile of catalogs I start getting this time of year, and saw something and said to myself, "Hey, maybe some RLSer might be able to use that!" Not a cure for anything, of course, but may...

More on Tyrosine

Hello, Ed-- You can find the original tyrosine discussion (which was quite lengthy, as I recall) by searching for all posts from "Robin-Whittle" I think. Ann is right, it was here on this section of the forum, and I'm thinking maybe a year and a half ago? In the meantime, you can view a later revisi...

Article: dopamine agonists

Wasn't sure if anyone else had seen/posted this article. It's about sleepiness in patients taking dopamine agonists.

Hi, CC and welcome-- Sorry you have RLS, but glad that you're here for information and support. Just wanted to say briefly, I'm 40, have had it at least since my teens, too, and also have not been to a doctor. I have very classic symptoms, there's no question what this is. I don't think I need to se...

Hmmm, Becat.... I wonder if anyone else is like me, and doesn't really REMEMBER what they wrote last year? Can't think if it's "changed" or not. :lol: Everyone else..... If you've NOT done this, PLEASE do. Simple and short, or verbose (like mine probably was! :lol: ).... doesn't matter. The Q of L i...

Hey, welcome, "Ack". Your ceremonial first post was well done. :lol: Sorry you have RLS, but at least glad you found out what it was relatively young. I know I had it in my late teens, probably earlier (I had some sleep problems, too), but I didn't happen to hear about it until in my 30s. There are ...

PS... Kitty You're not stupid or weak. You're at your wit's end to deal with this. Anyone who could blame you for feeling as you do has NO idea what this condition does to our lives. And please be careful with xanax and stuff like that. Some of them work great for some people, but they can also have...

Hi, Kitty... Glad last night was better. I know you're having a tough time, and you're right... one of the things that I think is most difficult about RLS is that so many times, the worst times are at night, when you're exhausted and alone... because everyone who might be willing to support you in o...

Hi, Penguin-- I've not had to do a lot of really long driving trips, but I'll often do 4-5 hours in a day (life in the sticks, long drive anywhere :lol: ). From my experience, doing those trips as driver vs. passenger, driver is MUCH better, for me. I also find it helps if I start earlier than later...

Hi, Paul-- and welcome to the forums! I think it's safe to say that there's definitely hope. I've had RLS most of my life, but am not being treated for it, yet. From what I know from hanging around with the nice folks here, though, a sleep study is a good first step. I'll be hoping for you to get th...

Hi, Jesse, and add my welcome to the other ladies so far! Glad you'll be seeing a neuro; sounds like you could use some help and relief. I can't recall if Effexor is a drug that's supposed to be "RLS friendly" or and "RLS foe"... but anti-d's and anti-a's are often notorious for being tough on RLS a...
