Re: I'm tired of fighting

Stockton - you have said that 'both your iron levels are normal'. Would one of these iron levels be your Serum Ferritin which is not normally tested in run of the mill bloodwork.

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Legs - The two bad evenings actually were the evenings and not during the night. (except for one last week that was an all nighter). Generally speaking, I'm happy to say the actual nighttimes have been improved since starting the Lyrica. I've ordered my next prescription at the same 150mg x 2 dosage...

Re: Describe your RLS symptoms

So difficult for me to describe the symptoms, no words seem to be accurate enough to adequately describe the torture. I can be sitting calmly reading and .... then there it is.... i don't know what 'it' is..... but it's a warning, a feeling but not a feeling, perhaps an intuition or an emotion, yes,...

Ah Yes, the disappearing notations..... If I think I'm going to be doing a long-ish post I sometimes type it up as a Word Document and then 'cut and paste' over to the discussion board.

Re: What Relationships?

wishful - There are many triggers for rls symptoms and alcohol is one such trigger. So your champagne and red wine could well be the culprit. And yes, a bad night after a quiet evening. Sometimes there appears to be no reasoning as to when symptoms play up more. Do bear in mind that, tobacco, sugar,...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Thank you QyX and Stjohnh. I've taken it down to 2.5mg these last couple of days. These last two evenings have had some uncontrollable symptoms tho this might be coincidence since it seems rather quick to have had a reaction to the reduction. I am very happy to have got this far without any major is...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again
