Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

Finding that orgasm gives relief from RLS symptoms is something that has been mentioned previously on this Discussion Board. I would find that the symptoms only get kicked into touch for about 10 minutes. Others have found that relief lasts long enough for them to get over to sleep. If you put orgas...

Re: Gabapenten used thru the night

I don't use gabapentin but I do use this method with my ropinerole. I take a dose at 9pm and then a smaller dose at about 3am. If I don't do this I will have symptoms at around 5am.

Re: Very Tired

I am counting my blessings that I don't have PLMs. Statistics show that quite a high number of RLS Sufferers also have PLMs.
My husband confirms that I don't do any kicking during sleep.
