Re: Update, Funny but True

Eefall - you mention your son has his own medical problems and very possibly that's as much as he can cope with.
Unfortunately, as parents, we are often on the receiving end.
Good luck in your new employment (ridiculous wage earner that you are :clap: )

Re: Melatonin

Legs -- my Ferritin is up around 180 and has always been pretty good. And yes, absolutely, I would wean, just how quickly to wean is another matter. I will most likely write to Dr B in this regard. Certainly control is not particularly good at present, symptoms have been with me all day despite medi...

Re: New to group.

Do you mean Unisom..... It is an antihistamine. An antihistamine might make you drowsy but it is also likely to annoy your RLS symptoms. Many people who take the antihistamine diphenhydramine in allergy medications (such as Benadryl) or in sleep aids (such as Unisom or Tylenol PM) don’t realize that...

Re: Update, Funny but True

Well done, you wondered how you would manage financially in retirement, just shows we never know what is around the corner. Fortunately if you decide that you prefer to be not working, you now know that you can manage. I wonder if your son was to read some case histories of folks with RLS would he h...

Re: Melatonin

Beth, thank you. Yes, to wean or not to wean.... I think probably wean as I am on 4mg Ropinerole daily, even though this I feel, will stretch out the coming off period. If they recommend an AC, What is an AC ? Prepare a plan of action with all relevant documentation and backup from Dr B. Proceed wit...

Re: Melatonin

Maybe it's time to face the augmentation Badnights - this is always in the back of my mind. Apart from being fearful of it, it seems impossible to find a time where my committments can be set to the side for a few weeks. Another aspect is how much support would be available from my GP. My tramadol ...
