Re: Severity of RLS/WED?

I consider myself to have severe RLS. My symptoms are 24/7 and I take medication 24/7 which does not always cover the symptoms. Any sedentary time has to be thought about in advance i.e. theater, movies, restaurant, air flights. With my husband on my last 11 hour flight I was highly medicated, over ...

Re: Vacation and RLS

I feel this poem expresses very vividly how mean RLS can be..... Hi my name is restless legs. I am invisible to others. They can’t see me or hear me but YOUR body feels me. I can keep you awake until you're exhausted. Remember when you had energy? In its place I have given you exhaustion. If you hav...

Re: Vacation and RLS

Oozz ---- Ahh.... and there we come to another difficulty. Trying to describe RLS to a non sufferer. Beyond understanding. If I am suffering and need to get up and move about I do so, often just saying ""you must excuse me as I have a movement disorder and walking/stretching may give me te...

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Hmmm... It's like, when in a bad place you expect nothing of yourself, don't expect wonderment.
And then things aren't so bad and its..... oh Yay.... this is ok. It's still ok. Oh... its' not ok, why did I think it could be ok

EeFall - Know the type of bowls you mean - I've seen some beautiful glass bowls on metal stands but practicality stepped. They would have been (accidentally) subjected to footballs and all sorts in our garden.

Re: What Relationships?

Yes, dh's shoulder should heal ok. Today he is just using paracaetamol and not cocodamol, but didn't make any moves towards working with the pallets, thank goodness. The centre of Storm Ophelia is just over N. Ireland now, 7.30 ish pm, and it's to be rough for a few hours. 50 years since there was a...

Re: What Relationships?

deb - getting him to the doctor is nigh near impossible. Yesterday his plan for today was to start building a wooden box out of old pallets. This box will hold a concrete plinth which in turn will hold a concrete bowl containing a solar water feature - it's just a bubbling of water a few inches high...

Re: What Relationships?

Parts of my limbs are certainly demonic !! Last night my dh couldn't sleep well because of a sore shoulder which has been lingering for several days. I have raging cold symptoms since yesterday, stuffed up nose, headache, and am surrounded by nasal sprays, balm tissues (although I find an old towel ...

Re: What Relationships?

deb - Every so often this fear of being confined comes to my mind. It is the makings of horrors.

I wonder if, many many years ago, we would have been considered as 'possessed by demons' ??
Just a thought.

Re: Vacation and RLS

I have heard of RLS sufferers having a change in symptoms according to altitude, be it where they live or where they visit/holiday. High altitude having a negative effect on the RLS symptoms.

Indeed we do understand - it's one thing being up all hours with insomnia - and quite another matter when it's because symptoms just won't give over !!
I know which I prefer.
