Re: What Calms You in the Night?

I play Solitaire on my Kindle while walking.
The worst is if my legs are exhausted and aching, so I really need to sit/lie down but also really need to walk.
It usually takes about 30/45 minutes.

Re: CBD oil

legsbestill - you are correct. It came to me in a flash, I came on line to edit my post and found you'd got there before me :) I think I was typing CBD and thinking Kratom....... That'll teach me not to do posting and trying to concentrate while standing at the computer and trying to dance off rls s...

Re: CBD oil

i haven't used the CBD oil. I did a google search and it appears to be that the Preparations are made in varied concentrations, so to speak of ' drops' doesn't tell what dose, or how many mgs you took. Is there an advice leaflet in your packaging, does it tell how to measure your CBD oil intake. Or ...

Re: gabapentin. 600mg. Tapering off

snodove3 - no need to apologise. We all understand how hard it can get. Especially when you are uncertain if you do, or do not, have a particular condition. This is a list of questions to help decide if you have RLS. The most important questions however are those in the post above of ViewsAskew. 1. ...

It is heartening to hear that your PCP and the nurse are understanding and willing.

Re: Intermittent Fasting

It totally makes sense. I hope my quip was not overstepping the mark and apologise if it did so. I was never a skinny child, not even near it but was 'OK'. Height is 5'6" and most of my teens and twenties I was a UK 14 -16, doing what I wanted and eating what I wanted. Those were the days of da...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Ann .... why keep some larger pieces 'just in case'... for a fat day, for a fat week/month.
You are a lady of determination. You won't need them. :clap:

Re: CELL PHONES - ENGINEER - WARRANTY !!

Rustsmith - what an awful journey. Even though you've got an aisle seat it doesn't help greatly (but better) when the trollies/trolleys ? are in use..... which is a lot of the time. Time for water, time for snack, anyone want to buy anything?? Yes, definitely the extreme back of the cabin to be up a...

Re: Light Bulb Moment Regarding Advising Iron

You would thinkwhile you were encouraging iron intake with your daughter without great success, that further iron investigations might have been an option - a simple blood test. I haven't previously heard of this condition and did a little searching. Here in UK all pregnant mothers are checked for t...

Re: CELL PHONES - ENGINEER - WARRANTY !!

Oh Steve, so you are now still mid journey. Had the airline provided anything to ease the wait... Food and drinks, anything at all. Is inconvenience recompense a poor dream? In your position I'd be in frustrated tears by now. As an aside, when on a long flight, we always book the worst seats. The ro...

Re: CELL PHONES - ENGINEER - WARRANTY !!

*Yankiwi*, the extended warranty for the new iPhone 6 was £6 per month and I thought this wasn't worth it. Anyways, as it happened, it was still under the one year warranty except they considered it invalid. I'm glad your difficulty was sorted, it justified your extended warranty. Regarding your tou...

CELL PHONES - ENGINEER - WARRANTY !!

I am beyond enraged. Five weeks ago I bought a new iphone 6 SE. This was a big deal for me because all of our cell phones have been given to us (husband and myself) by our adult children as they have renewed their own phones. I actually had to hand over money for the first time .... lol..... necessa...
