Re: RLS and leg cramps

Welcome to the Discussion Board.
I too have random cramp, none for years, then a few weeks of agonising episodes. It's been quite a few days, perhaps a week, since the last one.
I have no magic relief other than to keep taking fluids - other than that I just thole it and ride it out.

Re: Anyone Using Hot Tubs as Relief?

When I think of a hot tub I will remember Rustsmith's comment regarding the running costs - it also helps that I don't have space for a hot tub :lolno:

Re: Our Amazon purchases can support the RLS Foundation

It seems Amazon Smile is not available here in the UK, i.e. on Amazon.co.uk which is rather a shame.

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Eefall - so glad to hear from you. Your retirement has been a long time coming and now it is here. You can make it suit you.... no clockwatching..... With regard to resources I'd reckon you'd have done the figures. Our income is much reduced since retirement and it's been a case of 'cutting our clot...

Re: Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

What a brilliant idea.

For sufferers living outside of the USA - a follow up report and advice on treatment could perhaps be provided for the benefit of our local doctor.
I daresay 'appointments' would be be prepaid .....
I would do it.

Re: Two hours of sleep

I take a very tiny 10mg dose of Citalopram and am not aware that it causes me any difficulties.

I would agree that if it's a regular winter occurrence it sounds like SAD disease and light supplementation is worth considering.

Re: My Regime - Kratom/Neupro - and Thanks

It is always great to hear what has been of help, and indeed what has not helped. Yes, we are all different in how we respond to treatments but knowledge is power and there is always the hope that the experience of another will contain useful and beneficial information for another sufferer. Thank you.
