Re: The Relationship Between Inflammation and RLS

I had a similar thought as Beth. I am just not in a place that I can look at all of this and check each article/research critically - how large was the sample, how long did the research take place, was it a double blind, did they find causation or correlation, and so on. My background is in the soft...

Re: Healy Device

Hey! Glad to have you back!

I had a friend who tried to get me to use a device she had - she wasn't at all pushy, though, and really believed in it, so it wasn't high pressure at all. But, similar in that she was sure that if I only used it every day that I'd be all better.

that "Managing Your RLS" thread is great. Arigato.
Reminder that I should review that and make sure it is still accurate! Things change all the time and links break. Glad it was helpful.

Re: Second opinion w Dr Buchfuhrer

I've never heard of the drug you mentioned. I can mention it to my doctor and see if he chokes me. ;) Thanks for helping. Laura Carbamazepine is an anti-convulsant. Several options in this class have been tried. I don't have the RLS book in front of me (it is the best book on all the potential trea...

Re: Sequential compression device/air leg massager

I have been trying to find out if leg compressors could help and just found this discussion board. I, too, have very severe RLS and am looking for ANY help. How much can I pay you for these? Hello and welcome, mlarq. There are places you can order them. Do you need help identifying where to buy them?

Re: Sheets

If you can find them, percale cotton will last much longer. Most of us like the nice out-of-the-box feel of cottons that are a sateen finish, as well as that they do not wrinkle as much. They do not last as long in my experience. My mom still has some percale sheets she had when I was growing up. Sh...

Re: Second opinion w Dr Buchfuhrer

I think many of us have an incredible experience the first time we talk to him - for the first time, a doc knows more then we do, takes us seriously, is will to try whatever works, and he is up on the more current info. It is pretty awesome.

Re: Involuntary leg movements & knee surgery

I made sure I went through the RLS Foundation's suggestions with the surgeon. Before I know all this, I had wisdom teeth out. They had to wake me up during the surgery because the doc thought I was having a seizure. They'd given me dipenhydramine. - well, that will do it! I made the surgeon go over ...
