Re: Spinal stimulation?

It is working for me. I am having no RLS and my leg spasms are reduced. I had some medium spasms last night at 8:30 before going to bed and some mild ones at 4:15 am that I was able to roll over and go back to sleep. I am getting the Nevro HF 10. There were several ones offered to me and me and my ...

"Ask Dr. Jo" is a very good on-line physical therapist. I've used her exercises for various things as well as visiting a physio in person when able.
Have watched her several times myself!

Re: buprenorphine sublingual

So sorry none of us have really had any experience with this.

Have you had any resolution?

We wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for this man. Not just the work he did himself, but also he mentored generations of students who have gone on to study WED/RLS. His legacy continues.
Indeed.

Re: Pain in legs and restless legs

It is very possible that you have two things going on - the RLS/WED as well as some other thing. I have periodic pain from three things that are different. One is fibromyalgia, another is related to nerve compression, and the last is a muscle knot issue called trigger points. Am heading out to walk ...

Re: FMLA

So sorry this happened. Unfortunately I haven't used it. I do know a few people who've achieved SSI in the US, but only after at least one appeal. I do have to wonder about the symptoms in your arms. Would you might sharing what you are taking? Symptoms in the arms aren't completely unheard of, of c...

Re: Spinal stimulation?

I agree! Most people don't realize how destructive it is! I wish I had the last 25 years of my life back as well as all the money spent on doctors, neurologists, spine doctors, MRIs, medications and emergency room visits (not RLS but caused by it). I even lost most of the vision in one eye (the res...

Re: muscle relaxers

Same here. I had a neck issue where I couldn't move my head at all without extreme pain. They gave me flexeril and besides making me incredibly relaxed (so that I couldn't work) my legs/arms weren't bothered.

Re: Topical gel Diclofenac

Sadly, I am in the same camp as Betty. I have a chronic knee condition and often use the gel when I hike or walk more than usual and my knees hurt. Doesn't change anything with the WED/RLS.

Re: Weaning off Methadone

Would be wonderful if that nerve block worked to stop the spasms. That tear in your rotator cuff sounds painful.
