Re: 54 years Dealing with RLS

Hugs to you, Robin. Thank you for sharing. So much power in our stories - the sharing of them for the teller, and hearing what is in them for the reader.

Re: Stay Safe!

Yikes of course we are here to talk only about WED/RLS! I take our rules to say that we talk ONLY about RLS. As such, if someone invokes their religion in relation to how it supports them, but talks primarily about RLS, it's OK to mention. I thought that was a given but it would have been best to m...

Re: Stay Safe!

I know you can't discuss religion here, but it is the foundation of our approach to this. Mack, to amplify Steve's response to you a bit: there's a link to our Forum rules at the top of every page (in the pink bar); or, here . If you read it, you will notice we don't even mention religion.We don't ...

Re: Tramadol vs Kratom to stop requip

I made it 48 hours with none. I was really happy. But starting on day 3 I start to getting jittery and the worst nausea I remember in a long long time. I ended up taking .25mg because the nausea was really more than I could handle. Even zofran didn’t help. But it went away right after taking .25. H...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

I'm lucky, my new permanent GP has restless legs! Not so lucky for her. She is open to prescribing codeine for me at night @ 2 x 60 mg and more for movies and travelling. She does have to specify the dose on the prescription though. At first she prescribed 70 tablets but the dose said one at night....

I tend to agree. I don't even like the feel of fabric on my skin.

Re: Massager

There was a guy who used to post here about his wife who had WED/RLS. He was positive that massaging the instep worked wonders (and he had theories as to why). But I don't think it was just massage - he rubbed something into the instep... His board name was Robin-Whittle. This link is to one of his...

Re: Stay Safe!

I am enjoying my idle time.....getting the garden beds weeded and ready to plant cool weather crops, practicing piano, and watching movies. I am trying to figure out how to teach my private piano students virtually....I will probably have to have some help from parents, i.e., holding a cell phone o...

Oh, my. That poor woman - does she live alone? And, to have her at your door like that. Must have been difficult.

Re: Stay Safe!

Truly quite the time, isn't it? So many people have a hard time understand how quickly this can get out of hand and are kvetching about everything being closed. Glad to hear that all of you are OK as of now. Today Los Angeles county closed all non-essential businesses as of 10 PM tomorrow. The state...

Stay Safe!

I hope everyone is doing their best to stay safe. So many countries have restrictions imposed. I work from home, anyway, so not much new for me. But, we are trying to stay isolated since my husband has two autoimmune disorders as well as being a diabetic.

What's everyone doing with their idle time?

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Interesting, Betty. Well, just shows that one meeting with a doc is not necessarily enough! Glad he was so thorough. And, definitely odd husband hadn't told you that before! But, if you have been saying the gasping thing for years, definitely sounds like a missed opportunity for your local docs to h...
