Re: Severity of RLS/WED?

While I qualify as severe, mine is not as bad as it was - it has been a very slow reversal after augmentation. I used to have it 24/7. Then it was about 18/7. After my third iron infusion, it seems to be about 16/7. Now, every day for more than 50% of the day is not fun, but it is better than the 24...

Re: It's settled! Seeing specialist!

I rarely have to wait longer than a few weeks to get an appt. But, I am not a new patient, either. Likely has something to do with it. It is one of the reasons I like going there.

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

I have often wondered how I could do a job where I had to be present, on site, with a manager looking over me for 8 hours at a time. Not sure I could have worked as long as I did if I had not had flexibility.

Re: World War III - I pushed the button

Views, We have a lot in common. Also lifelong food issues here. Dad was also a drinker. My experience of abuse was largely emotional neglect from both parents. This too can really scar a person. So glad you have great friends to help! I have some but not enough who get this kind of thing. I have be...

Re: Extreme compression DIY

In my case, there is a definite relationship between my trigger points and my RLS. When my RLS symptoms are active, if I concentrate on feeling the point of origin for the RLS symptom, it tends to originate within muscles which are overly taut or which are now a trigger point. Not all of my trigger...

Re: Kratom berry compote

Badnights, I wish I would have put it back on the MD by saying, do you have a concern about that? Instead of trying to justify myself, which never quite passes that index of suspicion in their eyes. How is it that the addicts never back down and always end up getting what they want, while the rest ...

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Beth and I have talked about this multiple times here - accepting how we have changed is extremely hard. And, as she said, I am still accepting it. I used to think I would eventually accept it and that would be that, but there are too many *OK* or *normal* moments that my brain thinks things can be ...

Re: Tortured Newbie

Oh my, that bowel/bladder thing sounds horrifying! I definitely would never want to take that drug again.

Sadly, agree with Steve - your experience with your doctor is all too familiar. Still infuriates me every time someone has to go through this. Grrrrrr!
