Re: Anxious

Panic attacks are terrifying. My husband has had several. Hope you are both feeling better.

Re: Augmentation from tramadol

Oh - forgot the can you use it again question. Many of us have used DAs again. I waited a few years, others only a few months. As long as my ferritin is high (for me that means REALLY high - like over 275), I have no issues using a DA. But, I don't know if they know why tramadol causes it and if wha...

Re: Augmentation from tramadol

Tramadol is great for many...but that pesky augmentation! Doesn't happen often, thankfully...but that doesn't help you, does it? I honestly don't know how long it lasts - hopefully someone else will be more up on that. In most cases - very generally - augmentation lasts between 3 days and a month be...

Re: New member - 8 year old son diagnosed at 6 with RLS/PLMD

lpederson - I'd call the Foundation. The staff are so accessible. If Karla is around, she will talk to you. She is in the medical field and her daughter had terrible RLS as a child. She devoted herself to finding help for her daughter as well as all other children. It isn't an easy road because ther...

Re: Relaxis

A few people here have. The results, if I remember correctly, have been mixed. Maybe 50/50? If you look at the top right of the screen, there is a search box. Put relaxis in it and you will find posts. Of course, some will just mention it, as yours did, but you can find the ones that discuss it with...

Re: New member - 8 year old son diagnosed at 6 with RLS/PLMD

Since my son was born in 2011, he has not slept well. We first noticed he wouldn't nap or sleep through the night the way most babies eventually do. By age 3 we knew based on his behaviors something was not right. At age 5-6 we went to a psychologist and had him evaluated and he was diagnosed with ...

Re: Neupro patch map

I switched to Neupro a few days ago from my off-on use of pramipexole. My doc has added a few meds re. hypothyroid and fibro and between the new meds and winter, the rhinitis is terrible. Pramipexole has ALWAYS caused swelling of my nasal passages - but now I cannot breathe at night. I had mild symp...

WELCOME TO WKG

Monday, 18 of March -

Welcome to WKG, who cannot remember life without RLS. As with many of us, sleep and sleeping arrangements have been impacted.


We can all relate to that! If you want, poke around yourself, or introduce yourself by starting a new post. Either way, welcome.

Re: Gabapenten used thru the night

Well, the problem with gabapentin is that different people metabolize gabapentin much faster or slower than others. Most drugs have a fairly predictable metabolism rate. Not so with gabapentin. I am very sensitive to it. 150 mg for me is a tolerable dose, 300 mg turns me into a zombie. There are fo...

Sorry, leggo - was on vacation last week and not checking in often. This week I am paying as I have to get about 40 hours of work done for my classes in the next two to three days, lol.

Hope the taper helps.

Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

This is one of the complexities with the US system regarding pharma development. Lots of difficulties involved. It is one of the reasons that docs often use off-label options for things where the patent is expired; highly unlikely anyone will run a study for something that is off-patent, even when m...
