Re: I am not new here. Have posted for years under stitch.

It is now after 4am and I am still up with one of the worse case of rest legs I have ever had. I can not keep my legs still. I want to go to sleep so bad/ Maybe tomorrow.

Re: I am not new here. Have posted for years under stitch.

The surgery went fine but the shingles are not so good. I am still lots of pain and its in the groin area which is a very painful place to have shingles. I never thought about prednisone.

I am not new here. Have posted for years under stitch.

I had eye surgery on the 1st of February and three days later came down with shingles. Since then my legs have gone crazy. It is all day and I am wondering if it's the RX h...

Re: Clonazepam for Sleep

Thank you Beth for all the information. I never thought it could be the pain meds. It will be three years this November that I have cut back. And my legs started getting bad about 6 months ago. I do know all about Augmentation and I had it when I was on too much Requip. I checked out what I am takin...

Re: Part 2 of poll questions. OPEN TO ALL

My doctor did not know anything about RLS but when I told him he did his research and was able to help me. He even went to meetings to learn more. But I still have the RLS and guess I always will. I have had them as far back as I can remember. Since a small child and I will be 80 on the 8th. So for ...

Re: Part 2 of poll questions. OPEN TO ALL

I answered yes because my doctor did everything he could to learn about RLS. I game him the RLS site and the Southern California group. He did lots of research on the subject and asked me many questions.
