Also sorry to hear about your loss Randy. I never got close to my grandparents as they both passed away before I was five I believe and only have a few vague images of them at best. Sadly they were alcoholics and didn't really care much about anything exept getting drunk so I guess knowing them woul...

(((Ann))) I'm making you my new hero. To me all the heros before pale in comparison to the strength, courage and conviction you have in you. And don't say you don't have any of these things because you do, I know it seems hopeless sometimes but you have to hang in there. I like my doctor too but I w...

Hi everyone, (((Ruby))) Glad to hear you don't have fibro Ruby but sad to hear they don't know whats wrong. Hope they figure it out so you can get some relief from the pain.

I find opioids to be very relaxing for my RLS to the point where I have very little "crawling" or "tingling" in my legs. But unfortunately my doctor won't dx me drugs like that because he fears addiction but also I believe he just thinks I want to get high. I'm actually very strict with myself when ...

(((Kris and Kimberly))) Sorry to hear the trouble your going through. We all know to some degree the hurt we feel when a "supportive" spouse doesn't seem to get it when your not feeling well that day or night. My ex basically quit work because she was having a bad time with her late fathers death an...

Sad, but at least she died doing what she loved, not many can say that. I will say a prayer for all of them as they must be grieving the loss of a fellow human, friend and competitor. My deepest sympthy to the family and friends of this couragous woman, the loss is felt by all.

Peace 8)

wink, Welcome to the family! :D Not that I'm happy you got RLS, but I'm happy you found this website to help you if and when you need it. I've noticed I seem to have a very active kidneys/bladder and have to "go" 2-3 times a night or more. Most likely because I get very thirsty at night time but I n...

I checked out the above link, nothing to be worried about. Sounds kinda interesting actually, should investigate proxy servers more in the near future. But yes, it is obviously spam and needs to be deleted as it has nothing to do with RLS or PLMS.lol I've never been to a Neurologist before and I'm a...

Guess docs need their sleep so they can be bright-eyed and bushy tailed so they keep their consentration working on what must be one of the most confusing diseases their is, besides Lupus. I just get a "little" annoyed when docs say they understand what sleep deprivation is like as they often have t...

Hi lyn and Jan Your right, this site has probably saved more lives than the creators ever could imagine. The world isn't so scary when you have friends who will drop what they are doing and rush to your side to get you through whatever it is that going wrong that day. That's the reason I didn't do a...

I finally saw the commercial for RLS and thought it was informative but lacked a human touch. They should of had one of us on the commercial with tired eyes, tears running down our face as we pace across the floor looking at the clock that reads 3am. Then have the spouse come out looking all sorry a...
