I also received an e-mail saying I had a PM from here. But, I did not. I am also a member but have not been this message board for a while. Something strange is going on.

I'm game. I think a daily roll call might get someone who doesn't post often, like myself, to say hello. I read everyday but post just every once in a while.

I just wanted to post an update on my cousin. She no longer any money so she is resorting to $2 mouthwash to get drunk. Did you know listerine has 26% alcohol in its mouthwash? I didn't. She called me today wanting a ride to the store to get mouthwash not knowing I knew about the alcohol content. Al...

Lyndarae, Some of the things you mentioned are so on target. I have heard from my cousin how ashamed she is, embarrassed, how much pain she has caused and how much she doesn't want to drink. She is so sad and depressed because of her actions she has thought of killing herself. She has also been cutt...

I think this is a good question because I get them too. Everywhere also. They are isolated, last a very short time, usually. Sometimes I can see the muscle twitch and sometimes I can just feel it and not see it. If you look under the heading "More about the RLS Foundation" and click on Media, and th...

Thank you so much for all your replies. Many of her family and friends and even her attorney are tiring of her and turning their backs on her. My aunt, who lives next door to her, is trying to keep her safe and keep others safe from her. Aunt Janie is physically and emotionally exhausted. I will kee...

She needs her gallbladder removed, she is being treated for pancreatitis, and yesterday was diagnosed with hepatic live...

I also have twitches that I can see. I have them in my feet, calves, thighs, hands, arms, back, abdomen, and face. That is the most unsettling part of this and I thnk it is because it is not part of the definition of RLS. I did find in the MEDIA section of this Website under the "More about RLS foun...

I don't always get symptoms in my back and face, just occassionally. So it varies alot. I hope you get some answers. I know how...

RLSgirl, I have had tingling in my forehead and cheeks before too. I also get it in my neck and throat area along with a twitchy sensation. I do not think RLS has to start in the legs. Mine started in my feet and progressed up my legs. I also have sensations in my arms, hands, back, and abdomen. Som...

Lovechild, The smell of smoke is not just on your hands. It is on your clothes, on your hair, on the furniture, on the upholstery in the car, on stuffed animals, on dolls, on linen. It is everywhere. You should do some research on the effects of second hand smoke. You might even do some research on ...

Tashton, My internist suggested that I take melatonin. It comes in 1mg and 3mg tabs. I tried the 3 mg. It worked. I slept well but had a migrane for 3 days. I recently tried a 1/2 a 3mg tab without side effects. You might want to start low and work up to 3 mg if 1 mg doesn't help. I do not have expe...
