It's funny you should write all that astrology stuff. I used to be into doing charts (not very well, but good enough) and I haven't in years. So, I do know what you're talking about. Anyway, yesterday I had a numerology relationship report on my husband and I - it was so accurate it was almost frigh...

Hi Joyce, thanks for remembering me My new appointment with new doctor isn't until the end of September. Thankfully, because of the Ambien I'm taking to keep me asleep at night for the arm problem, I've been blissfully unaware of any RLS issues. The only time it's problematic is when I'm laying on t...

Has nothing to do with it for me. I don't eat sugar or drink wine almost at all. I can't remember the last time I had a piece of candy (tho I did have glass of wine last Friday night ) I wouldn't be surprised if sugar did effect some people - after all severything we ingest affects us in some way. I...

Joy, here's something weird... I decided that a more pressing issue with me right now is the arm problem I'm having as this is a daily situation, affecting my sleep even worse than the RLS. The RLS has not been unbearable for a couple of months now, only intermittant, thankfully. I have an ulnar ner...

I was on this medication recently because I was having sleep problems related to a ulnar nerve (arm) problem I've been having. While it did help me sleep somewhat better, it wrecked havoc on the RLS problem. Plus, it made me severely grumpy, angry and moody when I'd wake up. I had to tell my husband...

Just an update - here it is 3 days before my scheduled appointment with said "expert" in RLS. As of Friday, I still had NOT received the paperwork I was told I needed to have with me when I arrived. I cancelled my appointment Friday. I do not feel that I can trust this doctor's office at this point,...

Joy, actually at the moment I'm a bit concerned about how good the office may be. I made the appointment nearly a month ago. They were supposed to send me a bunch of information and papers to presign. I never received anything. I called last Monday and told them and they sounded surprised and said t...

My grandmother, who is undiagnosed but from what she has always said to me, has RLS. She's been wearing a leg support to bed for that purpose as long as I can remember. When I first started complaining to her that I too had diffculties at night with my legs, she suggested the supports. I poo-pooed t...

From what I understand about the commercial soap making process there is no lye left in the product - basically it gets totally cooked out. It's a chemical process; you need the ingredient to make it but it I guess evaporates much like alchohol when used in cooking. You have the flavor left, but no ...

Ann, I just sent them an email. I'm new here, but already finding some questionable postings, let alone the hack attack from the other other week. Thanks for pointing out the need for moderators. It will be helpful and hopefully, there will be people with the time to help out.

Joy, Dr. Walters is in Edison, NJ. I found him while doing research online and was happily surprised to see he was one of the contributors to the book I mentioned. His list of credentials is long and outstanding. I just hope his personality isn't cut and dry. We'll see! Where are you located? Is Edi...

I used to be quite a heavy pot smoker - from about 18 through my late 30's (I'm 46 now). All those years, I never noticed any RLS problems at all. When I met my current husband the smoking went totally out the window, because he never was into that and I was finally mature enough to realize I didn't...

What to Expect? My 1st Consult w/Neurologist

Hi everyone. I have an appointment with a neurologist in a couple of weeks, it's my first appointment to specifically discuss the RLS problem with a doctor. I've certainly mentioned it to my G.P. and my orthopedist but neither of them had much to say, other than suggesting a neurologist. Interesting...
