Thank you everyone for your comments. I've had similar experiences to yours..esp re. the apnea, which I do not have.

Actually I am seeing a Dr. Benjamin Walter, neurologist, who is supposed to be an RLS expert. We shall see.

I'm with you Susan...should start saving to see Dr. B!

Finding a good doc

Hello everyone... I have an appt with a Cleve Clinic RLS specialist/neurologist next month. I am truly hoping he is understanding and patient, which you all know is necessary in treating this condition. I am one of those patients who seems 'resistant' to everything. Went thru benzos, opiates, Mirape...

That is wonderful news. I agree re. prayer and I'm often embarrassed to talk about it at the risk of people thinking I'm nuts. I prayed intensely every night, on my knees, before bed over the summer and I slept 10X better than I do now. Thanks for reminding me, I'm gonna start again this evening.

Thank you! Yes I've had it checked and mine is low. I just increased my supplemental intake...trying to figure out the highest dose that is safe. I think I'm gonna see a doc soon to discuss all this.

Neurologist or 'Sleep Specialist'?

Hi Everyone- I think I might see someone in the New Year if I can't maintain some lasting relief off meds. Just when I think I'm OK for awhile it comes raging back. My family dr is pretty clueless so I think I'll try to find a specialist on my own. From your experience which of these docs is a bette...

New, saying hello

Hi everyone my name's Meg, I'm 38, and developed RLS while on Zoloft 13 years ago. First of all, thank you so much for the excellent information. My RLS remits/relapses and lately I could not stand it...then read on this board aspartame is a trigger. Once I eliminated that things improved. I didn't ...
