So I asked the doctor today if she thought it could be celiac, and she said no she didn't. I trust he judgment. She has done right by me the whole time I have been seeing her.

You are right. I will check with the doctor and see if she will do whatever tests need to be done to see if celiac is the cause.

I looked up celiac. I only have one of the things listed on there. Who knows though. I know my doctor is very good and maybe she can figure out if there is some kind of connection with all of this. I know the RLS, and migraines are hereditary. My mom has them both. I think I have had the gerd for so...

OK, so what's next?

I have had chronic pain in my head for 7 years. 2 months ago I found out I have chronic sinusitis, which in turn is causing the chronic pain in my head. So I took a course of antibiotics, told to take my Clairitan every day, and was given Fioricet for the pain. The Fioricet didn't work so well, so I...

My family has never ate much salt. My mom has congestive heart failure, and since I live with her to care for her due to other medical things, I don't eat hardly any salt. We buy the lowest sodium things we can find. Do not cook with salt, we buy seasoning salt that actually has no salt in it. I sti...

I'm glad to hear everyone is having any easier time with people understanding or at least excepting what is going on with you! My husband sleeps so hard he don't realize anything is going on! I can kick him and he don't wake up. (I have Periodic Limb Movement Disorder as well) During the day though ...

The only thing the CPAP machine is doing is forcing air into your lungs. (my mom is on a CPAP machine)
I don't know how having air forced into your lungs would help with RLS.
It may have helped you sleep because you were no longer snoring and waking yourself from it.?

Cancer Free!

A year ago today we all sat in a hospital waiting room while my dad had his esophagus removed due to cancer. A year ago today life was so different. Not knowing if he would make it through the surgery, not knowing if the doctor did get all the cancer out. Just not knowing. Today we all sat in a rest...

I went to see the doc. She upped my Klonopin to 1.5 mg from 1 mg at night. I sure hope this works.
I will go back on 5-1 to see how things are going.
