OK, I am having a strange panic attack. I started with some stomach problems yesterday - that sort of sulfurous burp. I just woke up and I am a little dizzy, a alittle nauseous and very very anxious. It feels like I imagine it must feel to have missed a dose. All I did was take 2.5 mg less 5 hours a...

part 2 of my question: I am also getting hot flashes still, even tho the hormone treatments are over. Could this be a methad one side effect? Also a weird thing I noticed is that these side effects - dizzy nausea hot flashes, did not become an issue until a couple of days before I stopped taking the...

I have a new question! My dosage was raised from15 to 25 mg over the last 6-7 weeks because my symptoms were being exacerbated by hormone treatments for in-vitro fertilization. The IVF did not work and I am off the hormones until May, maybe June. I'm thinking I should back off the methadone a bit si...

other RLS forums - dailystrength.org

There is another RLS forum at http://www.dailystrength.org. It is not very active, and seems to attract a lot of newbies who have zero information about RLS but doesn't retain people, I guess because it is not very active. When I remember to check in, I always recommend to new folks that they go to ...

what helps RLS in arms?

I wonder if I'm having RLS creepy crawlies in my right arm today. I've had twitching and jerking in my arms before but never the creepy crawlies. I've had tingling since sunday, but it was more like nerve problem - like carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome. What works to help the creepy...

These are all great ideas. I Originally wanted a good stairclimber for home, I was willing to pay the $900 for a good one. The cheaper ones tend not to last, from what we've read. I'd like to try one of the little ones Aiken mentions, but I haven't come accross one yet. Maybe when I'm garage sale-in...

Yes, I thought that if my doc could write me a letter saying that it was medically necessary that the office would let me have it. Though, they probably would have difficulty paying for it. I think you could not prove it was medically necessary for the workplace unless you could prove that you had e...

Wow. I just had an amazing call with my neuro. I asked if there was an upper limit for him on methadone for RLS. He said that recently he had a woman come all the way from Alabama to see him in Baltimore. She was in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy and losing her mind with RLS. It took 100 mg methadon...

OK. I'll try one of these. THANKS. I was asuming that the only reason the evening and night were going well was because of the medicine taken in the evening, and that any decrease in evening dose would cause the night to be bad, but it might be ok anyway. in the 8 weeks after my son was born, I woul...

These are all really interesting discussions. I was increased to 20 mg 4 days ago because of the infertility hormone shots. The Neuro said the hormones change the way methadone is metabolized in the liver and that they increase the brains sensitivity tot he RLS. Well, I had a couple of good days and...

Well, I understand what you mean, Zach. But right now, I need reassurance that I'm going to be reasonably comfortable for the next 9 months on this medication if the IVF works. If the IVF doesn't work, then I have other choices in terms of neurontin, and anxiety meds. Since I haven't stabilized on a...

Aargh. You know what is funny - I asked my neurologist if the patients he treated that became pregnant reported increase in symptoms during pregnancy and he said no, he did not remember them reporting this. But the common report among women is that it does. In the first 18 hours, I felt fine. I hope...
