Great Dr in NEPA!

Hi All! I do not have health insurance so I've been managing my RLS myself for quite some time. I do have RLS 24/7 and have been taking Requip at bedtime to manage my nighttime symptoms. But I finally decided to take the plunge and go see a neurologist who specializes in movement disorders. My presc...

Ann, I'm ok. It was a frustrating and a little bit of a frightening experience. I didn't expect to miscarry after a negative test result. So Saturday morning when I woke up hemmoraging, all I could think was WTF? But I'm healthy and fine and have learned some valuable lessons through this whole expe...

What a mess! Its been a wild ride over the past 2 weeks. Remember how the hospital test came back negative? Well they only did a urine test, never a blood test. This past weekend, I believe I miscarried. HORRIBLE!! But I will never know the truth because urine tests can be so subjective and give so ...

Zach, I think I read that same post this afternoon. It has been WAY more than 10 days. It has been more like 25 (ish). I'm planning on retesting at home because I read that it is almost as likely that a dr test could have a false negative as a home test. Crazy, isn't it? I can say that now that I am...

OMG, you guys are right. I totally wrote it off. But maybe I should take one more home test and see what it says. First thing tomorrow morning (best time). But in the meantime, I am back on my Requip and getting some sleep finally. My body still hurts so bad, but I know it will heal. I thought the s...

Well, you all have been of tremendous help. I am so grateful there is a community like this available. Thank you SO MUCH! :D So here's the update. I went to the ER this morning. The first thing they did, obviously, was a pregnancy test. It came back negative. As a woman who has her head on pretty st...

Thanks for all the advice. I am heading into my 2nd night, still sleepless and still moving. Now, because I have been in motion and on my feet for the past 36 hours straight, I have lots of pain in my back, hips, knees and feet. I would kill for the ability to lay down, even if it didn't come with s...

Wow, thanks for all the info. The pregnancy is welcome so I will accept all of your congrats! Now, here it is 5:30am and I haven't slept a wink. Worse, I cannot even take weight off my feet without my legs going nuts. Even with weight ON my feet my legs are out of control. And it just keeps getting ...

I have severe RLS. Can't sleep a wink without 1.5mg of Requip at night. Have it horribly during the day, can never sit and relax. I just found out that I am pregnant. TODAY!! So I know that I cannot take my Requip tonight, or from now on for that matter, and I am trying to prepare myself for whateve...

Vitamins and Minerals Deficiency

Hi! I'm Sarah and new to this forum. I must say how happy I was to find others in the same situation as myself. No one around me understands RLS. They all say, Oh yes, my legs get twitchy sometimes too! They have no clue! And I have yet to find a doctor who gets it either. So I'm on my own over here...
