If my calls were not returned, I think I'd drive to the office. I'd be patient and just say I've not been able to get through on the phone. Or I'd call and make an appointment where I got time to see the Dr face to face. I recently did this with my family doctor and was very happy that I did. I hope...

that title pisses me off I don't believe it either, I think RLS can make you gain weight because of what I mentioned above, and I think it's ignorant to title an article like that. Here is one example but it's related to RLS meds. I was 174lbs after having my 4th baby. A few weeks after she was born...

Thank you for your replies and your tips. As far as getting someone to go with me =( nodda... I couldn't even get my MIL to babysit my 2 year old for me. My husband didn't want to take work off due to the economy. So I went by myself. I started the appointment off in an upbeat way, thanking Dr. Earl...

If your RLS keeps you from sleeping then your body doesn't make enough of this hormone making you feel hungrier, making you want to eat more and gaining more weight. In turn having more weight on your body puts more p...

that's exactly how it was for me. I cared less about my legs, so it helped in that regard, but there was ZERO sleeping while taking it.

I can't stop...

I can't stop crying when ever I go to the doctor. I'm going to see Dr. Earley on April 7th, and I need some tips on how not to ball my eyes out. I can barley talk because of the crying. I bring everything in writing when I go, but I don't think he likes it read any of it. But with the cognitive prob...
