LOL Aiken, I learned to walk toe first too, not because I lived in an apartment, but because my mom hated to have to buy new shoes because the toe was warn off. I've been told I walk like a Princess. Being a girl this doesn't hurt my feelings any :lol:

I just talked to my mom. I've not seen her in 10 years. And I hardly ever talk to her. Not because I don't want to but because she's not chatty. Both my parents have 1 word replies to every question you could ask. Sure, fine, nothing, and stuff. Anyway I called her today because I got my labs back a...

Welcome back Moonlight. It's good to have you here. For your sake I wish you didn't have to be here, I wish none of us did. I'm sorry to hear your RLS is not only back but it sounds worse. For the last 2 years I've only had RLS on the right side. It doesn't make it any less miserable does it? I've n...

(TIBC) Result = 319 UIBC Result = 190 Iron, Serum Result = 129 Iron Saturation Result = 40 FERRITIN, SERUM ...

methadone wakes me up.

I'm in my second week of methadone, and up to 5.0mg. I was taking it at 7:00pm so that it's into my system by 10:00pm bedtime. All the previous opiates I've been on in the past gave me a stimulated effect I'd call it "bug eyed awake" My legs still bother me on methadone but its on the back...

my heart goes out to you Krichwine. I don't have any advice to offer, just want you to know I understand what your going through, at least the RLS part of it.

maybe take in a sleep log to your neuro as well as the mayo clinic info.

good luck

I walk around my house barefoot constantly, I'm going to make an effort to try wearing slippers and see if it makes a difference for me... We are all so individualized with this.
