It's so hard to think of encouraging things to say in the face of such an intractable disease. You need to heed your own advice at this point and remember that you haven't tried everything out there. I KNOW you're sick of trying :( I totally get you on the alerting effect, I got that even with codei...

Oh Ann!! Keep trying those combinations. Your response to each drug won't necessarily stay the same over time, so something might start working that didn't used to. Just one visit with Dr B? Are you scheduled to go back? Has he mentioned anything about trying a - umm, what do you call it, an alertin...

so far so good. Maybe now because you're posting I'll be able to say I know of a guy this worked for.

I tried my own version of your rice socks but it didn't work out too well. I made a pouch with quilt-like divisions in it (you'd mentioned on the other forum that you wish you'd done that to stop the rice from concentrating in one area). I intended the 'quilted' rice pouch to go under a big wooly so...

GG I could never take Klonopin every 4 hours. It must work magic in you. I'm glad you've found the right combo; basically Lyrica and codeine for the RLS. Have you tried to get straight codeine? that acetominophen is completely unnecessary and not good for you. I mean , it's just bad on principle to ...

oh Zach, you're right, darn it. I probably couldn't last long enough to convince them a withdrawal was over.

Brenda I haven't dared the clonazepam for months, I'm afraid it isn't as nice to me as it is to you. I have 0.25 mg pills and they absolutely kill my next day.

well cornelia, you and me both might be finding out what happens when you just keep getting tolerant. I've been wondering the same thing a lot. And it sort of pisses me off to have to be happy with 80% of my life (not that I have even that right now); how hard is anyone trying to get me 100% of it? ...

I am tempted to call a doc like Earley. I have a lot of his papers already! and books that he has contributed to. But I will give this new guy a bit more of a chance. GG thanks for reminding me that he is not evil and probably does want what's best for me. I have finally been able to compose a fax t...

As the others have said, this is a decision you have to make yourself. Some things to consider: apparently methadone-addicted babies get over it and are normal after withdrawal - that said, you should check if anyone has done long-term followups eg do those babies have more risk of addiction later i...

Ya, sucks. Dogeyed, I can't take hypnotics, I mean they'll help me sleep if I have no symptoms of RLS but if the force is moving in me, I have to stay up and move around, and the hypnotics just make it more miserable. Believe it or not, this guy I'm going to be seeing - just had my intake appt in Au...

I already paid my own way for a sleep study that was a total waste of time because the clinic was full of morons who knew nothing about RLS. That's the Canadian Sleep Institute in Calgary, run by a Dr. Adam Moskovich who lists himself as an RLS specialist with the RLS Foundation, which is why I chos...

I want to swear and hurt someone

The last 3 years I've spent waiting, waiting to see a doctor get a test done get test results and none of those things take 3 months, it just takes 3 months for people to get around to doing them. There was the delightful 7 months I spent waiting for a replacement doctor while taking a suicide drug....
