From what I understand part of the point was just that it does not work that way for everyone and the Dr's should be prepared to deal with those cases too. It's great that it offered you some benefit for a time but for others it just makes things far worse. It is sad that in this day and age of fast...

Does safe during pregnancy mean it doesn't affect the growth of the fetus or that the fetus also does not go through withdrawal symptoms when the baby is born and does not have an addictive personality later in life? Most drugs are affecting the babies ...

Re: Need Support

Just a note some of the meds used to put you under can aggravate the RLS/WED and they are listed on the Foundation site--usually it's something to tell the anesthesiologist ahead of your surgery. Just future info, Maybe that has something to do with the difference you have found from one surgery to ...
