Re: Change in Taste & Smell

You would think it would heighten it but not necessarily change the taste profiles, eh?

Re: Ropinirole Side Effect?

that's it The only question is in how much it lowers (your symptoms), the longer you augment the worse your symptoms and people haven't found that when they go off the symptoms go back to where they were (and in some cases not even close), so as soon as you start to augment you need to stop the meds...

Re: admins in the "Natural" section should not be taking med

Have you considered moving your remedy forward by some means--in order to get the respect it requires to be accepted? Like applying for a grant or something and going through the process of proving your science. You must admit it you are asking folks to take you at your word that it works--and in th...

Re: admins in the "Natural" section should not be taking med

One more pet peeve in regard to comments I forgot to add is the insinuation that if something "natural" works for someone, then they didn't really have RLS, or they may have had it, but it wasn't that severe. In my opinion, if you're lying in bed at night fantasizing about cutting your le...

Re: admins in the "Natural" section should not be taking med

It sounds like you are hearing the comments from the admins like "I'm glad..." as being insincere or flippant. I haven't seen that here (or anywhere on the board) and would encourage you to clarify that if it is the case. I believe they truly believe that if they say it--but I'm not them a...

Re: Change in Taste & Smell

So it's not a dulling of sensation (like from the meds) it's a different taste all together, eh? Any chance it could be from a tooth or throat infection etc.? Maybe a sinus thing--like allergies acting up?

Re: Ropinirole Side Effect?

These easy answer is that the longer and higher your dose gets, the worse your symptoms are going to get and the harder it is going to be to get straightened out. Also It has been discussed here a lot about whether or not your symptoms decrease back to where they were before the meds after augmentin...

Things like skin cream make me feel like I am being asphyxiated, you?

Re: Nice to find you. I have had RLS for forty five yrs

No, my parents didn't do that, they put me in a crib till I was over 2yrs old (literally) and tied me into bed, hands and feet at night after that. I have not gotten used to touch and do not accept touch of any kind now. I hate water and anything new like the concept of gentle breezes or massage, ba...

Re: admins in the "Natural" section should not be taking med

I thought that you were talking about the discussion board, are you talking about the topic? I believe that this is likely the case, and to that idea I had no problem with people keeping med topic off of it, but policing the board would detract from the time moderators (on meds or not) would have to...

Re: admins in the "Natural" section should not be taking med

I was of the impression that the input here was neither pro meds or against, rather one of acceptance and tolerance of the information put on by the members, no matter what it was. In your case for instance I was of the opinion that some of what you said I agreed with and some not--I was never of th...

Re: Roller Coaster Ride

it is interesting that the PLMs are worsened as a result of struggling during sleep. I don't use a machine but only have 1 lung and it is badly diseased and I have severe PLMs as the sleep clinic reported--maybe one has to do with the other and I would be more restful when I sleep if I got better br...

Re: 2 Ways to get a Better Sleep Despite Having RLS

there s no need to talk of things you have no knowledge--and as you are obviously not the Dr. of the folks on here you know nothing about their health, therefore, you're comments are offensive and unwarranted. If you have trouble with someone critiquing of your science --I'd ask you keep your commen...
