Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Acesulfame potassium Is not my friend for RLS. I have known for years that aspartame nullified any medicine I took for RLS but I have discovered that acesulfame potassium Is just as bad for me. Like aspartame it is in many kinds of food products. We have used Da Vinci sugar free syrups for dieting f...

I heard that on news yesterday and was not aware that Ireland and Scotland even had hurricanes.

Re: What Relationships?

deb - getting him to the doctor is nigh near impossible. Yesterday his plan for today was to start building a wooden box out of old pallets. This box will hold a concrete plinth which in turn will hold a concrete bowl containing a solar water feature - it's just a bubbling of water a few inches hig...

Re: What Relationships?

Parts of my limbs are certainly demonic !! Last night my dh couldn't sleep well because of a sore shoulder which has been lingering for several days. I have raging cold symptoms since yesterday, stuffed up nose, headache, and am surrounded by nasal sprays, balm tissues (although I find an old towel...

Re: What Relationships?

I always felt a little like a vampire-zombie-wolfman who couldn’t do all the fun things like turn into a bat or turn into a quick animal at the sign of the moon but maybe we are possessed by demons :evil: lol

Re: What Relationships?

I made the doctors goal for my weight yesterday mostly from diet but also exercise by working in yard. The past week I have 3 days over 22,000 steps and the rest over 10,000. I have not been in this good of shape for years but still my sleep is a roller coaster and tired is a word I use a lot. Maybe...

What Relationships?

So did I retire? Do I choose to not be around people? If my wife knew beforehand what severe RLS would do to me would she have left? I refuse to make friends. I’m friendly but then I don’t want the responsibility of being a friend. I can’t do it. I will always disappoint because I am never the same....

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

2 mg Suboxne is working! Average around 7 hours sleep, sometimes goes down to 3 but that is nothing new with RLS. Taking half the meds make me feel less drugged up for sure and less side effects. It will be 1/2 the money too when I let the doctor know. I have been overly cautious though as i would r...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I love reading the old books. Yeah I do too. One of the neat things about gutenberg.org is that it converts old books that may have never been ebooks to ebooks. They also have some magazines converted to ebook formats, I think one is called, Astounding Science Fiction. I think the newest one of the...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

We don't use our Old Epson printer much. It is ancient. We spend our time coaxing it along. I imagine the 3D will be heavy/expensive on the ink. It is called filament and it comes on spools. The filament I use is 1.75 mm thick (like string really) and the spool weighs 2 kg. Comes in all kinds of co...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I had to google to find a description of the workings of a 3D printer. How mad are they ?? Of course, who ever thought we'd talk to each other and see each other live to anywhere in the world for a cost of next to nothing. You will have such fun. Last night I was out of sleepy time medication until...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Roller coaster week. Probably 3 out of last 7 days I had to take about a 1/4 mg extra suboxone to go back to sleep. I have gone from 8 hours sleep to about 3 hours sleep the last week. More often I have gone to bed and read for a few minutes then slept. Within 1 to 2 hours I wake wide awake and rest...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Slept from 7:30 pm to midnight & have been up since then. Already had 2 coffees and an Atkins bar. Mentally I am almost haunted with troubling thoughts of failure and a wasted life. Took my mother to emergency yesterday morning at 8:30 am as she called us and was having problems. Ended up being ...

Re: Wild lettuce?

I tried about 2.4 ml last night which is 3 stoppers full and while I slept it was a restless sleep, more so than usual. I tried the recommended 1.6 ml several times without much happening either. I tried it as was having trouble going to sleep, hard to say if it helped too bad I can’t go back in tim...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

7 hours 19 minutes sleep last night so 5 days in a row getting over 7 hours sleep. I have been at 2 mg dose now for several days so I think it is safe to say I made it to 2 mg rather than 4 mg! Very happy about that as besides the cost savings I feel much more "normal" taking half as much....
