Re: Power Plate

Standing on it is only one way to use it. You can use it for working out, stretching or massage. I primarily use it for massage. I lay on my hips or quads or butt on the power plate to massage those parts; I hold the handle and also have a platform next to me to put my hand or elbow on to support me...

Re: Power Plate

I use the hand held massager too sometimes on my calf muscles -- and it usually seems to help. We used to own a gym where we had a couple of power plates -- otherwise I would likely have never known about them. I think one area of possible research would be to understand what muscles are affected an...

Power Plate

I want to tell people about this in hopes that it might be helpful. I have been caught in a situation where I was taking hydromorphene -- it wasn't working out for me. I previously had a home version of the power plate -- but its helpfulness was limited. I recently purchased a commercial model of th...

Re: Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

Hi. I was just thinking about this again. My wife just got an iPhone 7 and our son also has an iPhone 7. We just sent our grandson a birthday present and our son called us and it immediately came up on my wife's phone with a picture, using FaceTime. What if you used iPhones for this? You could send ...

Tele-medicine from Quality Care Centers

Since so many people with RLS have difficulty finding a doctor who will treat RLS - and even if they can the patient often knows more about RLS than the doctor, what if doctors at quality care centers would be willing to do tele-medicine with patients who live far away. Even if the patient had to sp...

Re: Med resistant RLS

I had the same problem. My wife who is a nurse suggested I consult a pain management specialist. I took some literature from this website to educate them and they have been treating me since then. Hope you can solve your problem.

Re: Topic of the Year

ViewsAskew. I have not logged on in a very long time. You mentioned that my jerks could be hypnic jerks. I am no expert either. However, these jerks also occur during sleep. They can also be somewhat robust. The meds that help rls also help these jerks, at least for a period of a few days. Not sure ...

Re: Topic of the Year

I just wanted to clarify one thing. The jerking starts when I am in a deeply relaxed state -- prior to sleep.
