Re: Getting ready to sue

I wanted to try Horizant last year. My doctor prescribed it for me but the pharmacy said they couldn't get it.

Re: Topic of the Year

Sleepdancer2 -- Thank you again for your replies. After the sinus operation I did not notice any difference in my symptoms. They did not seem to increase. Since the brain is right behind the sinuses I am guessing that the added pressure of the CPAP somehow aggravated something in my brain that made ...

Re: Topic of the Year

sleepdancer2 -- thank you for your reply. I do not doubt that what you say is true. But for me The difference is very noticeable even when I am in a semi sleep state. When I did the last sleep study, I did not take any meds and I slept very little during the test. I believe it was an ABAB condition ...

Re: xbox, playstation, wi etc.

I had a WII a few years ago but I became addicted to playing Madden online. Probably partially due to the addictive side effects of my mirapex. So it actually made my sleep worse during that time.

Re: Topic of the Year

I have had RLS/WED for at least 35 years. During the first 20 years I controlled it through the use of stretching. In 2000 stretching was no longer effective and my symptoms lasted all night long. I then started taking mirapex. I started taking 1 mg but changed to 2 mg after a few months. I believe ...

Fisher Wallace Stimulator

I have been seeing several internet adds for this lately. Does anyone know if this would work for RLS/WED?

Re: Foam Rollers

There are different hardnesses of foam rollers. I use the black ones that are the hardest. I use massage sticks sometimes as well -- but I have to push hard with them and I can more easily get a higher amount of pressure on the area for an extended period of time with the foam roller. Using a lacros...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I tried Medical Marajuana back in 2013. I did not get very much direction from my doctor, but I was able to find out that types of marajuana that had more indica worked better on problems like RLS. I made peanut butter sandwiches with the stuff and it seemed to help me sleep better but my symptoms d...

Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

Stretching seems to help my highly active symptoms but it seems that for me it may not be as effective as foam rolling. But what I have realized is that sometimes I am not stretching the most effective muscle group. Sometimes I need to stretch my quads -- sometimes my calves sometimes my hamstrings;...

Re: Magnesium........does it help??

I find that magnesium can sometimes be helpful. Almost all of the alternatives to milk; e. g. almond milk, coconut milk, etc are fortified with calcium. On the surface this seems like a good thing. But it can put your calcium magnesium balance out of wack. So I take magnesium a few times per week to...

Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

I hope I didn't include too much information in my last post. I must also say that along with these measures I foam roll every evening and when I wake up I also foam roll to get back to sleep. Some of the people who say foam rolling is not helpful make me wonder if they are doing it correctly. When ...

Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

I wanted to give an update. I experienced improvement for about 4-5 months. It did not totally solve my problems but it was enough aid to allow me to take lower amounts of medication and to go without medication for 2-3 nights per week. My guess is the combination of the diet with the amount of medi...

Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

Good luck to both of you Steve and KDecker. I found partial relief as I went on this diet that gradually decreased over time. After listening to the Augmentation webinar, which I highly recommend, I realized that I needed to stop my Mirapex -- which I had started again after I had experienced signif...

Re: Accupuncture worked for me

I tried both regular acupuncture and cranial acupuncture -- where the needles are inserted in your head. In both cases they seemed to help for a few months -- but then they stopped helping.
