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.

Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

We actually read the Wahl's book first. It has several good ideas and no doubt works for many people. Many of the concepts in it are similar to the concepts in the books I suggested. One of the best things she says is how her diet works for multiple neurological conditions. This is similar to what t...

Re: CPAP

Several adjustments were made. I also tried a more sophisticated type of CPAP that adjusts itself to the person. Nothing helped. I can't explain it. It's just something about me.

Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

My wife read this book recently that provides a diet for neurological conditions based on lots of research. It is called: The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable By Stephen Phinney (Autho...

Re: Foam Rollers

I also want to say that I use foam rolling in combination with a massage stick. I find that the massage stick can find areas that I don't seem to get with the foam roller. The knots in the muscles from RLS are typically more difficult to get out. I often have to massage the same area over 100 times ...

Re: Foam Rollers

Foam rolling has been very helpful for me. I use a simple hard black foam roller. I find that the harder ones work better for me. I have severe RLS and foam rolling can be painful. I sometimes have to do it more than one time a night and on different parts of my leg. I have to search around to see w...

Re: Exercise (weightlifting/bodybuilding)

My RLS is in the severe stage. I find that if I work out too intensely in the evenings that I have a difficult night. Stretching and foam rolling of my legs and back help. Yoga is helpful because of all the stretching that I do.

Re: CPAP

I am somewhat of an anomaly with a CPAP. I experienced augmentation about 4 years ago and was using a CPAP. The RLS moved into my trunk. My hips and back would jerk. After about a year I noticed that the frequency of the jerks increased while using my CPAP. They even did a sleep study on me to get d...
