Re: Don't know what to do

I know how you feel about wanting to cut them off, but the stubs would still be jerking, I had surgery on my foot and arm recently couldn't walk on my foot for a month or use my arm so I was very thankful to have them both after that Good luck this is a miserable problem! :(

Re: Sequential Compression Devices for RLS

I work at a Vascular clinic where patients have varicose veins, the Drs. tell the patients not to wear their compression stockings to bed, I 'm not sure why, maybe it affects the blood flow when lying down, I have some, I will ask about it.

Re: Menopause Hormone Replacement Therapy

I've been off and on Hormones but it's hard to say if it's worse on my RLS, or if Im Augmenting on Mirapex but I think Hormones help my migraines so I started back on them. I found out a couple mths ago that developed an Ovarian cyst and I wonder if it's from the hormones.

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy

I was on it for a couple mth didn't notice much difference in RLS, but I was taking Mirapex. I stopped hormones because I didn't know if it was causing wt gain and I developed an ovarian cyst, my Gyn said it may not be because of hormones that Menopause causes wt gain.

Re: DAWS post Mirapex

True! I stay depressed with or without the Gabapentin because of the RLS but I do feel worse when I take Gabapentin. I just recently started back on it and I noticed Im more tired and feel hopeless.

Re: Gabapentin & Depression

I take Gabapentin, I have been on it several times and I also felt more depressed and tired. Gabapentin is a mood stabalizer and side effects do say you can become depressed. I am trying to take it to slack off the Mirapex but it takes a large dose to help my legs. I usually end up stopping it.

Re: Transitioning from Mirapex to Horizant

I was given Horizant by my pain Dr. I don't think it works very well for me, it makes me pretty drowsy I am supposed to take 300 mg twice a day for pain. The dose for RLS is 600 in the evening. I also have Gabapentin which I took in the past but I had to take up to 1200 mg for it to work. Gabapentin...

Re: suboxone

I used to work @ Psych office we had a Dr. who prescribed Suboxone for Opiate withdrawal. It's funny how Suboxone and Methadone work in our brains to relieve RLS. I asked my pain Dr. a couple yrs ago if he could add Suboxone to my Oxycodone, and he said I don't think that would be a good idea. Now i...
