Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi. I am going to one of the mm friendly states next week and wondering if you have advice on edibles that would help me sleep. The reason I'm interested in edibles is I have read they last the longest and I could eat one an hour or so before bed and sleep through the night. I'm not interested in ge...

Re: Erratic results with Gabapentin

Thanks for your replies.
Mark, I would like to hear how it goes with you as my 1st experience was the same as yours. I am glad it worked for you and I hope it continues!

Erratic results with Gabapentin

I started taking Gabapentin again after having had an unsuccessful 1st time experience. My dosage is very small, from 100-300 mg at night to arrest the symptoms so I can sleep. The 1st night I tried it , it took away my symptoms almost immediately. The next night it seemed to trigger my symptoms wit...

Re: 42 and RLS worse than ever

Hi click4it. I think it is possible that you had RLS many nights before this but the Klonopin allowed you to sleep through it. I say this because I had been taking Ambien to sleep fairly regularly for years. I had stopped a few weeks before RLS hit me hard, every night. I started taking it again and...

Re: RLS friendly drug for major anxiety

I suffer from PTSD as well. I was the victim of strong arm robbery a year ago. What helped me the most with that was EMDR. At first I thought it sounded ridiculous and not worth considering. A friend convinced me to give it a try and I am so grateful to my friend and the pscychologist I went to. Jus...

Re: New member Hello! And Questions

I live in South Florida and agree with you 100% about how backwards our state is. Have you tried a neurologist recommended on the RLS Foundation's website? I plan to go to a recommended neurologist listed in Hollywood, FL next month when I get back from visiting my son in Ohio. I tried a neurologist...

Re: Another New Member

Good morning. Thank you for the good advice. I just checked on the foundations physician referral list again and found a number of doctors available that I could get to. I checked this list when I 1st joined and do not remember having all these choices. Perhaps it's been updated or perhaps my memory...

Re: Another New Member

Thank you for your response. It solidifies some thoughts I had. Yes, I think as far as RLS I may know more then the neurologist at this point and I do not feel he is a doctor that would be open to being educated. I will get my results in 2 weeks and see what the tests show. I will listen to what he ...

Re: Another New Member

I'm really confused and a bit crazy right now never knowing from night to night if i will sleep. It is effecting me a lot. I forgot to turn off the burner on the stove yesterday and am very emotional and depressed right now. I thought I had this under control by knowing that if all else fails at aro...

Re: Another New Member

I am going to a see a Neurologist next Wednesday. From my reading I am thinking I have Neuropathy with RLS secondary. I have been to my PCP and she says I have symptoms of both but she admits she is not an expert in this field. Much of the time I have a feeling that the back of my legs and calves ar...

Re: If you want to support medical marijuana in the US

I just signed the petition, but I think I'll need to move to another state as my state is governed by some of the least progressive people in the US :( In the meantime, if by chance I was to go by another route does anyone know the type of strain that works best on RLS? I'm sure not all types are cr...

Re: Another New Member

Hi "ViewsAskew" Thanks for your response. I have been paying close attention to my symptoms and now believe I have Neuopathy & RLS. Everday I experience an electrical type feeling which can also be crawly. It usually disappears late afternoon and comes back again in the evening. HOWEVE...

Re: First time seeing a neurologist

Hi. I am very new to this but I can tell you I have the same RLS symptoms during the day (especially when sitting) as I do at night. I often feel like I have over exercised one or both legs in the morning when I wake up. They seem to be tired. Sounds weird but it's how they feel.

Re: Kratom is working for me

This is a very interesting and hopeful thread for me as new person. I have a question if someone wouldn't mind answering:
I'm assuming you order the powder form. If so what do you mix it with. If not is there a different form you use?
Thank you for your help.

Re: Another New Member

Thank you for the information! I've already ordered the book and will get my ferritin serum level checked. As far as being at the stage of RLS medication I think I'm still at the stage of denial. I keep hoping that a non pharm treatment will work. I've already experienced the inconsistent outcome be...
