Got sleep? What's your jam?

I woke up today with more sleep than I'm used to and I felt energetic (where did that come from?!) and driven to accomplish something, so I took that energy and did something extremely important...I cleaned the cat area for 2 hours!!! I disinfected everyyyyything. Cleaning brings me unbridled joy. S...

Re: PLMW - Or Jerky Legs

Debbluebird, I hear you on the immune system being not as good as it used to be...I've had 3 consecutive colds since December. I'm used to maybe one a year but this is ridiculous. I'm not even sure there's enough different cold viruses that can exist in such a short period but one cold will resolve,...

Re: What to expect when "detoxifying"

Thank you for detailing your journey for all of us...I found these interesting articles on a doctor that discovered that a Low Oxalate Diet got rid of her Fibromyalgia and RLS symptoms. She recommends trying the diet for 3 weeks. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2174474/The-GP-gave-fruit-ve...

Re: New to Iron

Wantok, I've only seen a recommendation of 1 iron pill daily on supplement bottles with lots of warnings that iron is dangerous. I'm new to iron and my naturopath prescribed me 2 25mg Bisglycinate Iron at twice a day. Recently she upped that to 3 pills twice a day. At first I was nervous to take so ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I'm continuing a discussion started in "Just Joined," that mentioned Medical Marijuana Transdermal Patches....http://bb.rls.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9589 The transdermal patches by Mary's Medicinals are both awesome and expensive. You apply the patch to a veiny area like your ankle, top...

Re: MM dosages? and intro

Unfortunately, I have no experience with time release Iron...if you don't get a response from someone here soon, you could start a new topic in Non-Prescriptions Medicines and ask others. You'll surely get helpful responses. So glad you found some relief with the Paregoric! My only suggestion is to ...

Re: MM dosages? and intro

Hello Wantok, Welcome to our group...the people here are awesome. Your symptom description sounds very similar to mine. I've been experimenting with Cannabis and hoping to report my results to the group when I have consistent results but your post moved me to report sooner. Hopefully something I'm d...

Re: New to Iron

I'm wondering if the type of iron is important for symptom reduction? I've never considered this before reading Badnights reporting that Ferrous Sulfate made a difference for her. I have only used Iron Bisglycinate (50 mg elemental iron) and while my ferritin level has risen from 33 to 74 in 10 week...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thanks NatWest, but cooking mj is not an option for me. My neighbors wouldn't tolerate the smell and would get us kicked us out. Hi Steve, I'm wondering if you might be able to do your cooking/baking in a rentable commercial kitchen, or a place that teaches cooking classes? The process does make a ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I should also note that I highly respect Dr Buchfuhrer and his suggestion of Gabapentin. I have not considered Gabapentin for my current rotation because I understand that it takes weeks to start working, so probably not a good rotation medication. I'm doing the rotation partly to allow my serum fer...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi NatWest, I've watched your cannabis experimentation with keen interest. Thank you for sharing your valuable knowledge! RLS hit me hard and fast last August 2015. My naturopath suggested MM so I tried many of the products. I had hoped to report my findings to this group as you had but my results w...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi! I'm new to this forum and so thankful to all of you for sharing information. I have PLMS that keeps me from falling asleep, and wakes me up many times until morning. I'm wondering if anyone using cannabis has had relief from PLMS? I've visited both Washington state recreational and medical dispe...
