Re: Over 40 Years of RLS

I only took Carbidopa-Levodopa for 3 weeks. I was taking Gabapentin for the last year when I was tapering off 20 years on Kolonopin. Gabapentin seemed to quit working on the RLS after 11 months, maybe made it worse. Insomnia was the worst side effect. Maybe daytime RLS. Part of my problem is I can't...

Re: Over 40 Years of RLS

I watched your video and feel your PLMD Sleepdancer2. I thought mine was severe but it pales in comparison. What TENS unit are you using, I see there are several. I just finished my third night on no medication and feel better than I have in a long time. I have only taken magnesium so far but intend...

Re: Over 40 Years of RLS

Thanks again Polar Bear. I know I OD'ed on Magnesium but it worked. Don't plan on doing that again and ordered some pills to get a consistent amount. I need to review issues taking multiple supplements. I don't know if holistic approach will work but I am running out of options and hope never to go ...

Re: Over 40 Years of RLS

Thanks for your response Polar Bear. I have become suspect of the Carbidopa-Levodopa because in two weeks I have RLS all day long, bad insomnia and head in the clouds. Dr. prescribed it because Mirapex we were going to try instantly gave me a bad headache and I have tried about everything else. I ha...

Over 40 Years of RLS

I have had RLS since I was 16 or younger and am now 59. I just dealt with it until I was 39 when the 1st Dr. prescribed Klonopin. It worked great for 20 years until I found there is a significant increase in chance of Alzheimer's in large Canadian study. I spent the last six months getting off Klono...
