Re: I'm tired of fighting

Some of the opioid side effects is the timing of it. Try keeping a diary as to what time you took it and how long it took to go into effect. If you're waking up sedated, it's possible that you are taking it too close to bedtime. Are you also treating your depression? You sound extremely depressed, w...

Re: Paradoxical reaction on gabapentin?

Thanks, ViewsAskew. My friend with fibromyalgia brought up that maybe this is fibromyalgia. I hadn't even thought about that but that seems like it may be more likely than MS. I've had chronic pain for at least a decade. It flares up and down independent of anything I've been able to identify, somet...

Re: Paradoxical reaction on gabapentin?

Thanks so much, you guys. I take oxycodone 10 mg for the RLS which is very effective. I've been on it since a year ago October. Does anyone have a link to video of augmentation movements of trunk? I'm curious if augmentation is what's causing my involuntary movements. I guess even if it looks like a...

Paradoxical reaction on gabapentin?

Wondering if anyone has experienced muscle spasms, abnormal movements (big jerks--literally and figuratively :lol: ) and muscle cramping on gabapentin? Dose was 600 three times a day. Also having intolerance to heat, hot/cold, shivering, and elevated blood pressure, and night sweats. Also just getti...

Re: What Relationships?

My coping strategy is similar to yours but not so coherent :) - Also - a big one - I have lowered my expectations. I can't do as much as I used to, and I can't do it as well, but I'm still a nice person and have some intrinsic value. ... - Another thing I'm working on is de-stressing. My job has be...

Re: Esophageal Spasm and RLS

I get esophageal spasm. One trigger is eating too much ice cream too fast. Another trigger is taking an opioid without a significant amount of food with it! Now I know the feeling, but it's very painful, and every time it happens, it still makes me wonder if I'm having a heart attack even though I'm...

saying hello

Hi all, I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I've had my 3 month anniversary on my new job and it's going well. I have 3 more months to go before I get off new employee probation. That has been my main focus these past few months. RLS wise, I am doing more or less ok on 5-10 mg oxycodone per night. I...

Agree, bassetmom. Sad and frightening. Infuriating at times too.

Glad you enjoyed it. I've been seeing more of these lately, which is a good thing.

Re: Kratom berry compote

Do you need to tell your sleep medicine doctor that you're going somewhere else? I haven't told my back surgeon I'm going to a pain management doctor (recommended by by primary care doctor) because he so egotistical he'll never accept the surgery didn't fix my symptoms. I've had my primary care Dr ...
