Cycling DA's (Requip)

Given the probability of augmentation, I have been very hesitant to go on Dopamine Agonist for a long period of time. Are there any issues with cycling on and off weekly or bi-weekly? My hope is that this will prevent augmetnation, at least somewhat. I haven't had a chance to ask my doctor this.

Re: Changing my diet may have solved my RLS

Hi Badnights, You made the following statement, "My WED/RLS became severe after augmentation on dopamine-type meds and remained severe, so either the diet works or the effect of augmentation is finally wearing off." Are you implying that after the initial augmentation, your RLS stayed at a...

Counterstrain Technique

Has anyone else seen and/or looked into this?

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10. ... 0000000011

According to the study, his "Counter strain" technique was effective. I was not able to look at the entire research paper, just the abstract.

Best,

Re: Medical Marijuana

For me, it stops the urge to move. Its quite remarkable how effective it is. The caveat is that it is hard for me to fall sleep if the THC kicks in while I am awake. Therefore, I must fall sleep before it kicks in. Previously, this wasn't an issue, but is now because have had trouble fall asleep as ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I thought I would provide another update. It has been three weeks since I started using edibles for RLS/WED and my quality of life has improved dramatically. I cannot recommend it enough. I hope this keeps up for the long-term.

Re: New to Site; hello to all

I believe my RLS is triggered by stress as well. It typically goes away 100% when I am on vacation. Anything specific you are doing to manage the stress? Any specific triggers you have found?

Re: Vacation and RLS

This doesn't make sense to me! I went to Las Vegas last week with my girlfriend for 5 days. The moment I got off the plane I was able to sleep like a baby. I slept each night in Vegas for 8-10 hours and the first 3 nights back I didn't have RLS/WED. I was eating all kinds of foods, drinking alcohol ...

RLS oozz

Hello, Figure I will introduce myself. I’m oozz, 31 y/o male. I can say I’ve officially had RLS for a little over a year straight. Not sure when it started, but I have always had poor sleeping habits. I typically get it around 3:30-4:30 am every night. It’s mainly in one of my legs, but it’s not unc...

Serum Ferritin

I got some blood work done about 6 months ago, at which time the doctor included some sort of iron tests. I asked my doctor if one of them was a serum ferretin test and he answered yes, but seemed a bit unsure; he just stated, “I ordered 3 iron tests”. Is there anyway to determine if a serum ferriti...

Re: My RLS should I get a 2nd opinion ?

Question - when you wake up w/RLS is your mind running? Or. are you in a very sleep-like state?

Personally, I've noticed that I'll often wake up due to RLS and my mind is running at a million miles an hour.

Thanks.
