So i'm thinking the meds must be working some kinda way.But I was in a horrible mood.I feel better n...

Feel dizzy when you go into a sleep crisis? Let me know you all.If this isn't normal I need to know. Well last night was my last good nights s...

I totally agree Jan.
How many times have I drove 20 or so miles and not remember getting there?? Too many to count..Then I panic.
You know what it's going to take is some scientist getting RLS,PLMD and publishing it and it hitting CNN.

My daughter has it i'm pretty sure but hasn't been diagnosed because her primary(HER BOSS) doesn't quite buy RLS.Can you believe it!
Should she fill one out? I've questioned her at length and theres no doubt in my mind AND the meds she's on are Klonopin and Neurotin...hmmmm :evil:

Heron,I thought it and you said it exactly.No one with this thing should ever be told that this thing that took over our bodies isn't debillitating.

Sole, I took the antidepressant and my Klonopin and added the flexeril and Ultracet..It's been awhile now and have resorted to having them shipped in(i'm not advocating it). If I can grab a Ultracet when I get up it helps alot,you know before the jumping.Then mid day a flexeril then bedtime it's fle...
