Hi Margie, welcome. I think Lyndarae put out a welcome to all new members; I second that. Sometimes new member posts get lost in other posts; it's not that those who post often are ignoring them. This condition can do strange things to those of us that have it! Being in a place where others understa...

Hi JosieAnn,

Some of us talked about this a few months ago (and no one was offended or too embarrassed); here's the link to the topic.

Wow, that must be awful. So sorry you are going through that. It doesn't do that to me. . . but Mirapex did! How weird these meds are that they work so differently for us all. It's not considered one of the better drugs because of the long half-life; maybe because of this you can convince your docto...

Surgery and hormones and emotional disorders and RLS

I was reading Simone's post about going to have a hysterectomy and the posts about hormones and RLS, so I did a couple of searches (obviously too much time on my hands!). The following link is about RLS and spinal anaethesia. If you have had surgery or are planning on it, might want to check it out....

I'm not affected by this, but am wondering if the hormonal changes have any impact on neurotransmitters. I'm thinking as I type, and not out of any knowledge - just wondering what might be causing the correlation for so many of you. Another Jumpy Owl item :lol: . Speaking of Jumpy, how the heck are ...

Glad you posted that, Lyndarae. I find myself getting less and less tolerant of those that only can see things from one perspective. I'd, too, like to know Dr Neuro's credientials. I couldn't help but notice that none of the people who are pushing Requip have 'joined' our group - they are all guests...

Amen to that, Lyndarae. I've heard too many people on this board and others that are unable to take the DAs. And neurontin only helps some, either alone or as an add-on. Requip might be a logical starting point as it does appear to help many, but it is not the end game for some, such as you and me a...

Corrie, good idea. I forget that it is here. Not only that, but I don't find the layout of this site all that intuitive and always have to search for stuff!

Time for all of you to get it right! I'll choose to take that in the spirit in which I'm sure it was given :wink: . Dr Neuro, if you are a medical doc, we'd sure appreciate your help in educating your fellow doctors. DAs are the drug of first choice for daily RLS according to the Mayo Clinic algori...

Simone, my fingers are crossed that it works. My friend had awful problems with fibroids; her cycles were contant, she was terribly anemic. She had them "shrunk" through a procedure and it's been one of the best things she could have done. The anemia is gone, she feels so much better. She doesn't ha...

Not heard of anyone taking it, so I did a search just to see what it was. Found this: http://www.mdvu.org/library/disease/rls/rls_mom.html http://www.wemove.org/rls/rls_altm.html It doesn't seem to be a mainstream drug, though for RLS, though. I'm interested to hear how/why it was prescribed and how...

I just went through my notes from the RLS conference. I didn't find anything about continued fatigue IF RLS is under control with meds. Doesn't mean it isn't so, but no one talked about it in any of the sessions I went to. Some things I did find that may be pertinent: -RLS does cause some cognitive ...

What I couldn't understand is why I was still fatigued on the 6 days out of 10 when I was not experiencing the RLS sensation in my leg. I would feel better, but still a lesser level of fatigue. I had deduced that the fatigue on those six days when I was not experiencing the RLS sensation in my leg ...

WBfann, I can empathize with the self-image thing. Elfreida just posted about that in another thread, too. My best friend has lupus and is cannot do anything she used to, my DH has celiac and sleep apnea, and we have all talked about this. My DH had a revalation that since his sleep is so disrupted ...

I think it was on the large Yahoo group. You may already be familiar with Yahoo groups for other things. If not, just go to Yahoo.com and find Groups in the list of things you can go to. Once you get to the main group page, search on RLS and you'll come up with lots of them. Look for the one that ha...
