Re: Characteristics of PLMD/PLMs

In the past, I read the same as sleepdancer noted - it must be a joint - toe, ankle, knee, hip are most common, but can be wrist, elbow or shoulder.

Re: Social Security - US

I am waiting for a vaccine - Shingrix - to be delivered to the doctor's office. Ann, Be sure you don't have plans for the day after your Shingrix shot. They have a VERY high rate of flu-like symptoms (headache, tiredness, muscle aches and fever). Shingrix is actually 2 injections months apart. Ther...

Re: Social Security - US

I definitely don't have fibroids that are of any size, thankfully. My last exam was a couple months before my periods stopped; I never had excess bleeding, clotting, or the typical issues of someone with them and the gynecologist said there were a few small ones, but no big deal. I guess they could ...

Re: Social Security - US

I did some research after the initial diagnosis. The consensus seemed to be that you should always get a fibro dx from a rheumatologist. I figure I will push that sometime in the future. My body is doing such odd things lately. I had a sinus infection - haven't had one in 20 years. That was fun...no...

My husband, SIL, and niece all have been diagnosed. Which is part of the reason I am skeptical. Can that many people really have it? Or is it being used when docs really don't know what the problem might be?

I am for one reasons - no one else is trying to help us. THEY ARE! If a few dollars from me can combine with a few dollars from you and others, we can actually be part of the solution.

I have no inflammatory issues that we can find. I have the pain, but if it is fibro, it isn't inflammatory. Who knows. The ANA wasn't high before, but this is going back years ago.

Yes - mostly good. I do wish I knew why I had so much pain. It really doesn't seem right for fibro, but maybe that is what it is. I haven't started an AD yet because the one she prescribed wasn't covered by insurance.

I received a notice from my insurance company that I would be limited to a certain mg, not number.

Re: Social Security - US

OK - results are back. No lupus. YAY. I didn't think it likely. No Sjogren's, either. Already knew it wasn't RA. The SED was still high, and all three ANA tests were high. The titre was 1:40 this time. The doc says I am either one of those with a high ANA without anything going on...or it could be p...

Re: Published Research - General Sleep and RLS (WED)

Huh! I found it interesting, also, that the doctors were from Austria and I wasn't familiar with most of them. Happy to see more people researching it as well as these very interesting findings!

Re: Social Security - US

This is our life. We must embrace what we have. I like that. I can't quite do it, but I like it. Embracing what we have includes embracing the fact that I don't really believe I'm dysfunctional, that I can't quite accept that I have a chronic illness; means embracing my thoughts that I can recover,...
