codeine

I recently had a procedure done and was given Tylenol 3's with codeine. I take Sinemet nightly for RLS, it has given some relief, but symptoms are returning. Last night, after taking my Sinemet, and going to bed, I felt a strong RLS episode coming on, so I took the Codeine, just testing to see if it...

I hadn't really noticed before, but now I do. I think toning the orange down would be a good idea. It's too bright for exhausted people like us. But I love the rest of the set-up and all the people who visit here. Tina

My mom has RLS just like you are describing. She also uses ice for relief. And my RLS is a little different than hers, and that is normal, because it might be a little different for everyone. Tina

I went to my two regular doctors about the strange sensations, before I knew what it was. I thought I might be crazy and so did they. But, when I saw a rhematologist about some other problems, I brought it up and she knew right away what it was and we started treatment and I have had some relief. I ...

I think things like surgery does stimulate RLS. I think mine was triggered by blood being drawn a few weeks ago. It's just my opinion, I don't know if that has been proven by the researchers. I have found relief from some meds like Sinemet or Neurontin, others find relief from other types of medicat...

Sugs, the water balloon is removed, leaving no uterus lining at all and it won't come back. I would ask your doctor about Thermal Eblation. Ofcourse they have to rule out other causes for the bleeding 1st. I had an ultrasound and several pap smears. A biopsy was scheduled, but cancelled because when...

I wish the name for this condition was not Restless Leg Syndrome, because our legs are restless as a result of the torturous sensations running throughout our bodies. It would be an entirely different thing if the only symptom was leg movement, but that is what everyone thinks it is. Some people mov...
