Hi Ruby

Well, I must say I'm glad you had the day off, like a PRINCESS I might add. That Mother's Days gift was a good one. Only wished it had done more for you. I know your loosing sleep is starting to add up in a huge way. I'm with you, you know that. I tried a drug holiday, it wasn't working anyway. Seem...

Hi jumpy,

Hi JumpyOwl, You and I have spoken before. (post under definition of pain) I think I might have been in the second week of total sleep depravation. You were trying, kindly, to support and share with me. However, I could not even type well enough at the time to make sense. Over the course of 3 1/2 we...

vitminam and drug companines

I just wanted to throw in 2 cents. I want to throw a hug your way and hope, at least a pray that all will get better soon for you. I do have a book that you might find interesting about vitamins and herbs. I've owned my copy for years, so I cannot give you an updated price. It's called A Prescriptio...

welcome

Welcome to the club guitar202. Ever wake up and feel as though your legs climbed mountains all night. Yup, I'd say your one of us. I wondered for the longest time....I stretch so often, shouldn't I be more limber? This is a great site for all levels of RLS. There is some great information here. It's...

CURE?

I think most of us will tell you for free that there is no cure for RLS. There are many levels of RLS. I'm a lifer, 40 yrs old and already at an extreme level, probably accelarated by breaking my leg/ankle 10 yrs ago. Before the break, vitamins, hot baths, and stretching worked for me. Not any more....

Thanks Joyce

Hi Joyce. Thanks for your input. Believe it or not I have never done a sleep study, nor have I been offered one. The reason is that I know that my RLS is a family trait. Both Mom and Dad suffer to some degree. There are at least 7 of us, that I know of right now, that have RLS. Two, maybe three of u...

sorry ended too soon. Your question is a great one. I often wonder what the effect of Mirapex is going to do. For now the reflux meds. are protectional and I am careful with them. You know Glaxosmithkline has 3 research studies going on in the USA. I'm thinking about throwing these kinds of question...

Hi skoik, Yes I am careful to read the warnings on medications. I was surprised to find as many as I did........Parkinson's medications were listed on several things. You are right about acid meds.. sinus meds., other stomach meds.. I always try to look up any new medication they try on me, which ma...

Thanks Ben

Hi Ben, Thanks so much for your support and the suggestion of the herb. I will be honest and tell you that Natural is OUT for me right now. I've been in an attack since the middle of Feb.. And needles, I just had to laugh out loud. Your the forth person in the last week to discuss that path. You are...

no thanks needed

No thanks needed Ruby, I feel that since we're in the same boat.....we should take turns rowing. I know I can't do it on my own, all the time. It is a wonderful thing to be able to lighten the load. It's a gift when others know where you stand, maybe even walk in our shoes. Ruby, I am sorry to hear ...
