Re: Calf muscles cramping etc.= WED?

wow, you got a case of it.. that's harsh. It's hard to get through the days when everything seems to be out of control. The sleep study sounds like a good plan, it would be nice if they were able to make some suggestions to help sleep at night. With regards to the pain in your legs it is hard to fig...

Re: Medical Alert Card

I was wondering how we might go about changing the name on th card to wed instead of rls, it seems to be taken more seriously. Ideas?

Re: Newbie on requip

Don't know if the following will be helpful but I have the medical facts sheet from the pharmacy and it does say the following; "If you are using this medication for RLS, take this medication by mouth, usually once daily with or without food, 1- 3 hours before bedtime or as directed by your doc...

Re: Newbie on requip

I was told it had a sedating effect (not on me) anyway, the suggestion was right before i was ready to climb in, for that reason. I think it's likely a different thing with each person. Might be better to err on the side of caution for the first night though. If you are ready for bed and you get sle...

Re: posts

Welcome aboard! Some of the things that help some people are getting up and moving around, doing gentle stretches, hot baths, ice packs between the legs, doing something that requires you to mentally focus on something else like games that make you think, relaxation techniques. Avoiding certain type...

Re: Can you think your way out of an RLS episode?

When i read this question i was very intrigued and my initial response was not likely. However i have always prided myself on being able to go through painful things without the aid of meds, like tooth extractions, setting bones, shoulder re-setting, stitches etc. So it seems that if i could relax o...

Re: What do you think people did with RLS before medications

I wonder what is happening with the person who was hospitalized, boy they can make it so, much worse with their drugs and then their insistence on routines being stiff-- the same for everyone. (they med you up, piss off the rls/wed and then tell you to go to bed, in a room with like 4-6 others and i...

Re: Early RLS? Or something else

One other thing my wife also had a frozen shoulder, i thought she was going to loose it! Wow that was harsh. anyway did they give you meds or do surgery on yours? How is it now? This may bring on or increase the feelings associated with the rls/wed. Also as i'm sure you've already read, at times of ...

Re: Early RLS? Or something else

Frankie Glad to see you on, I'm a 45 year old guy. Keep in mind i can only speak of what I've read or experienced, as i'm only another rls/wed sufferer. OK, I have a question about the calf shakes, is this a physical manifestation or a feeling you are speaking of? I've noticed that there are a very ...
