Progressive

Hi My name is Jan and I just noticed your post. I have a few questions that might be helpful. I've had RLS for approx. 15 or 20 years (you lose count). Does walking seems to relieve your symptoms? Does your pain feel like a deep muscle ache? Do you have trouble sitting in a chair, riding in a car, s...

poem

I, too, have often thought of my bed as a battlefield. I feel jealous of people who can sleep peacefully and dream the night away like I used to. Oh well, it could be worse. Your poem says it all!! By the way, God is in control!! Don't ever forget that!

Need to Vent

Hi Ruby Sounds like you're doing better. You've got a great idea with the problem cup. Sounds like I'm a lot like you. I've always been a people pleaser, as you say even when people are jackasses, and a "fixer" knowing that I'm not in charge--God is. Thank goodness, I'd make mess of it all! I'm doin...

Need to Vent

Ruby I replied to you a couple of days ago and just read the reply from Nadia. She's right--stress DOES make RLS worse. You do need to try to relax, but you also need to vent and that's what this site is about, isn't it? I've read several replies from you Nadia, and you sound like a great person. I ...

I've been taking Mirapex and Clonazepam for approximately 5 years. I go to a neurologist at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO and h...
