Re: How long have you had RLS/WED

I can recall my very first episode of RLS. I was sitting on the sofa and my son aged about 7 was lying on the sofa with his legs across my lap, I was rubbing his calf. These weird symptoms appeared from nowhere and I wanted to get up but that would have disturbed my son who wasn't well and trying to...

Re: bandage & socks for RLS

Welcome to the Discussion Board. It's great that this works for all of you. Many of our members do find that it helps, it sometimes helps, or indeed that there is no benefit. Do you wrap your calf after the symptoms start, how long does it take for your restless feeling to stop? And how long has thi...

Re: Nicotine Mints - Personal Success

I believe this is the first time I have read of your experience with the nicotine mints. There are various opinions on the use of nicotine. For example - There are those who believe it can help relieve rls symptoms (boosting the dopamine perhaps). Alternatively, others believe that smoking can aggra...

Re: RLS Foundation hosting a Patient Symposium

*egraves01* when I have to be in the one place for a length of time e.g. international flight... I double dose my meds. Not telling anyone else it's the way to go, just that it's what I do. I visualise people standing, sitting while jiggling, walking on the spot etc. and noone will mind. *Rustsmith*...

The above link to sleep-journal.com article is today coming up as an error - "The Page Does Not Exist"
Disappointing, as especially reading stjohnh's positive comments.

Re: Recently Diagnosed

Challenging ?? There is no doubt that this is a challenging disease. In particular because just when it 'just maybe' seems that a medication, or a cocktail of medications is working, the rug gets pulled from beneath us. We know that we are all so different, what works for one etc. and what worked fo...

Re: Neupro

1mg is now considered to be the maximum daily dose of Ropinerole for treatment of RLS. It is usually started at a dose of 0.25mg. 1mg is a very high dose to start with. There was a time when 4mg was considered ok as a Ropinerole max daily dose but it has since been agreed that 4mg is much too high d...

We here in N.I. have the same weather as the Southern end of Scotland. It's a two hour car ferry across to Scotland ... the mainland. About a two hour drive from the port to the English border, our middle boy lives in Carlisle in England just over the border. Our area of County Antrim and in particu...
