White noise sounds like a good idea, Deb. Have you tried that, leggo?

Re: It's settled! Seeing specialist!

Congrats on the working out and eating healthily. Could be completely unrelated...while elevated liver enzymes can be many things, they are often associated with unidentified auto-immune disorders. Hubbie had them for 10 years, along with other odd problems such as a tic in his eye that lasted a yea...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

Valerian doesn't help most of us - and can cause other issues. I would agree with Rustsmith to take none of them for now. The OTC sleep aids are not designed for RLS and at best you are wasting your money, at worst you are inadvertently making the RLS worse. Taking some time off from these might imp...

Re: It's settled! Seeing specialist!

So happy to read this. The tenor is that of another person - you found a new (or old) you there, it sounds like. I have always liked him. I worry, though, that we put these docs on such a pedestal that they cannot possibly meet our expectations. Yet, he seems to, or come close, most of the time. He ...

Re: Very good article on Opioids & chronic pain

this is just me musing....but seems to me that one thing many of those addicted in the US have in common is that they are in crappy places with crappy job prospects and who feel little hope and joy in the world. It is a scary world for many. I guess I think that the stats are elevated in some areas ...

Re: Issues feel insurmountable

I used to swim every night around 9 PM; but, it was before my WED was everyday. But, I rarely seemed to have RLS at the time.

Looks like 2 1/3 mg of suboxone works almost 8 hours sleep last night :D


Wonderful! That is much better than before. I, personally, am thrilled with any incremental changes that reduce meds and cost.

Re: Doctor Rant

I guess I've been lucky - my PCP has been an unwilling participant in the opioid prescription business for 3 years. Your dry sense of humor kills me! :lol: So sorry you had to go through this. The medical establishment can be sooo condescending and patronizing. I fired a PCP awhile ago bc she would...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

Yes. My dignity hurts a lot with this illness! I wonder if I'll eventually be banned from costco pharmacy, maybe even have my membership revoked! :lol: actually not so funny... On the good news front I got my sleep study and med records from my sleep dr. It doesn't say anything bad about me. It act...
