Re: Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

In case any of you haven't seen it, there is the new study that hopefully will help normalize opioid use for RLS. It is featured in this month's Nighwalkers and I believe Rustsmith posted on it a week or so ago. I joined and have had my initial interview. Sounds like they have had a good response, b...

Re: Is it Only Me ?

Some therapists are horrifying. While I do think you absolutely have to find the right one for you, there are also some that no one should go to! When I first started to deal with childhood abuse issues, I started with group therapy. I understand the importance of facing issues and then confronting ...

Re: Opioid and RLS Advocacy

If you are a Foundation member and haven't had a chance to listen to the webinar, I encourage you to do so. During the webinar, they discussed an initiative that is being taken by a group in Washington, DC on behalf of the Foundation. The group does advocacy work before Congress for "rare"...

Re: Two very different doctors' visits

Ann, That helps me to know that about your experience on oxycodone. The sleeping for 45 minutes to an hour and up for a few is what I have been doing since the dosage change. I ended up taking 5 mg at 10:00 than having to take another 1/2 at 1:30 am this morning and just now got up at 4:00 to take ...

Re: Discussion board newbie's story with meds

Some of RLS treatment is personal - both how an individual responds and the side effects, as well as what a person is willing to take/try. There is a significant number of folks who do not respond to gabapentin and related formulations. I never have. My guess is that it is related to how we experien...

Re: Shopping for mattress

There seem to be two primary options. 1. As Polar Bear mentioned, memory foam. We bought it in 2005 when I was in an augmentation nightmare. Worked very well. 2. Split twins that make a king size bed. You each have your own mattress that way. Many stores sell them with the bed supports that move the...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I have had vertigo on and off for about 15 years. The first time was the worst - woke up feeling a bit off, rolled over and then fell out of bed from the extreme dizziness. Vomited in the elevator - in a high rise and was trying to get to the hospital - and in the cab (the whole ride). Good heavens,...

I mix my kratom with juice and psyllium fiber, lol, and make a gelatinous goo that I can cut into squares and pop into my mouth easily.
