Hey Zach Cyndi was right in bring up medication. A lot of the meds we take cause very dry mouth, which causes problems like you are having. I've had the same thing happen to me. And, I bet if we took a poll, we'd find that a lot of us have those same problems. It isn't fair! You are a young man and ...

Oh, Lynne, I know exactly how you feel!! And, several of the rest of you have echoed my feelings exactly!!! During my two year quest to find an answer to my numbing left side, I was told by well-meaning friends (and family) to go to another doctor (which I ultimately did). However, I was right where...

Lyndarae, I am so sorry I missed this post. I haven't been on as much lately--I do have an excuse--I am working outside my home again. And, I have been in the hospital. However, I am really, really sorry I missed this. I just want to say how very sorry I am that you have been having such a bad time ...

Hi Kbuff Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry you have a need for this place. But, since you do have RLS, you've found a great place for information and support! I had back surgery on 9/12/06--spinal fusion T6 through T12 (thoracic spine). I have 12 screws and 2 rods in my back. For a month or so followi...

Oh, my sweet Ruby! I wish I could take away all of your pain!!! I wish you'd never heard the term "fibro!!!" I wish all that you needed was a squirt from the "oil can" like our friend, the Lion from Oz. Or, that you just needed more straw, like me---the Scarecrow (I always treasure the one you sent ...

Well, you are right, Lynne--cold weather does help kill the germs. It would have been horrible here if we hadn't had all that cold, I suppose--because, even with all that cold, flu is rampant here! Everyone is sick with one kind or another--some even on to round 3 or 4! When I was sick the other day...

One of my favorite quotes is from the movie "Parenthood." I don't know if anyone has watched it or not--it's probably at least 10 years old or older. It starred Steve Martin and Mary Steenbergen. They are parents of 4 kids (I think) and life just isn't that easy for them. Their kids are cute, but th...

Reporting from southern Illinois--just an 1 SE of St. Louis. We have at least 1 1/2" ice--pure ice. It's a slippery mess, but it's supposed to warm up (mid-30's--they call THAT warm?) tomorrow, and a little bit warmer Sunday. So far, no one around us has lost power--it's not that bad. But south of h...

I haven't posted a response to any of the posts, but I will to this one. Ruby, you said it so well, my friend. I came to this board one night when I was desperate for an answer, like (I'm sure) everyone who has come here. And, I have continued, over the years, to come here for one reason or another-...

Cyndi

I am SO glad you got in touch with Ruby. I knew you'd love her! She's so great, so free to give of herself--to share what's she's learned---and so willing to help others. I get the strong impression you are the same kind of gal, Cyndi.

I hope everything works out for you!

Hugs

Hey Cyndi I was coming back on here to answer your post and saw that Lynne had already started. She's right--Ruby does have fibro. They thought I did before my back surgery, but turns out, it was my back back--all those herniated discs. However, I do know that a lot of people have both fibro and RLS...

I have trouble sleeping at night due to my back surgery, as well as occasional RLS. I visited an old girlfriend in Colorado this past September. She has a Tempur-pedic memory foam mattress (king size) and insisted I sleep on it while visiting her. It was wonderful!! I would love to have one of those...
