Please share your experiences, successes, and failures in using non-drug therapies for WED/RLS (methods of relief that don't involve swallowing or injecting anything), including compression, heat, light, stretches, acupuncture, etc. Also under this heading, medical interventions that don't involve the administration of a medicine to the body (eg. varicose-vein operations, deep-brain stimulation).

Fast Twitch

Postby » Mon Dec 25, 2006 9:54 pm

There is a relation between the percentage of fast twitch fibers in one's skeletal muscle composition. The higher the perecntage the more of a chance to experience RLS. Don't limiit RLS to your legs. RLS is a total body expereince. The Ocular muscles are going through "RLS" when you have those racing thoughts at night. It really is your ocular muscles moving fast behind your closed eyelids. Your percentage of fast twitch versus slow twitch is parallel throughout your body. Get a muscle biopsy and have them look at the percentage of fast versus slow figers in a sample. This is done with world class athletes. In RLS your fast twitch fibers are "Expressing" themselves in response to and activity or lack of activity. The percentage of fast twicth fibers in your skeletal muscle make-up also determine attention and production behaviors. RLS is a form of ADD or ADHD, which really are Mulitple Attention Abilities. We claim something is a disorder or Syndrom when we don't understand it in a funtional manner, a positive functional manner. RLS people usually don't need a lot of sleep...... What are the postive behaviors that occur because of or due to RLS?

How about this strange link? I'm using Requipe for the calming of the "Racing mind" at night, which is caused by fast twitch ocular muscles.

Question? Where does Parkinsons fit in with the stimulation of fast twitch fibers.

RLS, attention, fast-paced ativities . . . sprint or explosion athletes, abstract base readers as opposed to detail readers. See where RLS fits in the whole experiential, perceptual, and expressice body experience and you'll find many windows in RLS.

Separate the activity as jumpy legs and you'll know yourself as that frog leg in high school biology labs being stimulated by that battery.

Happy twitching.................
