saying hello

Postby leggo_my_legs » Fri Jul 06, 2018 6:48 am

Hi all,

I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I've had my 3 month anniversary on my new job and it's going well. I have 3 more months to go before I get off new employee probation. That has been my main focus these past few months.

RLS wise, I am doing more or less ok on 5-10 mg oxycodone per night. I am functional, thought not always feeling rested. Functional is better than I was before. For example, I do not feel that poor sleep quality is messing with my emotions daily, but at the same time I don't feel as rested as I'd like. In other words, I wish it could be better, but it's tolerable and ok.

Often I wake up on my back, which is how I fall asleep, which I feel like is a good sign regarding my sleep quality. I am incredibly grateful for the oxycodone and the support I receive here. I am still seeing Dr. B. I have family in the LA area so it's not so bad flying there twice a year or so.

Thinking of you all, will try to be around a little more.

Hey - I was thinking of you the other day. We are finally back in LA - hopefully the last move for at least another year, lol.

I guess I'd echo your experience. I am functional most times, but rarely rested and sometimes still crappy. Not sure it gets better than that for some of us. I keep trying, though!

This is exactly the symptom where dipyridamole seems to do the best for me. Maybe the next time you see Dr. B you might ask him about adding a small dose of dipyridamole to your meds.

I did - he wasn't at ALL interested. But, it was when it very first was being discussed...maybe next visit he'll have had time to think more about it.
