Hi Jan, thanks for the welcome. Nice to meet you and nice to be here.
Ann's post got me thinking about my sleep study.
When I was discussing the sleep study with the Neuro Doc, I told him a sleep study would never work with me. I can't sleep in hospitals, or motels or really anywhere 'cept my bed, so he gave me a couple sleeping pills to take...Ambien. So when I get there, it just so happened that my back had gone out a few weeks earlier and I had one Vicodin left that I was saving for when I needed it. So I told Eva, the Sleep Lady that I had the Ambien and that most sleep medications I'd ever taken had made my legs bother me so I was gonna take a Vicodin with it. She said...go ahead.
Then I find out that Codeine is one of the treatments for RLS. So how could I have gotten an accurate sleep study done after taking Ambien, a sedative, and Vicodin?
I don't know.
Apparently they still discovered the RLS, but I wonder how much of it was noticable under all that medication? You know, I wasn't even thinking about my leg problems. I didn't even know the RLS was keeping me from getting good sleep, once I got to sleep...matter of fact, at the time I didn't know anything about RLS. All I knew about a sleep study was they looked for Apnea (which I still can't spell).
...you have my sympathies. I must have a light case of RLS compared to what you're describing going through. I hope they get you fixed up.[/b]
