I am back, It's stitch!!!!!

Anything on your mind that isn't about WED/RLS? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

I am back, It's stitch!!!!!

Postby stitch » Mon Sep 24, 2012 4:11 pm


I everyone! I haven't been around for awhile. Since my Maripex is working for me and I am feeling good I just left. But I am still in so much pain in my back that I can't walk with out my walker. I can't stand up straight, pretty bent over and I hate it. I keep going to phycial therapy and it work for awhile.
I have a call into my surgeon and I am getting some information together for him to see if he wants to see me and if there is anything he can do for me. I just feel something is wrong but don't know what it is. After 5 back surgeries I am sorry to say I am in so much pain. I know the surgeries were successful but it's the scar tissue and nreve damage that is cauring all this pain. But I have to say the maripex work's for me. And I am one of the lucky one's that I can take pain meds with no problem. Anyway just thought I would touch base with everyone to let you all know that at 76 I am doing good.
Take care everyone and never give up. StitcHi,h

Hi Stitch... lovely to hear from you again and delighted that mirapex is working so well for your WED symptoms.

But oh your back pain, how awful for you. I hope your doctor can help with this.
Delighted to know that you are otherwise well. :)

Hey, Stitch! Good to see you; sorry the pain is still so bad, though. Good think the Mirapex is working for you, though.

Hey Stitch how are you doing? It is good to see you back again. So sorry about your back but glad the Mirapex is working for your RLS. I am also on Mirapex and most of the times it does work but you know how this disease can rear its ugly head whenever it wants to.

Were you in the process of selling your house the last time we talked? It know that was about three years ago. Boy how time flies when you are having fun LOL.
Have a good evening and we will chat later
