Sleepless In America

Anything on your mind that isn't about 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 took a Zyrtec a few nights ago and it did take the itching away. But created new problem. Because I wear a CPAP mask my throat and sinuses are already dried out. It just made that worse. I should have realized that. I will keep it in mind if the itching gets worse.
