2 people out of 4 in my family have rls. 2 now have high blood pressure,
One is borderline diabetic. We are all physically active. 3 of us eat healthy,
Adam eats like a horse any and every food known to mankind. He is not the
one with medical problems. I developed high blood pressure and I think
that depression is coming on. I often think that if life is like this for the rest
of my life and it will keep getting worse, then why be alive? I'm not going to
ever feel good again with those medicines. I just read about people gaining
a lot of weight and people being sick on medicines and that people get relief
for a little while, then they have augmentations. People are on pumps for
this and taking after surgery medicines on a daily basis. It seems like life
is only about finding some relief and mostly getting some sleep at night.
As I read back, people were standing up propped against a bed, or people
walk around the whole night or people feel like harming themselves and some
do it actually. Doctors don't know much about it. There is no funding for it.
Excuse me for getting a little down in the dumps for this. I don't find a lot
of hope on here. It works out if you can stay at home and sleep but what
about just a few of us who have to go to work very early the next morning for
the entire day? We can't be sitting in a tub or pacing all night. I am sorry for
ranting and raving but if anyone knows of some good relief that lasts other
than being put into a coma - then tell me. How am I supposed to work like
this when working is my only choice? I am sick of no sleep. Why can't
a doctor, employer or scientist not help this many people?
