It's been a while since I've posted here. I am so deeply moved and sympathetic toward all of you who suffer the same disease that I do. After many years of this hellish affliction I can't tell you that I have any kind of cure although some relief by taking vitamin supplements. I was on all kinds of medications; Gabipantin, Ropinerole, Levodopa and many others that I cannot tolerate. The side effects are so horrible that I would rather suffer the jerking and jumping pains and sleepless nights than to have my life being made miserable with the side effects. I don't know if any of you have noticed personality changes, mood swings, rage, anger, nausea and more. I can't deal with those. But with the vitamin supplements, there is some relief. I take Calcium/Magnesium/zinc, potassium, iron, B12 sublingual, and Vitamin B complex. I also have been prescribed a pain killer (Norco) that seems to make the jerking milder. I hope this helps someone. I know the misery of this affliction and I also recommend that you keep calling out to God. He is the only one who really helps me. When I praise Him and thank Him it makes a BIG difference, especially when I have severe leg cramps along with the jerking. By the way, If you are having cramps, it can be a lack of Potasium or 6you are not drinking enough water. When the cramp starts, get a BIG glass of water and gulp it down. The cramp will go away. Blessing to you all. I am thinking of you as I'm up in the night. Think of me too.
