APPOINTMENT WITH PSYCHIATRIST

I seem to be bombarding you poor guys tonight, but as I live alone and I have no one interested, I guess I'm feeling a little lonely tonight so you're it. I have a skype appointment tomorrow with the psychiatrist. I think it's mainly because my GP is unsure what medication she should

prescribe for my bipolar that won't interfere with my restless legs.

I'm seriously hopeful that she will have some magic wand that will allow me to go off Sifrol as I am seriously concerned regarding augmentation at this point in time. Please wish me luck.

Best wishes. Ive found that emotions can affect RLS as well as sugar, salt, too little exercise, too much exercise, sleep position, foot injuries, back injuries. We are all different and I hope you get a good answer soon.

I do wish you luck. It's a good day when a doc is actually able to straighten out a problem for us. And 'bombard away'. For me, this forum is more helpful than people who are close to me. I'm pretty much on my own re healthcare solutions (probably because I know more than most of my family-they come to me). I do have a good friend that wants to help but he is from the "Do what the doctor says, he knows best" school of thinking. If I did that I would no longer be here! Take care irina xx
