Good day to all!! I have amazing news. For the first time in forever, if not ever, I have had complete relief of my RLS symptoms when going to bed. Last night, was night number 12. Prior to bed, I did have a few flair ups a couple times, but I just got up and did something, it was day time..
Now my RLS is not the painful type, and I remember being around 8 years old when it started. I was 25 when I was diagnosed and was prescribed Sinemet. I took it for maybe a month, learned about augmentation so I stopped. That is it. I have researched the piriformis and sciatic nerve causes. Have had many blood tests done and drs have said everything is good. Ferritin levels are fine, blah blah blah. I tried magnesium lotion, made from the crystals, and water. Didn't help. Tried magnesium, calcium, D3. Didn't help.
I also suffer from sleep apnea, and a spine that is very twisted so sleeping is not my forte, lol. Three weeks ago, for some reason I stopped at the vitamin area of walmart and grabbed a bottle of 500 mg magnesium tablets. Looked around for any other sleep things. I found Valerian. Thought, why not. I also grabbed a bottle of Stresstabs, a b complex with copper, zinc, selenium, lyposene as well. No help. But I figured I would continue. Then, 12 days ago, I went to Superstore, (I never go to Superstore), and ended up in the organic section, which has homeopathic supplements. I looked around and found a box called Rest well. I looked at the ingredients....... Valerian, Passion flower, and something else but I stopped at Passion flower. Looked around and found a tincture. I bought it and came home, tried it and IT WORKED!!! 12 Days Straight!!!!
Because of my spine being the way it is, I take Celebrex for Osteoarthritis. So....in the morning I take the Celebrex and Stresstabs, and and hour before bed I take the magnesium and Valerian. Then 20 min before bed I take the passion flower tincture. I will try to update after a month with what I hope is promising.
