I finished licking my wounds already.
I had my feelings hurt on here.
Moving forward, I am going to follow the rules
and stick only to the subject of RLS.
Mine has been severe lately. I have met augmentation
with my medicines so I am returning to my doctor on
Tuesday with hopes of moving to another type of medicine.
My iron levels have fallen quite a bit and I don't know why
I have had zero bleeding of any kind.
I am guessing that it's because of the medicines that I am taking
I am on Chemo and I am taking Simponi for RA. The iron
fall, I am sure, is my biggest problem.
I am telling my doctor that if he doesn't prescribe a narcotic,
I am going to the streets to get it because my life
is not worth it if I have to suffer like this.. my legs won't
settle down long enough for me to get relaxed at all.
Intense massage by a professional made it worse. I did the
acupuncture, it was a waste of time and money.
The only thing that did help was getting help stretching out my
hip flexors.. and that lasted as long as the stretch did.
I visited the chiropractor who said that my back is out. I spent
a lot of money in the past 2 months but it didn't help my back,
my legs or my wallet... the only good thing is that I walked
away with quite a bit more energy... so he was right, something
is/was out on my back.
I did get a hold of a very good pain relief pill (my daughter
gave me one of hers from her past surgery) It worked like
magic.. as a matter of fact... She offered me another and
I turned it down because she has 8 left and when those are
gone, I will be stuck in the same boat. My legs were totally still..
I was able to read a book for 25 mins before my eyes refused
to stay open. I haven't been able to do that in a long, long time.
Two months ago, I had quite the blood-clot in my leg.. It formed
because my body had so much inflammation. It didn't even hurt.
My doctor noticed the bright red and asked me if it hurt.
He then ordered a test and sure enough.. I was stuck on
my back for 10 days in the hospital waiting for it to dissolve.
My Restless Legs acted up so bad.. lucky for me, I was given
muscle relaxers that worked like a charm to settle my legs.
I slept like I missed sleeping for a week... I was actually upset
that my clot dissolved, that meant that my legs would suffer.
*they have been going nuts since.
Sorry I was such a little spoiled brat who threw a tizzy at
2 people who rubbed me the wrong way... I'm over it already.
