I'm the web developer for these blogs. I'll talk about technical issues with the blogs and forums, and point out whatever other cool things on the web I run across regarding diabetes.

  • Hi. My mother, myself and one of my daughters all have this. I have found that Dolomite tablets or powder work wonders within less than half an hour. It's a natural combination of magnesium and calcium. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available in New Zealand any more so if anyone knows where i can get it i'd be pleased to know. The magic ingredient is the Magnesium so i've bought straight magnesium tablets, but doesn't work as well.

  • I'm a 33 yr old male. healthy, in good physical shape... not on any mediacation... & yet, I suffer from RLS. It's NOT just something that affects "older" people. I've had this for quite a few years, But the past year or 2 has become more severe, & frequent. To the point of keeping me awake with NO sleep at all. I have bouts with RLS 3-5 times a week. Sometimes only for an hour or 2 when I 1st go to bed, & sometimes I can't get it to stop at all. Unfortunately, I never know what nights are going to be bad. I've done all kinds of things to try to releive it, but none seem to REALLY help. Here's a list of my trials.... Stretching before bed time. (works occasionally) Doing deep knee bends for several minutes, or walking prior to going to bed. ( again, only occasional success) Taking Iron Supplements ( No real difference) Warm /cold therapy (Doesn't seem to make any difference) I've just started to read more about this affliction, & have found out certain medications might help. Including ... Anti Parkinson's meds Valium, or other anit anxeity neds Opiod pain meds like codeine, Oxycodone, or Hydrocodone Muscle relaxers like Soma, Anti seizure medication.... I CAN say from experience, that when I had oral surgery, & other dental work done, & was prescribed vicoprofen, (hydrocodone/ibuprofen) that I slept fine, & had NO RLS trouble. However, that's the only medicine I've taken, & only for the short recovery time. BUT... I noticed a marked difference in the symptoms while taking the pain reliever. There really may be something to look into with this sort of treatment. Not everyone is comfortable taking drug therapy, & some may look for "alternative" or "Holistic" ways of treating RLS. I tried the "Natural" approach over the past few years.... & so far haven't come up with a REAL help. I don't know if any particular type of therapy is better than another. It probbaly depends on the person. All I know is personally, I had releif with hydrocodone, & purely by coincidence. I am going to look into the other treatments as well... & try to find what works best for me. I just wanted to share my own experience with RLS, & my findings / treatments with you. Remember, You're NOT the only one with this!!!

  • I am 48 year old woman, having this disorder for more than 30 years. When I was a little girl, I suffered from it mostly once a year. Sometimes cought while waching a movie making impossible to see 'the end'. Unfortunately I am having this trouble almost every night (in summer)for three years. I am on antidepressant treatment and know that antidepressants make it worse. But I have to take them because my irritable bowel syndrome only releives with antidepressant treatment. Three years almost every night... If I am lucky I fall asleep at 05.00 am. But till that time I have to walk and walk and walk... When it is summer, when I put on weight it gets worse. I describe it as "my legs have a mind, and they are having an anxiety atack." or "my head wants to sleep, my legs want to hang around". I have tried anti-Parkinsonian medications, tranqulizers, aloe vera massages, hot and cold bahts with no effect. I can not take anti-epileptic medications because I need full concentration in work. Did I get used to it? If I can sleep next day in the day time, it's OK, because I can make myself full awake and do some housework or art work. But in the week days, I have to work full time and have no time for a nip. I have very understanding co-workers. I can't go to work before 11.30 am. I can tell you much more about my RLS, but I don't want to take your time. Kind regards. N.

  • I suffered RLS and aching from my varicose veins. I was fortunate enough to have found Dr. Ted King in Chicago to treat my veins. Through ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and a well established venous protocol known as COMPASS, I have had complete relief of my achiness and RLS. Dr. King says that the company he works for has noticed RLS resolution with treatment for years and that it makes sense. He says that the broken veins in my legs were full of blood with low oxygen and inflammatory junk that was just pooling in my legs. If you are suffering from the symptoms that I had, visit their website at www.veinclinics.net. They have some information about Restless Leg syndrome that will explain this better than I can. Thanks again Dr. King!

  • My mother and sister and myself had RLS for years which made for many bad sleeping nights. We finally found a doctor who knew what we where suffering from and perscribed a medicine called Mirapex 0.25 and my sister and I have led a new life since. My mom God bless her had past away before we found out about this medicine. Please see your doctor and mention this to him as many doctors do not know about it and many do not care as they do not realize what suffering you go through.
    RLS versus varicose veins

  • I am a 42 year old female with serious varicose veins. Cosmetically only, there are no physical disabilities. I lived with it for 20 years together. I weigh 103 pounds, and am a twin with a female fraternal. Both of us and 4 other sibs are short and skinny. I am the only child with varicose veins. I have had them since I was fifteen years old. I have worked retail and been on my feet a lot. Also, I was an Insurance agent for 16 years and then began cleaning houses. I love the excercise of my work.

    Developed a twitch in right forefinger two years ago. Now, it happens to my thumb, too. I have the twitch daily, even when I am at rest. Began to show my 13 year old daughter when we would watch TV together. I don't anymore, but I show my husband. I feel a little weak and shakey in morning until I get to moving around. My lower back is also weak.

    My concern, me being the only female who carried on the "veins" with me, from both Mom and Dad, why am I feeling needle pains from my ankles to my shoulders? Is it more than RLS? Most bizarre area is the genital area, from the anus to the vaginal area.(not fun) I have needles and sharp pins, which make me jump and then makes my legs contract and jerk. My shoulders contract and hips are jerking spontaneously, every 30-40 seconds when at rest in afternoon.

    I started taking Calcium one month ago and nutrients as advised by a doctor friend. It has been getting worse, but is not intolerable, yet.

    I would also include that cleaning houses for a living,I am very active and feel great while moving. Have had a few back strains in the last year, but can't specifically relate these syptoms to any injury.

    Question to you would be, do I need a neurologist referal from my HMO, or sit tight and wait to see if it is just another old age ailment?
