Also if you like Coke (regular) has potassium in it like bananas and oranges and gets into system a little quicker as the sugar helps to carry it.

Fighter, are you replacing your sugar with aspertaine? If so cut that crap out! My flares have dropped down to a very manageable level since doing that.

Dianne,

I'm sorry bout the coke but with my fibro and lupus I live on coke due to the nausea and I'm insulin dependent. So that's why I mentioned it. I just no it's got a lot of calcium and would help but don't do it if your not use to drinking it, and diabetic.

The neurontin(gabapentin) for my rls helps alot. However, heat is the best thing most of the time. I take a heating blanket and wrap it around my legs. I have had terrible leg pain today myself. Although, I get some relief through pain meds, neurontin and heat, I still have alot of pain. I look like a hunched up old lady when I get up. Not a pretty sight! Sometimes my dogs bark at me!!!!!

Lockman: I knew I was doing something wrong-no gin. My doc says I cannot drink with my meds. Maybe he doesn't know the old gin trick?lol

Make yourself a rice sock. Take an old tube sock (with no holes in it), fill it with dry white rice, and tie it off. You can pop this in the microwave for about a minute or so and you have an instant moist heat pack that can be wrapped snugly around your legs. I used to take one to work all the time.

My doctor tried to take me off coffee. I eventualy had to put the kibosh on that. Without coffee I just don't function. As for frequency of gin and tonics... I might have one every few months. Many of my meds are of the "don't drink with" variety as well but I risk it now and again. Better that then wind up with malaria!
