I don't know, peeps ... I'm not sure ol' Wifehorn Leghorn would approve of the Mustard Lady in our bed.

Lemme drive a few thousand miles away and call her to discuss. :shock:


... and how does that make you feel?

Is that a hot dog in your pocket, or are you having leg cramps?

Objection! Honey-Mustard bbq sauce is a thing that is great on chicken.

I've heard of it on chicken strips, but I'm not much into chicken strips. I'm old and I like good old pan fried chicken.

oh jeez.
I share a bit of country wisdom about mustard, and now I struggle to ketchup.
You guys are too funny, also.
I thought my sides would cramp....
yes, yes, it's an oral dose, although that doesn't preclude it as lotion first.
For that, Frenches mustard is best.

Liquid, of course, since it conforms to the shape of a container....

ya know, yellow mustard in the Southeast US is often used for roasting prime rib.
Never seen it elsewhere in the US, deep slits poked with a filet knife, parblanched garlic cloves slid in, butcher twine pulling it tight so it cooks evenly, slathered with yellow mustard, heavy dose of kosher salt, cracked black, chopped rosemary, roast to 118 internal

and I never got cramps.

I would be grateful to any science gurus and skeptics who might consider weighing in on this product containing Resveratrol. NPR recently had a segment about it and the website has some sciency stuff explaining how it works. The research has supposedly been peer reviewed but no clinical trials have taken place.

Have you tried Gabapentin (neurontin)? I use it for restless legs syndrome and think it safer than the addictive Klonopin that is usually prescribed. I think RLS can be understood as a kind of benign seizure.

I just ordered from Amazon, so I'll give you my unbiased review when I get it and have used it.

Grab has other problems including being addictive in its own way. It also doesn't work on or for all people.

Through his specialist, the Kid has tried Neurontin along with a plethora of nerve inhibitors and opiods including and starting with Fentanyl. Hé has been weened from everything but Roxycontin. His specialist primarily treats people with SCI and terminal cancers. The Kid had SCI. At L2, 3 and 4 with severve damage to the cauda equina area. So, even though healed for the most part, the nerves are all crazy.

Opiods have been an issue and I am proud of him in this difficult journey. He and I have been searching for some solution with his doctor. Lyrica seemed promising but after a time, the weird side-effects were a big drawback.

I would love to see the Kid embrace a multi-prong approach. His ]personality is such that he will have to find his way there on his own.

RLS occurs with fibromyalgia too, also. I use Flexeril (Cyclobenzaprine)at night to prevent the muscle cramps. It is not addictive and there isn't a hangover if you find the right dose. My doctor prescribes 5 mg tablets which I cut into 1.25 mg pieces. I also use Flexeril with Walgreen's Tension Headache Relief gel caps for migraines caused by fibro.

My best wishes for the Kid. I have a "the Kid" too, also. He is our youngest son. He was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 19. Symptoms- anxiety, headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue. He doesn't take meds but gets massages as needed. He is a martial arts teacher and in athletic condition (required by his employer). His activity level prevents fatigue and most of the anxiety. For those of you with Parkinson's or other similar conditions there is a program named "Rock Steady Boxing" to improve coordination. The Kid just got certified and his workplace is the only affiliate program in Arkansas. https://rocksteadyboxing.org

Good info Tired and all. I think, but what do I know I am just mom, that a multi-prong approach might result in a better outcome. Massage, the right meds, some meditation? and an exercise regime.

The Kid now walks, though much like a giant praying manthis, causing syrain and stress on muscles not intended for that purpose. On his good days he helps do yard work, walks the god, rides a bike and might even mow the yard. On bad says, which are often, he can hardly navigate from the bed to bathroom.

But achieving pain control is a process. I understand that. So I very much appreciate any suggestions to share with him so he can in turn share with his doctor.

At one time both my kitties and doggie were on GABA. The kitties loved it, they would all come running when it was dosing time. But Xavier, our pug, hated it. He would run and hide, squirm, spit it out...he really hated it. When we finally got a dose aboard, he’d zone out, running into walls and things. The vet changed his medication.

I tried it last night and this morning on my very painful gluteus maximus area (sciatic pain), and to my surprise it seems to be helping. Will see if it's just a fluke.
