Mon, Mar 2 11:42pm · Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Opioids in Sleep Health

I’m glad that approach has helped you. RLS is no fun, although it’s not painful, it causes many sleepless nights. However, I cannot take iron or vitamin C because I have hereditary Hemochromatosis (HH). I have to rid my blood of excess iron by way of regular phlebotomy and I have to also control it through diet. I cannot take supplemental iron, nor eat high heme iron foods, or take Vit C becase it aids iron absorption. After my HH diagnosis, and now that my iron is lower, I rarely get RLS symptoms, so, I am confused.

Apr 24, 2019 · Problems 3 months after colon resection surgery: Help in Colorectal Cancer

Hi everyone, I’ve had 2 colon resection surgeries recently, one in 2016, the other in 2017 after a routine colonoscopy detected carcinoid tumors (one each year) in the terminal ileum area of small intestine. Surgeries and recoveries went smoothly but after several months I had sharp pains off and on, in same area.
My doctor says the scar tissue can cause pain. Also, hernias can develop easily after surgeries. I have one in the navel button area and it hurts sometimes, especially if pant waistbands are snug. I had laperascopic surgery, but the cut in navel area is a tad larger than the other 2 smaller incisions. I believe having incisions in that same spot weakened it and it herniated. So, repeated incisions and scarring could be causing your pain…I would follow up.
I hope that helped, Good Luck!
