Sep 21, 2016 · I had long term,low level carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty heat in Just Want to Talk

When you say low levels, what were your levels on your blood test. I just found out about 5 weeks ago that my CO level in my blood was 3.0. Investigated and found our Water Heater was leaking gas, for at least the last 10 months. In the past year I have had several medical problems. I have had 2 episodes of Transient Global Amnesia and several episodes of mild confusion. I have also had many issues of UTI symptoms with sugar and blood in my urine. Some of the UTI’s ended up not being infections, but all the symptoms and blood and sugar were there. I am wondering if these 2 issues could be related to the Carbon Monoxide I had on my blood.

I agree Jim. We all have to take the information we are given and find what works best for us. They actually want me to take 2- 300 mili pills, 3 times per day. The ones at night for my legs and the rest of the dosage to posibly help with some deep brain seizures they think i might be having. Gabapentin was originally created to be a seizure medication.
That is odd, Lynn. I had been taking Tylenol PM to help me sleep at night, and my doctor told me that it has Benadryl in it and not to take it any more for sleep. That could have been making my RLS worse. Good to know, Thanks!

May 24, 2016 · Restless Leg Syndrome in Sleep Health

I am getting great relief with Gabapentin. I have been on it for 3 to 4 weeks now. I feel like i have died and gone to heaven. I didn’t think i would ever know what it was like to sleep through the night and go from waking up anywhere from 6 to a dozen or more times a night to waking up once or even none at all. I had several nights each week that i wasn’t able to get to sleep until 4 or 5 in the morning. Getting up 4 to 6 times to stretch out my legs to try to get some releif, I tried elevating them, the heating pad, walking, a lot of days, nothing worked. I take 2- 300 mil capsules about 2 1/2 hrs before i go to bed. I am almost 60, and for the first time in my life, i feel like when i wake up in the morning, i am rested. I have never felt that before. I have suffered from restless legs, as far back as High School, never knowing what it was.

I have come across several articles saying the same thing, about the Insufficiency in the Valve of the Jugular vein. What have you found out about them. I have had 2 episodes in a 5 month time span. Would like to find some answers.
