I had been on a medication (mirapex) which I thought I could never get off of. I tried many times and my symptoms got worse each time I tried over the years and I thought it was really helping my restless leg syndrome. For my 2014 New Year's resolution, I decided I really needed to try to get off of it again. I really needed to know if it was causing the symptoms that continued to keep me weak, etc and unable to function. I tapered off of it for months and just lived with the awful effects of withdrawal. Once I stopped it completely, I still had some issues, but over time and with working on my diet and other little changes, I was suddenly better and had no more restless leg also!! The fog lifted, I no longer had the awful weakness and I have had no paralysis for three months!!!
I am ready to get back to work with my writing, but I still need to take it easy because I continue have exercise intolerance, blood pressure issues and heart arrhythmia issues. After all, I still do have Periodic Paralysis, but it is definitely under better control, all by natural means.
Today's blog is something I wrote awhile back on our Periodic Paralysis Support, Education and Advocacy Group. It is time again to post it on our board and on our blog. We make no apologies for our philosophy, which has changed and saved many lives. It is posted on our logo: "Changing Lives naturally":
