    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Anyone suffering from RLS or PLMD should research EXCITOTOXINS. Those are additives that some food companies put into foods, such as MSG, aspartame. I suffered from RLS for over 30 years. After reading a book by Dr Russell Blaylock, I tried avoiding those additives. In one week, my symptoms improved by 90%. I also have two friends who have been helped by this information. It has changed my life. I can now sleep. You can either buy his book (paperback is $13) or do the research online for free. These additives are implicated in A.L.S., Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. I searched for years for a solution to my problem, and I tried EVERYTHING, but avoiding these substances actually worked. Please give it a try.
