About Me: Female, 28, Swansea, United Kingdom, member since Apr 2010
I'm 23 I live in Ystalyfera in the Swansea Valley South Wales UK, I love Art, Computers, Mobile Phones & Languages, I suffer with RMD - self diagnosed by research, I'm 4ft 10", I have no faith in doctors & don't like explaining anything to them, I have 7 GCSE's & severa
[More]l other qualifications in ICT, Literacy, Numeracy & a bundle of NOCN's, I also attended a Business Buddy Course when I was 18 (under age to do the course) so received a specially produced certificate. I love soothing things, this includes acupuncture.
Ignore the doctor that laughed in your face about your RMD! how awful! my therapist was the only one i dared tell, and she just brushed it off, which also made me feel horrible. nobody seems to know about this disorder or how much suffering is caused by it. i am posting a question about treatments for adult RMD to the neurology forum--as dr park from the sleep disorder forum suggested I do, since he couldn't answer the question (the SLEEP doctor doesn't even know). i'm going to post the answer, if any, to the sleep disorder forum. Strangely, I can't get a web address for it, so just google "Rhythmic Movement Disorder, Can't take it anymore" and the link should take you there.
