You Heard It Here First!

One of the benefits of my job is that I get paid to scan the news.  What could be better for a news junkie like me?

Well, today I hit the medical news jackpot!  In fact, this information actually came to me.  Electronically.

Today I learned about a whole new syndrome, that well, will have just about everybody shaking in their pants with excitement.

Restless Genital Syndrome.  RGS.

According to my exhaustive (5 second) web research, the man to go to if you have it is Dr. Waldinger.  (There are some things you just can’t make up.)

I can’t wait for the commercials.

  1. Is that what they’re calling male politicians now?

  2. I have heard of this before, though as PSAS. A few years ago there was an article in one of the major newspapers — The Washington Post, maybe? I don’t think it was the NYT, but …. anyway, the woman had asked to have her story told, because it was such a horrible thing to have, and how it was something that needed to be let out of the closet, so to speak. If I remember the story correctly, there were accounts from medical circles on how it had been treated — everything from removing the clitoris, to injections to deaden nerves …

    It’s apparently a very debilitating issue. Not to be funny, but it is not unlike having a strong itch in the middle of your back that you can’t scratch … it was quite a horrifying story really.

  6. Elyse, I think you just diagnosed me. I am going to share this with my wife. She has many many questions.

  7. Another made-up ailment manufactured by the pharmaceutical industry. This country is so soft. We’re like Rome before it collapsed.

    Hilarious Elyse. I get restless legs in dialysis and take medication – there must be some meds for Restless Genitals.

  9. Is heat or ice recommended? Or are they just happy to have some action regardless of the form?

    Reminds me of an old joke : “I have a medical condition, where I have an orgasm, every time I sneeze.” “What do you take for it?” “Pepper.”

  11. I think the other term for restless genital syndrome is “arousal.” Call me crazy.

  16. This may be a “bonus” finding. Take it up with your employer.

    Who knows where this comment string will lead? Perhaps a good thing that it’s still morning.

  22. My first complaint about this post… is that I can’t enlarge the “Flasher” image to see the facial expressions of the two people’s observations. … and I didn’t want to attempt googling “classy flasher pics”. A real shocker, I’m sure. lol

    Secondly… this sounds sort of like what men have… except it’s flipped. Where women with RGS experience near-orgasmic sensations yet AREN’T longing for or fantasizing about having sex… Men are longing for and fantasizing about having sex because they AREN’T experiencing orgasmic sensations. (I find it truly telling that the writer had to specify that, while these women are wanting intercourse, they aren’t longing for sex… so she’s smoking, but she didn’t inhale? Got it! Also reminds me of 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” with how he is “Into having sex” yet, not “into making love”.)

    Third complaint… that I didn’t come up with the term “Blue Walls” first…

    Fourth complaint… that psuedophedrine doesn’t help with Vasocongestion.

    Fifthly… (spelling?).. “Restless genital syndrome makes a woman often completely desperate.”… I believe I speak for the Y-chromosomed population when I say: “Welcome”

    Sixth complaint…
    That, “Ants in your pants?”
    “No! I have RGS, you insensitive prick!” could be a potential conversational exchange now. (The pun wasn’t intentional, but it was a bonus!)

    Seventh complaint… that I’ve run out of time to keep this going!! Thank you for this, Elyse!! Awesome find!!

  25. What a case that would make for med students’ clinical work-ups on fake patients. Talk about getting stuck with an unusual chief complaint!
