Not been around for a few weeks due to a stomach bug that just wouldn't go away. Having had a fundoplication due to severe acid reflux and hernia I now can't vomit so these bugs stay in me longer....it's been a nasty few weeks but I'm slowly beginning to feel better HOWEVER I've become really really restless! I suffered with restless legs years ago but it went as soon as it came but for the last week I'm so restless...legs, arms, then I feel itchy.
It's mainly when I go to bed but sometimes it creeps in in the daytime too. I'm at my wits end!!! I could scream, pull my hair out..anything to relieve this restlessness and irritability!
I called my GP and funnily enough I'm already on 3 of the 4 recommended meds that they use to ease it.....ease it? Nope! I'm on maximum dose too. I've also tried sleeping pills, diazepam and even a swig of night nurse but to no avail. Went to bed at 11.30 last night but had no sleep till gone 5.30am as I was up and down like a yoyo.
Anyone else suffered this? How did you get rid of it? Being so darn irritable it makes SOB worse.
Sorry, just noticed I've written loads....I'll bore you no more!
Love and health to all
