RLS and Neuro

Well today I had my Neurology appointment. Went to see this new consultant for the Restless legs, he asked me the normal 101 questions what, why and if. He took pages and pages of notes, did pin prick tests all over my body, just for him to tell me at the end that I have Restless Leg Syndrome, quite amazing considering I was referred to him for, ahhhh lets think, Restless Leg Syndrome. So just ove r an hour for the appointment and he told me something we all know. Only change is that he increased my meds, only problem with them is they make you want to gamble and gives you nausea.

Now I am exhausted and think I can hear my bed calling, will try the sofa first.

  • Keep your chin up hun! It's a good job you have a sense of humour! Lol x

  • Just wondered what medication you are on. I have had restless legs for quite a few years now and I am on Prednisolone, but thend to find it works great or a while then gradually becomes less effective, so they up the dose, this has happened twice now so wondered if you are on any thing that works better. thanks
