I've been having a really hard time with the rls...my feet,legs,pelvis and lower back. I'm taking co codamol at night to get a little bit of sleep but it wakes me up when the pills wear off. I still won't take the dopamine drugs. I know my ssri has probably made things worse but I've been on them for a year almost and have no intention of giving them up. They have literally saved my life . And I feel any side effects should have stopped by now anyway. My diet has gone completely to crap. I'm living off chocolate,biscuits,nuts and energy drinks to get me through work. All bad I know. But I can't seem to get control. It must be about two years since I had an rls free 24 hours. I am going to see a nutritionist tomorrow. She also does the koren chiropractic techniques. I have seen her before a few years ago and it did help but couldn't afford to keep going. Don't tell me to look at the site with drug and foods to avoid....I don't believe what I eat and drink has any effect on my rls. Although it is impacting on my general health. That feels better ....getting it all out!!!! I've been saving up a bit and mean to blast it with whatever help I can find out there. Nothing ventured and all that! And I need help especially with the eating. I got myself lost!
