I have had RLS since I was about 16 yrs. I coped with it but in the last 3 years, it is interfering with my sleep. I keep waking up with the dreadful sensation to move my legs. I stretched and toss and turn.
I take paracetamols but that only calms me down for a couple of hours. Ialso have inflammatory arthritis and I take etoricox (a strong NSAID) now every night so to be able to sleep.
I have seen a neurologist today and she has prescribed pramipexole. I have mixed feeling and, to be honest, I'm pretty scared that it could lead to augmentation.
I'm pretty scared.
