I have been suffering from rls since my early 20's, I'm 58 now. I have also suffered with depression since my 30's after an emotional breakdown. My depression worsened last year and I was unable to work or function normally. My gp prescribed citalopram to supplement my Prozac . My rls has reached new heights. I now have it in my hands also, I cannot sit still during my worst periods of it and sleep is just impossible. I have begun to dread bedtime, so much so that I have stopped the new medication. I just wish it would stop, I feel as though the rls has taken over my life.
