The idea of being trapped in a plane with RLS is beginning to haunt me. Any tips/meds anyone could recommend please. 2 hour flight in 3 weeks, 3 hour one in December and heaven help me, South Africa in June!! The doctor gave me diazepam 2mg. I tested it out and spent half the night staggering around like a zombie with RLS then all morning in a daze.
I have 1mg neupro patches, 2mg ropinirole and 0.088mg pramipexole. Also a lisiniprol 10mg for high BP.
Although I know the neupro works, not sure about rest! When I say work it means that usually legs don't start until early evening! I never sit in an armchair in the evening and find upright dining type chairs or a stool better although not for long. Why is that? Hence I hardly sit down in the evening. Even displacement activities don't work anymore. I went to the pictures Sunday at 12.45 pm and struggled after 50 minutes!
Sometimes I get cramp too from trying to flex muscles.
So sick of it.
Sorry didn't mean to go on
