I have had RLS for decades at this point. I have tried it all and although Fentanyl isnt a cure, it has for the most part, allowed me to regain control over my life. It is a constant struggle but I can only pray that Fentanyl works for me for another four years at which point I should be able to retire. I am desperately trying to hold on to my career and fentanyl has been a life saver insofar as my symptoms now occur at any time day or night. Fentanyl and Oxycodone for breakthrough pain allow me to function although even with this, I still suffer pain and the tribulations of RLS. It is definitely something I would not wish on my worst enemy it is, the ugliest condition I have ever had to deal with. I wish that those who dont understand or suffer from this could really understand the horrors that go along with severe restless leg syndrome. It is truly a horrible condition and I sympathize with all who suffer from it.
