My rls keeps me awake sometimes night after night others once a week and others nothing at all i wish it was one of those time. ive been awake two nights in a row now and during the day my legs feel like ive run a marathon :0( its not fair rls is messing with my life i have 3 children youngest 1 and oldest 9 and i just have not got the the energy to do things with them and because im tired i get ratty with everyone. I used to take ropinirole but going onto a higher dose as the lower dose stoped working made me physically sick no matter if i did take antisickness they didnt work now im on pramipexole they work but make me really sleepy the next day and in a world of my own i cant live like this i stoped taking the meds. there has to be something out there that can help! Im going back to the docs to see about the patch. Just feel like crying!
