After waiting 7 months for an appointment yesterday I finally seen a neurologist about my legs driving me insane! He was a great doctor and has said that it is likely RLS and is convinced that my problem is caused by dopamine imbalance as opposed to something more physical. However, he is very reluctant to prescribe me anything at all probably for a long time because I'm only 17 and sent for MORE bloods (I've had about 20 blood tests in the past 18 months, due to this problem and others). Happy to have finally made some progress but really struggling to see how I can cope in the near future because this is ruining my life
