Hi all. I have been struggling with RLS my entire life, (prior to my memories of it I have been informed that my parents had me at specialists who diagnosed 'Growing Pains').
Over this past few years and particularly after using Miripexin I developed RLS in my arms and torso and the bloody condition has gotten much worse.
Anyway I have a responsible job in healthcare and due to the associated insomnia and inability to get rest I have fallen asleep at work. I have asked for and been referred to the occupational health dept. hoping they might get something done for me.
My main worry is that I don't believe that I'll be able to work for much longer. I am not working at my best, (although doing a reasonably good job), and by the time I am home in the evening I am beaten and home life is suffering, (the constant exhaustion is ruining my entire life). I hope that if I can drop a day in the middle of the week I will be able to sleep more and function better, (although I don't want to loose a fifth of my wage).
So my question to you good people is are there many of you that have had to quit work due to RLS and the associated problems it brings?
Many thanks for reading.
