Hello, new to the site. I'm from a small town in USA. I have had RLS as long as I can remember. As a child I would be unable to sleep due to my legs feeling funny, my mom would try to message them, which only made it worse. The Doctors would say that I had growing pains. I am 52 and thought I was crazy. I hated it, some days it would be bad, then I would go months with out symptoms. Well pregnancy made It worse, and still it was not every day. But he my late 30's it was happening weekly. I was finally diagnosed in 2003. I was given Miripex and it did help. Well to make this shorter, the last few years have been brutal. I have RLS 2-4 times a day, and b it's going to my arms. I take 1 MG 2-4 times a day, with little relief. I would honest get my feet amputated but I would probably still be able to feel the RLS. My life is being ruined I have no health insurance, so no support from a Dr. Anyone with RLS this severe of symptoms?
