Just thought I'd write a quick post to say how grateful I am for this forum and the RLS UK charity! I came across the website completely accidently on a Google search last year when I was 16 and suffered severe RLS my whole life without knowing that it was a genuine condition. I was at such a low point in my life where I was frustrated and completely sleep deprived and thought that it was my own fault. Since then I have realised that what I was going through was not normal, was not my fault and it was not something I had to put up with and I was certainly not alone! Since then I had seen doctors and neurologists all over the country and yesterday I was finally diagnosed with RLS and prescribed benzodiazepines. I know that this is definitely not the end and it will probably be a long battle trying to find a drug, if any, that will work for me but its a start! If it wasn't for the great info posted online I would still be feeling completely hopeless, crazy and alone and I'm so grateful that I am no longer
