Is it just me? About 2 months ago I visited GP with pain in my feet and ankles. It feels like hot lead boots. This is in addition to restless legs but sometimes the pain takes over from the jumping and it all ache. I showed him the nodules on my toe joints and asked about arthritis. He said yes it was RA but offered no help. I went back again and asked about treatment. He arranged blood tests which came back negative for RA and receptionist said no further action required. Walking is uncomfortable and the pain from early evening makes me very irritable. 3 week wait for another appointment, this GP says neuropathy and has given me amytriptiline. I told her about reading on the website that it was not advised. Was told she would like me to try it anyway as it was tiny amount 10mg. Legs went mad in the early hours last night!!! I have fought so hard to get the rls down to bearable that I'm angry at her knowall attitude. I wasnt expecting the rls to kick off after only I small tab so it wasnt my imagination. I dont know if there is a treatment for rls and peripheral neuropathy together. Will keep reading. 🤔
