Sadly, I read the posts from the RLS folks . It summarizes that we're all taking various doses of the same stuff whether we're in the UK or in the USA and it boils down to a bunch of us miserable people looking for help and nothing is coming.
We desperately ask each other for ideas for new meds or new combinations of the old ones and rarely does someone say they've found the solution for themselves. I read today from oldblue that his early ventures on the new med seems to be working then a short time later, its back to the old misery. Tonight is Christmas eve and I've got company company and I didn't sleep 2 hours last night and I have no idea how I'm going to get through this and then theres tonight and more of the same no sleep and then Christmas day. Today is the first time I've actually felt that I just can't do this anymore. And that is sad and very scary.
