Diagnosed about ten years ago but seems longer than that. Doctor put me on ROPINOROLE stating it was still experimental as not much was known about RLS. Told me to check online if I didn't believe him. At the time the only feeds were to America, so glad to see it is now recognised seriously over here.
Symptom 1 ...twitchy jumpy legs...playing football or auditioning for Riverdance ...ANNOYING
Symptom 2 ...itchy bones ...feel like the bones are itching right in the centre where you can't scratch ...IRRITATING
Symptom 3 ...hot feet ...feel like you could fry an egg on them they are that hot ...DEPRESSING
Symptom 4 ...leg and feet cramp ...starts when I try to stretch legs to feel more comfortable ...PAINFUL
Spent many nights walking on cold floors, doing a funny stomping type walk ( much to the amazement of my dog...thinks I'm mad). As I said I am on ROPINOROLE, swapped and changed and finally found 3mg seems to work most nights.
Like a post I read last week, at times you do feel like cutting your legs off, that's how depressing it is, people without this should look into it, then we may get some sympathy instead of being screamed at for jumping about in a bed.
SYMPATHIES TO EVERYONE AND LOOKING FORWARD TO A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP SOME TIME IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE.
