I have been following the forum for a while now and have been struggling with RLS since I was a teenager, I am now 36 and this is the worst it's ever been.
I think my GP just thinks I over exaggerate never taking me seriously. He has started me on ropinerole and so far no side effects. My main concern is the pain and lack of sleep which is now showing in my work and ability to concentrate is zero. There must be something he can prescribe to help? I am going to go insane very quickly not sure how much more I can take 😔😔
I have done everything suggested walk every day, take iron tablets, tried relaxation techniques (didn't work), don't drink caffeine, avoided alcohol, don't smoke, keep sleeping patterns the same every night, don't exercise close to bedtime etc you name it I have tried it.
I feel like I have hit a brick wall, I have done everything I can and I can't cope or carry on like this.
