Does anyone have severe sweating when they have an RLS attack? Similar to hot flushes but continious. I am 69 and I really don't think this is hormonal as in menopause. I've mentioned it to my GP and also pointed it out when I first saw a neurologist ( 2 years ago) and was put on the only medication I have so far used (Ropinirol). Neither paid much attention and dismissed it as not significant. But it's bloody annoying and uncomfortable.
I've slowly had to 'up' my dose of Ropinirole and am just about to do so again. I take Tramadol now and again. Especially if the RLS begins in the early evening rather when I (try) to go to sleep. As it's starting to do.
