I thought i had posted this earlier on but it must have deleted it from my phone. I apologise if i keep posting in here but I'm at a loss as to what to do to get relief. If you didn't see my previous post, I'm a 25 year old male with a history of depression and anxiety and extreme tiredness the last couple of years. Nothing has ever helped the tiredness so i webcammed my sleep one night and found out i move my limbs a lot. Mainly my feet but also mainly my hips, along with head jerks and hand movements.
RLS has never really bothered me up until the last few weeks. I didn't even know i had it until then although I've always felt like i had to move my legs at some points. The hair on my legs has always been on the inside, but has rubbed away on the outside. I thought that was just how it grew. In the last few weeks, I'm now getting extreme daytime symptoms in my thighs which is bordering on pain, about 2 hours of sleep every night which is really taking its toll on me, and waking up shortly after sleeping all of a sudden. This is after using a sleeping med like Temazepam or Zopiclone as well. I'm so tired but i can't sleep and i don't know what to do. I started on rotigotine patches yesterday at 1mg,how long do these take to work?
I'm so desperate. I've been thinking of going to A&E. I know there's probably not much they can do for me but it won't go away and I look ill with lack of sleep. The symptoms have just suddenly come on 24/7 and my blood tests are fine. I've been having dark thoughts as I'm at a loss as to what to do. The GP's don't really seem that concerned even though I'm begging them for help. I just need one night of sleep which I haven't had in weeks
