Hi everyone, I'm new here. I have had RLS since my first child in 1991. I have been on medication most of my life for BPD/Anxiety Disorder and taking my night time sedative helped me to sleep better despite the RLS, if my meds kicked in quickly I would have a good sleep but if for some reason it didn't I would still have the aching but the meds eventually would make me go to sleep.. I have recently come off my sedative and the RLS is back with a vengeance. I have not slept for the last 5 nights and my legs ache the whole night through now and sometimes my arms, which is a lot worse than when I was younger. Both my legs are still aching a little today which is something new to what I used to have. People don't realise how it can affect you. How miserable it makes your nights and how you can dread going to bed. I am trying my best to persevere in the hope it settles down but I am already thinking that perhaps I should go back on my sedative because I can't bear to think that every night will be like this but I really don't want to have to go back on my meds Is there any other therapy that anyone has tried that could help or is this it?!
