I have had RLS for as long as I can remember, and only just recently decided to do something about it. I first visited my general doc, who tried prescribing me Ropinirole, then Pramipexole, all to no avail (I had intolerable side effects with each). She said there was nothing more she was able to do, so she referred me to a neurologist. My appointment with the neurologist is tomorrow and I am just curious if anyone can tell me what I can expect from my appointment tomorrow - will they send me home with medication to provide me immediate relief, or will this be another long trial-and-error process during which I get no relief? My RLS severely affecting my quality of life, as I am not getting much sleep, which I cannot afford as a full-time student. If anyone has any advice for me, I would greatly appreciate it!
