I'm 30 and have suffered with RLS since I was 10. I was only diagnosed 2 years ago after exhausting all other avenues of having epidurals etc as they thought it was sciatica. The pain at night is unbareable I saw a neurologist who upped my pregabalin however after the being up to the maximum dose it stopped working at all. I have been taking Ropinirole for a few months and am now up to the 2mg. It was beneficial at first even 0.25mg initially I'm off all pain killers and pregabalin however the pain is back. It's the unbareable twitching I spent all night walking around my flat last night then worked all day. I give myself cramp to try and stop the twitching and ease the pain which sometimes eventually works but then my legs ache all day.
Is there anything else after Ropinirole?? The neurologist only said pregabalin or Ropinirole. Also what's the best pain relief I didn't find codeine beneficial prior to the Ropinirole.
