So I've finally managed to get hold of a Dr who doesn't think I just get leg cramps, it's definitely restless legs!! For years I've suffered and at the moment trying magnesium spray at night, which helps a bit but I'm still only falling asleep because I'm exhausted! So I've got blood tests Monday to check iron/magnesium levels and my thiroid (I think) and anything else, let's hope it's something as simple as that!! If they're all clear she said she can start talking about medication. Can't remember what it's called but she said it's a med that's used for parkinsons but the side effect can be bad, but she didn't mention what they were, to be honest I don't care because I'm getting desperate now, but just wondering what exactly are the side effects? If anyone knows, thanks.
