Iam 85 & I have suffered with RLS for69 yrs. very very mildly at 18 when I got pregnant,not at the end tho'..first few days. I never really noticed it then thought it was due to pregnancy but the last few years (10-15) its got worse,I don't know what a nights sleep is 2hrs. if im lucky. I had adartrel..then it was ropierole 613micrograms controlled it pretty well 2 at midday 2 at 5-ish 2 in the night. it got so bad Dr. upped the dose to 1mg. I don't sleep at all now soon as Itake one my legs start & the pain is unbearable. It always starts artound midday 2 or 3 hrs.then tea time until 2-3-4o/c in the morning I just spend the night walking about its driving me mad. there must be something I can take that would help, surely..( a gun comes to mind sometimes)
