I am new to the forum but have had rls for over 30 years. It has got a lot worse since I had a severe back problem and had to be on pregabalin and then gabapentin (which was on no use anyway). I have now had an operation to cure the back but went on coding and tramadol for a few weeks which really upset the rls. Now off all pain mess but have had to go onto ropinerol for rls. Question, do the forum readers have any suggestions regarding dosage or when best to take them as I do not seem to be able to get on top of it?
