I've had rls since I was probably about 12, with it getting far worse in my late twenties. I'm now 32 and it's an evil condition plain and simple.
Some of the things it's caused me to do have been ridiculous, like the time I went away on a course and forgot my tablets. I tried to get blind drunk to pass out, didn't work, so self presented at A&E to try and get some meds. They weren't interested.
I'm on 60mg of dihydracodiene and 350micrograms of pramniprexole. This combination works most nights, but it's not an ideal combination of drugs to be taking for over two years now.
I've seen doctors and neurologists etc, had bloods and iron tested, with no effect. Also had scans and tests on my legs with nothing coming back.
I'm reasonably fit, don't smoke, rarely drink, go to the gym regularly and eat healthy.
Without the drugs I cannot sleep, not even a minute. I have spent many a night pacing the house, tearing my hair out.
I'm interested to know who else is out there in the same position as me and their experiences.
