I'm new here! I have been under 2 different neurologists over last 6 years, under NHS, then in desperation saw another one privately( VERY EXPENSIVE) for another opinion. Result, after numerous tests with each, 2 said I had Restless Leg Syndrome, another said Peripheral neuropathy !! Have had all usual very strong medications , such as Gabapentin etc, all NO use, and side dreadful side effects . Also tried acupuncture on NHS- no use. Go to bed about 11.30 pm most nights and about 4 am tha pain in both lower legs sets in with a vengeance!! I do not suffer from jerking. Turn from one side to other to try and elevate pain, which doesn't work, and yet from the minute I actually get up, the pain subsides almost instantly. Lack of sleep, and the nightly pain, making me feel quite desperate!! Only glad to hear so many other poor women ( I am in the older age group) seem to have similar problems!
