Having been diagnosed with this title 2 years ago and not R.L.S i am still no farther forward in obtaining relief on a daily basis. Having tried numerous medications prescribed by my Doctor the discomfort i am experiencing affects my quality of life. I am a 67 male fairly fit exercise 3 times a week with no other medical conditions apart from High Blood Pressure which is controlled by 1x Losarten tablet per day.
My symptoms can only be described as burning, itchy, sensitive ,feeling like stepping on bubble wrap continuously. Numbness on the soles of the feet and toes affecting the lower leg ankle calves and soles of feet. Left leg more severe than right.Wearing of socks shoes and any other clothing around that area makes the symptoms worse.
Slight relief can be obtained by wearing shorts and flipflops but in colder weather this is not practical.
I will be interested in the channel 5 programme tonight to learn more.
