I've suffered with RLS for years and it has caused me so many problems in life and especially at work. I am a train driver and have to sit for hours so you can imagine how bad it can get, RLS has caused me to have an incident at work where I was distracted and I went through a red signal, nobody was hurt and no damage done but it was a wake up call for me. I went to see my GP and she told me to stop work immediately as I am a risk to the public. I'm now taking Ropinirole and it has helped a lot but because of the possible side effects I think I'm going to have to retire on ill health grounds. I have been off work for nearly 3 months now.
Have any others here had to stop work due to RLS?
