Don't chop your legs off!!

I had rls for over 20yrs and tried everything. It was only when a new GP I saw who had researched rls prescribed clonazepam 500 microgram per evening gave me almost instant relief

I was lucky to get maybe 1 hours sleep at night and wished I could have my legs amputated

Now for the last 25+ Years I very rarely get a episode

Also my son and daughter suffer as well

Hope this helps someone

Gad you are getting relief with the benzo, others have found them beneficial, have you been on them long?


Yes about 20yrs


Bloody hell if I ever find a drug that works for 20 years I'd be delighted, that is great for you.


yeah that is how I feel I want to chop my feet & legs off. when in the hospital they give me morphine that really helps but I cant walk around like that all the time.
