Hi I'm new here. I have suffered with severe RLS and PLMD for 13 years, diagnosed 2 years ago by a sleep study. I have tried natural remedies, iron and magnesium supplements, copper bracelets, and have been prescribed many medications unsuccessfully including ropinerole, clonazepam, nitrazepam, melatonin, rotigitine patches, pregabalin, zopiclone, zolpidem. Nothing knocks me out or helps me get restful sleep. All meds I have tried seem to just make me agitated and not help. Sometimes I can't fall asleep at all, other times as soon as i fall asleep i wake up only to fall asleep and wake up again instantly and i can be caught in that cycle for hours. The same thing happens if i nap during the day. I start to dream before ive properly fallen asleep and dream constantly if i do manage to sleep for a short period of time. I have not had a proper nights sleep in 13 years and to say it's taking its toll on me would be an understatement.
