I am new here but it look very promising and interesting. I am just wondering if you can remember when you started to have this RLS? Because since I was finally diagnosed in May 2015 I have been reading lot of research, books and the whole world wide website. There were so many information that I finally understood why I have RLS.
I first remember when the RLS started was when I was 7 or 8 years old and had trouble getting to sleep because my legs was playing up. So I then decided to try to move my feet back and forth while counting "the sheep" and then slowly I was able to fell asleep. And since then I am doing it until in May 2015 I was finally diagnosed! It was such a relief to finally getting some recognition about my problems.
My previous GP always thoughts I am making all up. But since I got the new GP now because he retired, she then finally recognised and accepted it.
I am taking Gabapentin 300mg daily morning & evening. So far it's very helpful.
What about you? When did RLS started? And how? And now what are you doing to cope with the RLS? Do you take medications?
