Looking back over the years,I realise I had RLS intermittently. Then 4 yrs ago after a fall from a stepladder resulting in severe back pain I had a nerve block procedure, to cut a really traumatic period short, I'm now suffering daily with rls (just in my legs and feet) and am currently taking pramipexole, which helps enough to keep me sane!! (Just about!).... I have 2 patches on my outer thighs that feel bruised, sometimes numb, sometimes fizzy (not quite pins and needles). I don't sleep well, and driving really makes them worse. So, that's me...... I'm hoping to hear some helpful tips on how to cope.
