I am fairly new to this post and I find it heartbreaking to read these letters. I understand what it is like to suffer from this horrible disorder. I had 8-9 years of utter misery. One of the many, many drugs I had which actually helped was Neupro, which was the 3rd dopamine I had tried. I was on a 6mg patch daily but after a month I had not a single place to put the patch. Now 8 months afterwards I still have marks from the patch. I was a redhead before the grey and that is probably why my skin didn't obey!
I read about the Relaxis pad and was impressed only because it was designed by a doctor who had RLS. I was surprised when it worked. I decided it was merely a remission when the symptoms disappeared but now after 5 months of no pain at all I am certain it was this magic pad.
I paid a hefty sum, $700, for it but it can be rented. I urge anyone with this awful diagnosis to give it a try. The Relaxis company is small. You don't see many ads and the Info online is quite dated. However the folks at Relaxis are extremely helpful and they keep in touch with you until you are comfortable using the pad. It took a couple of weeks for all of my symptoms to disappear. Phone Relaxis and talk to Carl. Good luck!!
