Just back from doctors. Would not give me an iron supplement as my level at 68was normal. I showed her the article that said that this is not normal for RLS sufferers but she was having none of it. So I have been to chemist and bought 200 mg ferrous sulphate. Neither would she prescribe any DAs as this needs to be a specialist prsricption. She said she would phone my neurologist and ask .but said that even if he thinks that is a possible route they will still not prescribe such a specialist drug through their practice. So the best I got was 7 sleeping pills to at least get me some sleep. I did actually get about 3 hours sleep in short bursts last night which is the best in a week. Maybe down to starting mindfulness exercises yesterday. I have a friend with cancer who struggles with chronic pain and she said that it changed her life.
If I don’t get some sleep over the weekend I have to phone in on Monday and get a sick line.
