My RLS is worse during the day now. I've had it since childhood, but recently the symptoms are worse during the day. I still don't sleep at night. I also have ME/CFS and I know that RLS can also be a symptom. Anyone any ideas that I can forward to my GP?
Daytime RLS: My RLS is worse during the... - Restless Legs Syn...
Hi - if I am overtired my legs go crazy. Walking or my exercise bicycle during the day helps. In the early evening I take 2 - .25 mg of pramipexole Dihydro for my legs along with 100 mg of Trazodone HCL 1 hr. before bedtime. That is a natural sleep aid and non habit forming. For the most part I am only bothered by restless legs a couple of times a month. I was considering trying another medication for my legs but after much research I am going to stick with the pramipexole.
I too starting getting symptoms during the day. I was told that it was probably augmentation since I had been taking ropinirole successfully for most of 20 years. I started wearing compression socks about two months ago and found the RLS symptoms disappearing during the day. I do not wear the socks at night but have found that my symptoms have been disappearing during the night as well (I am still using ropinirole). I can now go out to dinner with my wife and actually stay seated the entire time (symptom free). What a pleasure that has been. I got my socks on Amazon for about $15 a pair. You might mention the socks to your GP.
I have been with restless leg syndrome for nine years been on ropinerole went to see my doctor for my regular check up for the year and explained that the ropinerole tablets which I took for nine years the novelty wore off so he asked me if I would like to try something else as the ropinerole was not working at night and had restless legs during the day so I tried a transdermal patch rotigotine which you put on at night looks like a plaster l am on 1mg to start then if that didn't work I would be upped 2 mg or 3mg so far so good been on these patches which you change every night I sleep better I don't have restless legs during the day it is a great relief for me mention to your doctor about it look it up on internet and see what you think anything is worth a try than suffering
