Hello! I am new to the community, and I am so grateful to have found fellow night walkers! I have had severe RLS for at least 10 years, and I have currently been taking ropinerol for some marginal relief.
Well, I have just discovered as a new mom that apparently ropinerol counteracts prolactin, so I am having a helluva time trying to breastfeed. Had anyone else had this issue, and if so, what was the solution? I have tried stopping the ropinerol but it feels like I am being absolutely tortured. I already am getting very little sleep as a new mother, and now I can barely sit still to even TRY to nurse my newborn, or even hold him for any length of time without the horrible creepy-crawlies I’m not only my legs (BAD) but my arms too. I cannot rest. I see a neurologist (FINALLY) in a few weeks, but Until then I am just dying. Help!
