I have had RLS since a child but the last four years its became unbearable.
Im now on ropinrol 4mg daily my RSL starts early afternoon and as a HGV driver its torture.
I take my 4mg at 7.30 pm every nite just after my food then in half hours time im sick go very cold and fall asleep suddenly about 5-7 times over the next hour, then I spend the evening fighting the RLS standing in the room rocking genly on my feet almost in tears just wanting it to stop so I can sit down and watch tv in peace, dont get me wrong some evenings i take my 4mg and in an hour I have no RLS annd sit with my wife and enjoy the evening.
Ive been back to the doctors today and told me I have to wait until August 6th to see the doctor who diagnosed me, because the DR I seen this am has no knowlege on RLS.
There must be some sort of releif out there for me apart from ropinrol which makes me sick and feeling so unwell all the time. This is like a living hell dreading every evening of RLS or as my wife calls it river dancing. If any one has any suggestions to what will help ease the symptoms then please im willing to try any thing.
