Hi everyone I've been a member for a while but have stayed relatively non active which is all about to change because I really feel I need to talk to someone that understands. I have had RLS since I was a child and it has progressed nicely over the years to the point that it now affects my day to day life.
It is particularly severe today already at 15:30 as I have a virus that I picked up from work (I work in rehab units and being enclosed environments you only have to breathe to catch something) and for reasons which are obvious and I'm sure you don't want to hear the Tramadol I take have no chance of working!
I know that I'm in for a real treat tonight especially as I've been sleeping on and off during the day.....I'm really not looking forward to it.
Nobody really understands and I guess I can't blame them when I can't seem to find the right words to describe the symptoms. Has anyone found any way to describe it that makes it not sound like you have hypercondria? Restless leg syndrome isn't necessarily accurate in my case either as I suffer with my arms in equal measure.
I'm really at my whits end with it and think I may very well go crazy if I endure many more nights of pacing up and down the lounge in tears only to be laughed at when I explain to people why I'm so tired. Sorry for the moan but I just feel so alone.....oh that rhymes maybe during my endless waking hours I should become a poet.
Thanks for listening x
