Ive been reading all the blog posts on this site and although I would like to reply to all of them , I have no real good advice to give to anyone which is not already on here. I would just like to send all my support and best wishes to everyone.
I have been taking the 5 htp and it does seem to have helped my mood a tiny bit. But I've been keeping the rls quiet with codeine which makes me feel crap but I do need to get some sleep. Anyway I ran out of codeine and went to see my doc today and just fell apart on his shoulder. I just feel so miserable. I'm struggling with life in general at the moment and the rls just makes everything so much worse. Along with the lack of sleep....well . So we had a long chat and he gave me ssri,s . I have to take those for a month and then go back and we will start on the parkinson type dopamine drugs. He was very understanding and I think he has been researching stuff since I last saw him. So we will see what happens. Sometimes though I can't see the point of anything. But hopefully this too shall pass
Love to all x x x
