I am 60 years old and have had rls for as long as I can remember. It is getting worse I do not want to go back to not watching a whole film or going to the theartre because I wriggle about too much and get embarraced. Also standing by the door on areoplanes for 5 hours was definately an all time low.
I am on the maximum dose of Ropinerole and have been taking it for a number of years suffering the gambling and impulsivity too.
I am going to see my doctor this week for a blood test for ferratin and then maybe move onto patch. The only time I slept better was when I was taking pre gablin for a trapped nerve in my shoulder. I came off it and wow they seemed horrendous thats 2 years ago. I have been told that gabapentin is more widely used for rls and will go on it if I cannot get any relief any other way.
Any views on anything I have mentioned would be great.
