I have severe rls and have been on several different Parkinson's medications that never helped or made me sick to my stomach. I was not sleeping and was taking hot baths or shower up to 4 times a night with my rls, I moved and twitched so much I ended up hurting my knee.. My sleep doctor put me on 1mg neupro patch and then increased to 2 mg patch. I was in heaven, my rls was almost completely gone. Then I started notice irritation where the patches had been. I stayed on the patches for 2 months knowing how bad they were hurting my skin. The longer I used them the worse the skin got and then started to blister and itch, turn bluish in color, wouldn't quit bleeding if scratched. Did not want to tell doctor because I knew he would take me off them. He went ahead and put me back i on the 1 mg and about two days later I developed a severe rash on my legs and arms. After a week I ended up in er for a shot and medications. Doctor gave me samples of mirapex er time release they are helping my rls, not as we'll as patch but ok. Only problem is my insurance won't cover the time release pill. In the mean time my sores are getting worse, I still have leaky sores from November, funny thing is that I have small sores now where I never had put a patch. My very first sore from November still bleeds and or leaks fluid and has a hard like growth beside it. I am going to my dr's pa in about a week. I feel like a freak, I pray I don't ever have a wreck and they have to cutaway my clothes away I look terrible. I also have noticed dark mole like spots developing at a rapid pace. I just can't go back the way I was. Help, does this sound familiar to anyone?
