I have been diagnosed with RLS for less than a year. Having read the posts from others, I would describe my symptoms as moderate. I take 1 sometimes 2 0.88 pramipexole in the evening as the twitching starts the moment I sit down and relax.
My partner and I want to try to conceive as I'm 37 this year we need to get a move on! My GP has said that I cannot take the pramipexole and that there is no safe RLS medication for use during pregnancy. So I have given up smoking, drinking alcohol, caffiene and weaned off the medication for bipolar disorder (all of which was required as part of the family planning process) and I've been walking to and from work in the hope that the RLS symptoms would reduce, but no :o((
So, does anyone have any suggestions for managing RLS without medication?
