I'm A new member here
Just happened by chance to see there was a support group in my local area
So I went. It was run by a recent member on the Board of Directors the RLS Foundation.
They also had a doctor who works with RLS Pts so I was pretty excited that I may get some good advice
Turns out the doctor confirmed what I thought was going on with the Requip I've been taking
I'm having an augmentation effect
Worked well for a few weeks and then POW
Now worse than ever and starting earlier
In the day
He was so nice wanted me to go see him for treatment
Wanted to start me on the new drug Horizant
Said he has many Pts get great relief from it
Guess what my luck? He can't take my insurance because I have an HMO
I asked him if my PCP could prescribe it and he said probably not because insurance companies will only consider it if it is prescribed by a specialist
WHY is life so hard?
All I want is a little sleep
I truly don't know how much I can take
The group leader reminded use that funding for research is low priority because RLS is not a fatal disease.....REALLY?
If your anything like me I think sometimes of jumping off a bridge
Unfortunately for me that's not an option
I would hurt too many people who I love
Sometimes I wish I didn't have a conscience??
