Since about Christmas I have been getting a sudden weakness in my legs, they feel very wobbly like they are made of jelly!
I have just had an instance where I could not make them work at all, and I must admit it scared me.
I had augmentation, according to my Doctor, and he has changed me from Premipexol to Rropinerole recently, I do not feel as well on this drug, but it is controlling the RLS symptoms, although the PLMD is getting worse which is why I went to him in the first place.
I do have disc problems in my spine, and upon reflection, my symptoms started with in a month of steroid injections and I have really deteriorated since this time.
I just do not know if the sudden leg weakness is RLS related or spinal.
I have made an appointment to see my doctor, but I am not too sure what he can do, I have never seen an Orthopeadic specialist, but I have been seen by a neurologist who said nothing can be done for my back, except an operation if I become paralysed, which he seemed to think was inevitable eventually. The operation has only a 20% chance of success. I did not have the RlS at that time, or the PLMD.
It is a horrible feeling, and can happen any time, I am getting afraid to go out alone, as my legs have given way now, although after resting they do feel better again.
Thanks for reading this, I hope you are all doing as well as possible,
A very worried Cazx
