My personal exp with Requip was that it made my RLS worse from day one. I think it's unusual that it happened, and my Dr thought I was nuts. But my RLS was awful while on it. Once I quit a few weeks later it was back to its regular awful.

I hope you get some relief soon!

I've heard its caused by sleep deprivation. severe sleep deprivation which is why I think a lot of us RLSers get it. The less you sleep the more often it happens. It's awful, you would think your body wouldn't do this to you when your at your weakest instead of targeting you at this time. I think it...

oops a little more. He's a php web developer with mad skills. Every job he applies for wants him to take a test. One section of one of the tests asked him to make a Tic Tac Toe game http://216.120.228.235/~rhenders/ttt/ it's completely from off the top of his head, using nothing from the internet. I...

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I'm losing my insurance at the end of this month, and am in a new state. County health department is a really good suggestion. If they can't help you chances are they have a social worker that you could probably work with to find something. Don't give up hope,...

I was just thinking I needed to get a note from Dr. Earley that explains some of the common problems one with RLS might find in the job force so I can get help. I'm not confident in this though his office is so hard to get through to, just a message machine, and they've never returned my calls. I ha...

I'm really sorry to have to type this. My husband lost his job, last Thursday. I'm afraid I won't be able to see my Dr at John's Hopkins, or even my general practice Dr. I'm going to be uninsured. I don't have a clue how I'm going to get my medications =(*. I live in a new state and everything is di...

I had to quit my job back in Feb 08, because of my lack of cognitive ability, and my legs, and my lack of sleep. Now I need a jo...

Awesome! I'm so happy for you. I think once you get into a sleep routine and stick with it, and not think about your legs it can be a lot of help. I hope it never comes back!

So I've got some time to plan where to go apply for loans etc. I decided also today that I'd like to be a pharmacist. (any pha...
