@wilabozo: Were you on a dopamine-type medication like pramipexole? No dopamine-type medications; augmentation will torture you endlessly. Two weeks is not long enough for some people to recover from it.
Your best chance at medication-free existence is iron infusions (intravenous iron). Oral iron can help, too. You have to watch what doctors and labs say - your "iron" in your blood may be good even at the same time as iron stores in other tissues of your body are low - - this is detected indirectly by measuring the amount of ferritin in the blood (ferritin is an iron-storage protein, it's not iron, it contains iron). There is no right amount of ferritin to have; some people without WED/RLS are ok with 30 ng/ml but most of us with WED/RLS need at least 100, and some of us need 300. By "need" I mean that's the level ferritin gets to in the blood before enough iron has gotten into the brain to subdue symptoms. Holland has already gone over much of this
What were you on, for how long, what dose? Do you know about augmentation? Does your doctor know how to treat augmentation? Have you had blood levels of ferritin tested?
I have heard of people who stopped a DA and found they were symptom-free once the withdrawal was over.
Ditto for people who got iron infusions (maybe even 25% of them end up symptom free for months at a time, then get more infusions).
Dramatic improvements have been made by dietary changes of various kinds, two theories hold here among us on the board, both of which are probably true: one is that if you're deficient in some critical nutrient, replenishing it will relieve your symptoms; and the other is that the body needs lots of nutrients to do everything it does at the level of cellular metabolism, so we should eat in such a manner as to provide it with all those nutrients - including avoiding anything that we're sensitive or allergic to, since that will slow absorption, avoiding easily digested starches and added sugars, which can cause the population of harmful microbes in our guts to overwhelm the population of good microbes (with far-reaching effects including neurological ones), and making sure we get as much nutrition as possible from whole foods. I reduced my dose of hydromorph contin from 18-21 mg daily to my current 9-10 mg daily over a 2 yr period maybe less after I changed my diet.
So there are things you can do to improve your situation. I imagine it's very hard to think straight right now with the amount of sleep you're getting, is there a doctor at your back?? Going back to pramipexole is not the answer, but living on 3hr sleep (and I bet it's fractured and low quality ) is not the answer either!
Kratom is a herb with opioid-like properties that is effective in treating WED/RLS. It is illegal in some states, legal in others. I would check into it if your doctor can't help with a short-term prescription of a potent opioid (Which is awkward to ask for, in fact DON'T ask for it, but download the RLS Foundation's Medical Bulletin (see instructions in link above my name, below) and highlight the relevant parts and let him/her suggest it).
Cannabis will probably not be helpful in your current situation, some strains seem to help a few people but most of us who take it use it only for sleep, it does nothing for the symptoms for most of us. There is an added disadvantage that it reduces sensitivity to opioids, which I just learned today from my physician, so don't be taking it and kratom both. Of the two, kratom is hands-down your better choice.
