Welcome to ErnieB

Monday, February 5

Welcome to

ErnieB, who has had RLS since birth. It causes intense foot pain in addition the restless leg. He is now retired but it was only ten years ago that he learned that there was medication for this problem but this is not a disease well known by our doctors in this small city.

Your doctor situation is not something that is limited to small cities, it is a problem in large ones as well. Please post a note telling us what you are currently doing to manage your RLS so that we can offer some suggestions on how to proceed and improve your situation.

Welcome to

judiart, who has suffered for 60 years with separate bedrooms, separate sleep hours, thousands of hours of discomfort and frustration. Also medicines that don't work or that have unacceptable side effects.

Please post a note telling us what you are currently doing to manage your symptoms. Our experience has been that there is always something else to try.

Welcome to Deb B.

Welcome to

Deb B, who has had RLS her whole life but was diagnosed 15 years ago. She is 59 years old. She has to sleep alone, is always tired, pills are a drain on the pocketbook and she just hates the creepy feeling.

Please post a note telling us what you are (of have been) taking for your RLS. We have found that there is usually something else to try that either doesn't cost as much or doesn't cause unpleasant side effects.

We can very definitely provide support and maybe even some suggestions to improve your situation. If you will post a note telling us what you are currently doing to manage your RLS, we can probably provide some suggestions.

Please post a note telling whether you have a diagnosis of RLS. Your symptoms are close, but there are other things that can cause what you are describing. We would like to help you out, but need to know more.

Welcome today to

JRock1947 who finds RLS has been torture. Symptoms have gotten worse in the past year. Every aspect of life is affected: daily activities, dealing with others, depression, medication reactions and more.

We are all so aware of this, your symptoms are exactly what we understand. How it has affected you is well understood by us.
Please make a post telling us about your symptoms and your medication regime. Everyone here wants to help.

Welcome to Zotis12, who has had WED/RLS for over 20 years and is currently augmenting and suffering from impulse control disorder.

Zotsi12, tell us your story, ask questions, provide advice; please make yourself at home! From what you have said, it seems almost as if you have resigned yourself to living with augmentation and ICD. (Did I read you wrong?) There are alternatives to the dopamine agonists that you probably should investigate. You can begin here! Welcome.
