Welcome Deblet98

27th November 2018

Welcome today to:

Deblet98 - who has been on various dopamine drugs for 10 years and was starting to experience argumentation again. Dr took her off drugs and said there was nothing else to provide and Deblet would have to wait 3 months to see a specialist. then a further six months to see another specialist. Now in agony for over five years, the rls is severe now, going off the dopamine in the way she did has left Deblet with nerve damage. She can hardly leave the house and has severe foot pain ( now living on oxycodone, mexiletine, clonazepam and repinex. Just wants some kind of life back

Please make a post telling us about your treatment to date and how you are now coping. There is nearly always something else to try, sometimes a cocktail of various suitable drugs. We want to help but need to do so on a thread.

Welcome to sculler

Welcome to

sculler, who has been suffering with RLS for 12+ yrs. After years of various limited success drug attempts with his sleep disorder physician and RLS specialist, methadone granted him the best relief, sleeping well and remaining athletically active. Recently due to a trip out of state and the differing dispensing laws for controlled substances, he was without the methadone for 3 days. The RLS symptoms returned with a vengeance. He had never had such pain. This event brought him to the Foundation site and this message board.

Sorry that you had to go through this experience, but running out of meds for a short time is one that many of us have had. Please post a note telling us more about your treatments and asking any questions that you have.

Welcome to

georgeconnell, whose RLS symptoms have increased in frequency and intensity over last few months. His Dr. claims the problem is due to apnea. He disagrees.

If you are taking a dopamine agonist, it is possible that you are experiencing augmentation. So, please post a note telling us about your current RLS treatment so that we can offer some suggestions.
