Welcome to Hoskme

Welcome to

Hoskme, who developed RLS in December 2016 while on vacation. As a former GP, he pretty well knew what was going on, but was 25 years out of date. He started with a dopamine agonist but recently experienced augmentation, and was switched to gabapentin. He would appreciate discussing this condition with other sufferers.

You definitely found the right site for discussing RLS. We look forward to seeing your posts, and feel free to ask any questions that you have.

Welcome to

Happy, who has had RLS and body jerks for years and treated with Ropineral, but symptoms are getting worse and has required an extra Ropineral many nights.

Sounds like you could be augmenting on the ropinerole, take a look through the forum on augmentation and then please post a note with any questions that you have.

Welcome to MaureenAnn

Postby badnights » Tue May 30, 2017 4:02 pm

Welcome on May 30 to MaureenAnn who has suffered from WED/RLS since pregnancy and is now on three different medications

MaureenAnn, you'll find a lot of knowledge and experience here to draw on - and to add to. The most common problem for WED/RLS patients is augmentation, and doctors usually don't know about it. Check A Good Place to Start in this Forum, and find out what augmentation is, both here and on the RLS Foundation site. You can now reply to posts, or create a new Topic and tell us about yourself.

Welcome to

Felinefine, who spends most nights soaking in the bath tub, as that is the only place to get relief. Feline has had RLS for 55 years and, even with meds, it gets worse with age.

Please post a note telling us a bit about your RLS and what you are currently taking for it so that we can offer you some suggestions.

Welcome to PamMcT

Wednesday, May 31

Welcome to

PamMcT, for whom most evenings the tightening up of her calves is the onset of another night of being compelled to move her legs. She doesn't sleep and is am worn out. If she does sleep, she ends up all over the bed and kicks out. The other night, she kicked the night stand and broke the lamp.

Please post a note telling us what you are currently doing to manage your symptoms and whether you know if you have RLS or PLMS (or both). And feel free to ask any questions that you have.

Welcome to

Keeshakay, who is chronically ill and her RLS has returned to add to her many other problems. She can't sleep, has lost track of nights she has been up, and her mother had this disease. She is looking for some guidance & someone who understands what this does to a person.

We are here to help and hopefully provide you with the guidance and understanding you are looking for. Please post a note telling us about your situation and what you are currently doing to manage your RLS so that we can hopefully provide you with as many of the answers that you seek that are available.
