Welcome to

Rusty, who has helped his wife deal & cope with RLS & PLMD for over 45 years. She has had many other medical challenges, which compounded the RLS symptoms.

Congratulations for helping your wife through her issues for all these years. Please feel free to comment on any of our discussions, start a new one to let us know about her RLS and treatment or to ask any questions that you have.

Welcome to

eva11, who has suffered with RLS for at least 30 years She puts on socks to help with it and found that wearing 3 pairs of socks usually helps.
When lying in bed for about 15 minutes, her feet and calves became chilled, but the chill felt like it was inside her legs like a nerve type of pain. Also, the RLS only effected one leg/foot at a time. She saw a medication called "Restful Legs" and for the past 5 days it has helped.

Please take a look around and then feel free to join any of our discussions or post a note asking any questions that you have.

Welcome, Debijod

Postby ViewsAskew » Mon Aug 28, 2017 9:24 pm

Today, the 28th, we welcome Debijod, who doesn't know anyone else with RLS and is looking for others who understand how it feels to suffer with RLS. Debijod finds that RLS often disrupts sleep even with medication.

Now you can say you know others - many of us participate regularly and we completely understand how it feels.

Per the medication, consider posting about your current medications; our members are knowledgeable and have been in your situation. We might be able to provide some options for you to explore.

Welcome to

krisy, who has been on ropinerole for years, but has episodes when she can't get to sleep for hours.

When you take a look around, pay special attention to the forum on Augmentation to see if any of that sounds familiar. And please post a note telling us a bit more about what you do to manage your RLS (such as your dose of ropinerole) and asking any questions that you have.

Welcome to

Erikahallerman, whose RLS has greatly impacted her quality of life. It is the source of sleep deprivation, chronic pain and weight gain. It's been a terribly challenging time but she believes she has turned a corner.

Please take a look around and then post a note telling us what you are doing to manage your RLS and what has happened that has allowed you to turn a corner. We are always interested in anything that has helped one of us since it could also benefit others.
