I agree with this

Bring a family member who can articulate how this disease has lowered your quality of life.
How your RLS impacts not just you , but those around you.
I brought my wife to my last appointment and that was very helpful
There was no brushing off the both of us .

This is serious and the more people on board with you the better
There is safety in numbers !

WIsh I could go with you. I know you have asked multiple times and that must be so frustrating not be be heard. Whatever you do, try your hardest to be as assertive as you can, even if that isn't comfortable. I noticed that you said that you asked - one thing I have found is that I have better outcomes when I switch to statements instead of asking. Asking gets you yes or no. and a no from a doc usually means I shut up. Statements require something different. "For my health and based on published research, I want to do X," requires the doctor to address that and talk to you, telling you why and what.
