I'm 29 and have had rls for ever, but after I had to have my little toe amputated after 5 failed surgeries and 3 manipulations my rls had became quite intense, as to be waking me up at night. I had to have a sleep study done where they actually had to give me a pretty heavy sleeping medication to get me to sleep because of my legs, but they had actually found out thatmy case is one of the most extreme cases that they have ever seen as it doesn't only involve my legs but rather my legs, arms, feet and hands if not on medications. But recently my dosage of mirapex hasnt been working, as im having difficulty again. Its so frustrating, and i Have tried all of the home remedies, nutrient suppliments and nothing is working! To make matters worse, we Have moved to another state eger i have yet to find a new doctor and i have ran out of my medication. I have been trying everything short of going to the er because mine will cause me to not be able to sleep because of how intense this is! I have not been able to sleep in 2 days because of this and im so worn out. I just know that if i was to go to the emergency room, they would look at me weird and think i was inane even though i have all of my med records to prove this condition. i know a lot of people think this condition is rediculous but it is very real and can run your Life if untreated! Im also here to say that with extreme cases like mine, exercising actually does nothing for improvement, as i walk 4 miles a day and has no effect what so ever on my condition! Otc drugs like the ones you can find at walmart, dont work for me either, i do not know if its because they are to weak but its been my experience that they just flat out do not work! Mirapex has been my saving grace with this condition especially after it had worsened after not only the trauma i endured but with my last pregnancy, it was horrible! Talk About aggrevation! That was the most miserable i had ever been in my Life! I do not wish this condition on anyone! And sympathise with anyone who does deal with this aggonizing condition day after day. I hope this med can help others as i know its a fairly new medication on the market!
