I've had RLS for close to 10 years. Requip worked for 2 years pramapaxole worked break for 4 years then started havinga few break through episode's which wasn't to bad these last 2 years have been a nightmare I've had aloft of medical problems to deal along with RLS everyday and not just at night. My Dr tried me on seniment I think its called with no relief at all after4 months I gave up on it.when asked what else can try she said there's nothing that can be done, well I blew up and demanded to see a neurologist since then found out anemic B12 and vit D deficiency he thought one those normal RLS would improve wrong. Now on Gabapentin 900 and 1 hydrocodone an bed time tomorrow the gabapentin increases to 1200 so far had very little improvement only time I sleep is when totally exhausted I don't dare drive afraid of falling asleep making stupid mistakes at work and on 3 occasions fallen asleep standing up luckily I haven't gotten seriously hurt. I just don't know what to do anymore so tired (pacing as I type this) and frustrated that the doctors don't seem to understand how negatively this is affecting my life anyone have any suggestions
