I've been battling this for two years now, and I've been on medication for a little over a year. I started taking only Mirapex at first, but found that raising the dosage made me extremely sick. My doctor now has me on a small dose of Mirapex as well as Klonopin at night. Being so young, I'm worried about the long term effects of the Klonopin.
Does anyone else my age have RLS? My doctor has not been very helpful. He's never seen anyone even close to my age that has it. My iron levels as well as my kidneys are fine, so I know those are the causes. Has anyone else had any help with any home remedies? Or has anyone else found a cause? I know this is more common in older women, and with being diagnosed so young I'm worried about how this will effect my quality of life as I grow older. I don't drink caffeine, and I try to drink as much water as I can.
I would love to hear of any other factors that may be causing this. I would also love to hear of any suggestions on specialists to see or other remedies to try.
