As I go on now for over 48 hours without sleep I can only wonder how long someone can do this without going crazy? I'm getting so depressed and beginning to think dying is better than living with RLS. I've had RLS for more than 20 years now and it's only getting worse. It's not only in my legs but equally as bad in my arms. I take Requip for it and it works ok but like the Klonopin I used to take most doctors I've been to don't want to prescribe either one. I just moved and ran out of the Requip I had and my doctor from my old town will not call in for me. Why is it so hard to get medicine for RLS?????? I go through life with a constant worry of not having any medicine. Does anyone else have a problem finding a doctor who will give you something for RLS? I'm at my wits end!

Re: Rls

Do you have a general practitioner? I am surprised youíre having such a hard time. If you have a Neurologist they typically know a lot more and would not hesitate to give meds for RLS.

Re: Rls

Good call. Think I will call my neurologist and see what she says. Would really prefer something natural though. Wonder if acupuncture is worthwhile?
