Pretzlenut that's awful for you, I can't imagine what it must be like to have it 24 hours... I have only had it a few times and that was horrid. I do feel for you :hugs:

hi
was now on quinine sulphat for a month
within a few days I could feel the difference
it also affected the tightsness or tenseness in all the body

run out of it two weeks ago
was still enough for me in my blood
by now I am back nearly back to RLS as it was before

couldn't go out of the house
send repeat prescription with other stuff and a clear not to either call me or please speak to my regular GP about the meds
of course I got no call, but my envelope back missing the prescription for quinine
it is now ready for mr to collect

next time I will ask reception for a call back of my GP
next day I can pick it up

so, for me quinine (it's the stuff in bitter lemon and tonic water just not enough to make a different in me) is working
all the best :cow-wave: Lu

My doctor is concerned that I lose the feeling in my lower legs. Its like they have disappeared which is a very strange feeling and difficult to describe properly. Does anyone else get this ?
