Had that some time ago. Perhaps two years. I am sorry to trouble you but after being up all night I was desperate to talk to someone. Can't even get to see my GP today. I don't think this is the answer for me. I will revert to the RLS forum. I sincerely ***** ***** help but I do need a Neurologist to help me. I just cant find one yet but will keep looking. Goodbye and many thanks.
