Patient discussion about Ekbom's syndrome

Q. i have restless legs at night . could someone help me with what meds i should take

A. I suffered badly from RLS for several years. I then went to see a Neurologist about it. He prescribed a medication for the RLS, and within days the problem was gone. The sense of relief was amazing. However, one has to take the medicine all the time - if I forget to take mine, then the symptoms come back. Nevertheless, it is great to be completely free of the problem !
