Restless Leg Syndrome Questions

I have restless leg syndrome for which I have done tests and ruled out any other causes. I am 32 years old only. Is there a possibility that if I start the doctor medication now (gaba) can that dosage be ineffective after some years? Any alternate way if that works? This only impacts me during my sleep time. My only concern is if I start the medicine at so early age, maybe at 50 plus age, it won't work anymore. Hence looking for alternatives.

If you have rls and you are taking gabapentin the effect is not going to disappear, there are many other drugs which are also available for treatment for rls. Therefore there is no need to worry you can safely consume your medication.

lybrate-user, 5htp supplements are not meant to be taken routinely. If you are suffering from rls, get your iron profile, tfts, rbs and kidney functions tested. And there are many better alternatives for rls. Please feel free to contact for further queries.

Restless leg syndrome (rls) is a condition in which your legs feel extremely uncomfortable while you're sitting or lying down. It makes you feel like getting up and moving around. When you do so, the unpleasant feeling of restless leg syndrome temporarily goes away. Restless legs syndrome can cause difficulty in falling or staying asleep which can be one of the complaints of the syndrome. A number of people who have rls also have periodic limb movements of sleep (plms). These are jerks that occur every 20 to 30 seconds on and off throughout the night. Treatment of restless legs syndrome involves identifying the cause of symptoms when possible. The treatment process is designed to reduce symptoms, including decreasing the number of nights with rls symptoms, the severity of rls symptoms and nighttime awakenings. Improving the quality of life is another goal in treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, it can be due to nerve compression due to bad sitting/sleeping posture. Also can be due to tension. Need to know more details about the symptoms and few investigations are necessary. Consult me on private chat. Also avoid carrying wallet in back-pocket.
