  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • My restless legs have been an issue since 2002. I have had stages of getting a maximum of 20 minute blocks of sleep then awake for an hour or two all night. Unable to work from 2007 until I started sifrol in 2009. It was working well until about 3 years ago. I am gradually declining again and am scared it will return as severe as before. I had a heart attack in 2006 which I believe was a result of rls. No medical condition was found to have caused my myocardial infarction..I now also feel the restless sensation in my stomach and chest..
