Hi Josephine,
I don't have RLS, but my foot neuropathy drives me crazy sometimes when it is cold too. Of course, only when I am trying to relax or sleep. Lotion and warmth are the only things that help me. I have not pursued medicines for it. I just can't face another pill at this time.

I found a fact sheet on RLS and thought it might offer some additional information that you can ask your doctor about. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/restless_legs/detail_restless_legs.htm#154023237

Sometimes we have to make them listen. They don't always take our "unseen" pain as seriously as they should. You have to be willing to fight for your treatment sometimes. It isn't right, but it is a fact of life.
