My GP prescribes 'Sifrol' for me. I have pain in my right leg and arm and hand and behind my eye. I know this is for restless leg syndrome but honesty I have nerve pain so how will this help me? I have taken it for one week now with no results. My problem is finding a MS Neurologist.
This is an excellent question. We do not usually use a dopamine agonist like pramipexole (Sifrol is a brand) to treat neuropathic pain. You may want to suggest a trial of gabapentin or pregabalin to your general doctor. Good luck.
