Oh what a mistake I made! I was not paying attention to my requip supply and opps! I ran out. No requip for two nights. Knowing what it is to fall asleep without my legs jumping around, makes going to bed with out requip frightful, painful, and stressful. Strange note here...I find myself waking up ...

See! That was my problem too: leg or legs kicking with pain and frustration, keeping me from falling asleep. UGH! I said that was my problem. So far the .50m of requip has subdued 30 years of dealing with this nocturnal nightmare. However, if I feel sleepy during the day, that RLS interferes with an...

FYI
I collect polar bears.
