Thank you so much for the reply. I was beginning to think I was the only one with the tightening and spasming legs that someone had called RLS. You are right about those leg cramps, I would rather have those then whatever it is that I have. While they say it is RLS you are the only person who has re...

General symptons-Is it really RLS???????

It has been along time since I have been here. Actually, haven't been able to sit still long enough to read anything. I have been on several different meds over the past several years since they first told me that I had RLS. I am now on Mirapex and while it appeared to stop working for a while, I we...

Thank you all for the support. It was strange that phrase came into my positng because I was just writing about having a mortgage. Oh well, I am so glad this forum is here, I thought that perhaps I was crazy to think that my RLS could change so much by just getting rid of the stress. I know that I w...

Could stress worsen the symptons?

I had RLS almost 24/7. I could not take it anymore. I couldn't drive, watch a movie, sit at the computer, do my job, I could sleep because of the Requip but did not know how well I was sleeping. A sleep study was set up and I could not do it because...I quit my job!! Now, how does that relate to my ...

Charlene, My Arthritis has been getting progressively worse over the years. This acheing in the muscles has just started over the last 6 months. This having a hard time moving has just started within the last 6 months. I wonder if it is something else now. I am not working at another job just yet ot...

Hey all, I haven't been here for awhile but did have some questions. My RLS has made a turn around now that I am no longer working at the high stress job. I would say that the 24-7 RLS problems I was having appear to be triggered by stress. Now I am not a doctor but it is amazing the difference for ...

Ann, Thank you so much for the post. I have printed all that I could and will be reading it later this morning. I will also be seeing my Doctor this next week and I will give her all that I printed this morning. I will email her today about stopping the Cymbalta. Although, I think the RLS is at such...

I don't know what my triggers are I just know that at this point in time my RLS is almost constant in my legs and arms. I would say that at least 75% of each of my day is spent in agony. I am on Requip and Lyrica and neither are working for me anymore. After the first of the year my Doctor is going ...

Hos, thanks for the site. I have added it to my favorites and will print it once I get some ink for my printer. Since adding more Lyrica to my meds I noticed a bit of relief yesterday, the only time it got bad was just before I went to bed. Hopefully adding a bit more of the Lyrica will start to wor...

Sunshine, I also get vivid dreams at night on the Requip. But it also puts me to sleep so well that I do not wake up. All meds work different for every one. I actually don't mind the dreams, sometimes they are kind of fun. I know I'm wierd......

Can you tell me about the Algorithm? I am trying to find out as much as I can about RLS and the meds. Requip and Lyrica work sort of for me but not 100%. I have just upped the dosage of the Lyrica and will see how that does. I wish we could instant message on this site, sometimes it would make it ea...
