Hi Juska, Nice to see someone who can relate so well! I am very frustrated today because I found out I was denied insurance coverage due to high blood pressure. Last night I took my usual dose of hydrocodone but I still couldn't go to sleep until about 12:30 even though I was really tired around 10p...

I only get the creepy, crawly sensations in my left leg, although sometimes I do get pain in both calves. I've always wondered why it's dominate on my left side. At its worst it has crawled up the entire left side of my body - leg, trunk (stomach, etc.), arm... I wonder if we'll ever figure this one...

I, as well as some others get a bit stimulated by the ultram. I have to space it an hour apart as well as taking an ambien otherwise I don't hardly sleep at all. I took a 50mg Tramadol last night around 8:30-9pm and it kept me up until 3am. It was weird. I did get a lot of house cleaning done which...

Hi Jan, thanks for chiming in! I will continue to update my progress in this thread. I have been trying to put off any meds for as long as possible at night time in order to check on my symptoms (see if they're still there - unfortunately they are). I've found that some nights I have very tight pres...

Good topic. I tried Requip awhile back and had horrible side effects - I ended up in my bed in the fetal position with the lights off because I was so nauseous and dizzy. Same thing the following night. That was enough of that. This makes me a little scared to try what seems like the sister drug, Mi...

Thanks Lynne. Honestly I don't mind starting from the bottom (minus the ones I've already tried). After seeing how many problems others have gone through trying to get prescriptions for pain meds in the treatment of RLS that's not something I want to go through if at all possible. It does stink beca...

Lynne, I'm so glad someone was able to respond! I am very nervous going in to see a RLS doc for the first time since I've been self medicating on my own (with much research done). Do you mind if I ask what medication(s) he has prescribed for you? I know you answered my other post so you may remember...

Dallas, Texas - Doctor Recommendations?

Thought I'd take a stab and see if anyone here from Dallas can recommend a good RLS doc. I know there are at least one or two recommended on the rls.org website (it's been awhile since I've checked) but I wanted to check first and see if anyone has any personal experiences that they'd like to share....

Lynne (that's my middle name btw, same spelling ;)) - Thank you for the warm welcome and advice. I am a research freak so I'm all about researching these meds! ;) Unfortunately I do usually know more than the docs I see which I find frustrating. Because of my age they often tend to talk down to me s...

Hi, new here - Hydrocodone for treating RLS, advice wanted

I have been experiencing RLS symptoms since childhood. I remember agonizing "growing pains" and "insomnia" as a young child. As I grew up I went through phases where it was difficult to sit through movies. I had no idea why, and it was so frustrating! I am currently 24 years old (female) and in coll...

Re: clonazapem

I have been taking Klonopin for about a year now. When I first started out my doc prescribed me 1mg. I experienced exactly what you did. I felt hungover and exhausted the next day. I also felt depressed. I immediately knew I had to go down to a smaller dose, which I did. I currently take .5 mg at ni...
