Donna, Glad you are finding continued relief using the Requip. That is great. Certainly with all that rain you ladies have seen at least one rainbow???? Glad to know that I am not the only one that the high temps and humidity seems to affect adversely.

I'll check these sites out. My diabetes has been controlled with diet and exercise, so I don't think it is the problem. Talked with a co worker who has severe neuropathy and he told me the neurologist I will be seeing is the one who diagnosed his neuropathy. We had a discussion on tests and such. If...

If it wasn't so frightening, I'd say Elavil certainly could be a test for RLS! In my case it took only one pill to set the pain and reflexes off the charts.

Curious as to what tests I should ask about in connection to this type of RLS. Thanks, rowing like crazy see all that hope churn...
