This link makes such sense to me, I can relate totally. I never have a full nights sleep, Most is a four hour stretch, I am so envious of folk who get an 8 hour sleep. So maybe this is why I always have aches and pains, nothing mind blowing, just weary !! (apart from being 58 years old).

The last post mentioned getting a bed that doesn't wiggle!! We got a memory foam mattress a couple of weeks ago, it is to be recommended. I can slip out of bed without too much disruption, (as I have done this morning at 4 am). Now, an hour later, my legs appear to have settled, hopefully enough to ...

Hi, I woke up at 4 am and needed to 'stretch' for a while, so I find myself looking thru this thread. From despair at the beginning, to a new hope towards the end.
I wonder how Brandy is now. I hope all is good for you Brandy.

best wishes, Betty

Gill, I am also in the UK, and my GP prescribed Requip (ropinerole) for me. I have been taking it for 9 months so far.

Does anyone want to get this 'silly movie game' rolling again??

Yes, I occasionally get it in my arms, but not the shoulders. Only answer for me is to get up and do something for about 45 minutes, this is whilst I have already taken my meds and am trying to get to sleep.

I am still on the requip, taking.25 at lunchtime .25 at 5pm, .5 at around 8pm and 1mg at around 10 pm, total 2mg daily. It is working 'OK', sometimes a little breakthrough when I walk about and work thru it and it settles. I don't want to up the daily dose. Only thing is I wake pretty often thru the...

Yes, this only sleeping for an hour or so at a time has been happening to me over the last say 4 months. I sleep say from 12 midnight to 6am, waking up every hour or every 90 minutes, then at perhaps 5 or 6 am, my legs start and I have to get up. This is with just using Requip. If I take a sleeping ...

I'll let everyone know what I think of the memory foam, cos I am always pretty skeptical about these 'wonder things'. I won't have it until next Friday cos I have also ordered a mattress topper for the spare bed, which is not a standard size and that holds dispatch up by a day or so. I'm afraid that...
