I havent been here in a while, but the last report I had was that Mirapex was wonderful and working like a charm. Over the past week, I'm not so sure. I have been experiencing some muscle pain in my legs and arms that I have never had before. I wondered if this could be related to anything else, working in the yard or lifting.......which I did around the time it started. But, this has been going on well past a normal day after soreness and starts with shooting pains but remains as a dull ache. My legs havent started their mindless jumping, but I am experiencing a tightness when trying to sleep, that I catch myself moving just to relieve it. This seems to be a new development. I am on .25mg per day, last night in an effort to relieve the uncomfortable feelings, I took a second dose about 4 hours after my first. This did seem to help and I was able to go to sleep. My next standing appointment at the neuro is not until October 3, I cannot get in any earlier. I am very hesitant about self medicating or stopping the dosage all together for a few days (I dont think I can handle the regression back to full blown). Just looking for advice from anyone who may have experienced this. Thanks in advance for any input!
