Sensation of being bitten

Post by crol »

I have suffered from RLS for several years. I am bothered by occasional bug bites and I wonder if other RLS patients experience the same. I believe I am actually being bitten by bugs and that the dopa medication makes me attractive to bugs but my wife thinks it is just a sensation caused by the medication since she can not find the bugs that bit me. I would appreciate any information anyhone may provide. Thanks

Oh, yeah, I get those too. Like little bee stings. They started when I was on Mirapex, but I still have them and haven't been on it for about two years. So. . .not sure it's med related.

Actually, when I read descriptions, it sounds a bit like neuropathy. DO you feel it in many different places, or only one? I get mine on my arms, legs, feet. Oh, and torso. So, I doubt it's neuropathy, but I certainly am not a doc!

Over the years, others have mentioned this, too, so it's definitely common among us.
