Subject: Restless Leg Syndrome - Anyone Else With It ?

For the ages I've had trouble getting off to sleep, tossing and turning . Was told it was the Fibromyalgia and just newly diagnosed with RA. I've just googled RLS and RA and it seems they are connected ?? I feel like I have to keep moving my legs in bed to ease the pain in my feet. Anyone else suffer with this please ??

Hi KayJay i have got psoriatic arthritis, and have had RLS for 20yrs I also have bad night cramps wich i take quinine sulphate for. and if i forget to take the quinine the restless legs kick off.Dont know if its the tablets but they seem to work for me, maybe they might be worth trying?

Hi KayJay, I also have fms and I got reatless legs when I started on amitrptaline, so they trippled the dose and since then I am much better. That restless legs is a bloody nightmare.

Hi shaz i do suffer with swollen ankles and feet,i am fed up not being able to get my shoes on. Ihave recently bought lovely soft leather shoes in a half size bigger than i take and most days i cant even get them on, because of the swollen feet. Ihave just had moulds taken off my feet so i can have inserts made to put inside shoes to help with the pain and discomfort, i know wot you mean the pain in your feet is bloody awfull

Hi all. Bernie I'm on Amitrp as well. Think it's a stock in trade use for Fibro and it's helped my neck pain no end.

Had a really rough weekend my daughter injured her wrist Sat night and the hosp just Xrayed it and put a slint on - she goes back tomorrow so I've been helping her and I'm absolutely knackered. She's in a lot of pain as well. Visited Mum in the Nursing Home yesterday and that wiped me out as well. I'm hoping the meds for RA will help me with this overwhelming tiredness I feel.
