Hi barbfin, & welcome to the site. I have never heard of getting restless leg syndrome from taking Savella before, but everyone reacts differently to different meds. They do list swelling of the lower legs as a side effect & also raised blood pressure. You did not list any other meds that you take or other conditions, so I am going to give you the link to the side effects. I encourage you to read it thru, & if you feel this is causing your problem you should speak to your prescribing physician, & also please report it to the FDA Med Watch program at 1-800-332-1088. I wish you the best & hope you are feeling better...
