Hi to all- I am fairly new on here so please excuse if I have posted this in the wrong area. I'm looking for someone who can tell me if Savella ever caused them RLS at night while sleeping? I have been taking it for 5 days and only 12.5 twice daily. It seemed to help w/ fatique, etc and I really want to give it a chance for my FMS but am afraid of this RLS. Thanks in advance..
