Do I get what has been called ' Restless Leg Syndrome' What is the answer here? I've gone for walks, I have taken 'SOMA, DOXEPIN, FLEXERIL,' BOUGHT A BODY PILLOW, LOST WEIGHT, GONE TO A SHRINK,DID A NICE RUB DONE OF MY LEGS WITH SOME LOTION BEFORE BED.' I am now just at a complete loss. They keep me up all night; I'm rollin' on daily 3hrs of sleep... if that!! Any SERIOUS ideas anyone might have that could even try to help me?
Please consult your doctor about Requip and also try meditation and acupuncture. All three may be needed to help you put this symptom to rest. There are several meditations you could try... start simple and try a breathing meditation that centers on the restless leg syndrome. You could also try Cognitive Behavior Therapy... please look into all of these solutions and find the best one to suit you and your schedule.
Winter Warrior: I use Gabapentin for my RLS. It works well for me at 300mg 3 times per day. Also, I recently had dental work done and was prescribed hydrocodone for pain and it gave me complete relief from RLS. I hope you found a good solution a while ago! Been a while since you posted.
My father suffered from restless leg syndrome as well.
At first they put him on Neurontin but that only work for a short period of time.
Just recently he started taking Relaxis. It works for him.
The only downside to the medication is there's no generic and it can be costly.
Ask your doctor about Relaxis? It certainly can't hurt to look into it.
