Discovered I also have sever rls. Had a sleep study done Waking 29.5 times per hour. Tramadol made it possible for me not to even know my legs were moving. Now I have weened down from 6 tram per day to 1, I am now acutely aware of my legs squirming. Impossible to sleep. I don't want to increase tramadol again. Tonic water does not work. What else can I do? Feels like gerbils doing summersalts in my calves. It's horrible pain.
