Anyone here have restless legs or nervousness

Not sure if my bp med is causing it but my bp is almost normal now. Im on verapamil and its not listed as a side effect. Im serious when i say i can shake my legs back and forth and rotate my feet for hours. Ive also doubled my walking but i never had any trouble before.

Also should i be taking calcium and mag before bed

Re: Anyone here have restless legs or nervousness

I've had restless legs. It is just nervousness manifesting itself in your legs. Exercise helps and also medication can help. I would suggest you talk to your doctor. I know when I have RLS, I can't sleep at all and spend most of the night laying in bed. Go for a jog and it will be gone immediately.

Oh yea. You can also take a cold shower after the run. That also helps.

Melatonin will help you sleep.

Kava and Valerian are helpful for anxiety and nervousness. I like to drink the tea, so it adds the effect of the warm tea before bed.

That's all I've got.

Re: Anyone here have restless legs or nervousness

I have the same symptom it feels like restless legs. It started about 2 weeks ago. I also take verapamil in the brand form Calan SR I am trying to get off this drug now. I started taking it about 5 months ago. I did find that it does cause muscle cramps and pins and needles. I also get it in my arms. I will see my Dr next week to try something else to control my palpations and high blood pressure.

Re: Anyone here have restless legs or nervousness

I have to move my legs constantly, when I lie in bed my legs are moving. If I do not move them they start to feel achy and heavy.
