Hi Crochetqueen. Yes, I also have RLS and take Requip for it. The oddest thing has been happening of late to me. I also have sleep apnea and wear a c-pap mask. When my mask shifts and wakes me up early in the morning I have been having some really weird muscle activity. I told my psychotherapist and she said I should tell my psychiatrist next time I see him about this thing.
I awoke and it was as though I was getting a leg massage and my muscles were kind of being stretched but not gently. The feeling traveled up and down my legs and it wasn't very painful, just very disturbing. My arms also felt this kind of stretching and pulling feeling also. A couple days later I again awoke and my arms were really 'going to town' with this funny sensation. It was almost like a muscle seizure but then I nodded back to sleep and that was that.
I asked my therapist if she thought that this could have been what the Requip does while I am sleeping and I just happened to awaken while it was doing its hardest work. If medications do that to my body and my mind, I don't know if that is a good thing after all. Hmmmm. Just wondering if you are getting any of those types of feelings. L.
