Restless Leg Syndrome During the Day?

I've had fibromyalgia for about 16 years.
Have calf pain that I thought was because of vit. D deficiency. The intense cramping got better after I took supplements, but the calf pain continues.

The symptoms sound a lot like RLS, but I have it during the day.
-pain in both calves
-more comfortable moving my legs
-hurts when my legs dangle as I'm sitting
-burning, itching, painful
-can't sit still, want to move my calves to workout the pain
-calves seem "on edge". Not twitching, just tense/not quite shaking
-feet can go to sleep easy (not all the time)

Any thoughts?
Thank you.

Re: Restless Leg Syndrome During the Day?

One or more of the following treatments have reduced or eliminated the symptoms of RLS or Periodic Limb Movement Syndrome in some people:

1. Reduction/elimination of prescription med which is causing problem.

2. Balance of electrolytes, including magnesium (don't rely on lab tests, there are many reasons for this).

3. Increase in iron (again, iron levels may be normal on lab tests...but don't increase iron without a doc's consent).

4. Antibiotic treatment

Hope this helps!
