Re: RLS w/body restlessness
I have had RLS for years also, and mine involves my pelvis/ SI joints as well as legs. Be sure you are not anemic, iron deficient or Vit D deficient. Serum ferritin and Vit D levels can be checked. I have found some relief with Sinemet (a Parkinson drug), Neurontin, plus magnesium 400mg and Calcium 500 mg at night. On bad nights, I take a muscle relaxant and sometimes a narcotic (Vicodin) just to get to sleep and quit moving, jerking, thrashing about in bed, keeping my husband awake too. I find massage helps and heat and when all else fails, I get up and do something, hence my middle of night posts on the healthboards.
