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

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.

im not taking any more drugs. I am exercising. Nothing natural to take?

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.

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.

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.
