    I have been under the belief that my legs jerking and the discomfort that drives me to the edge of insanity while I'm sitting or trying to sleep, is restless leg syndrome. When I saw my Dr. at the pain clinic last Friday I asked him for some requip. He asked me why I thought I had RLS so I explained the symptoms. He told me I couldn't have RLS because the drug of choice for it was Lortab and since I take oxycontin and it is stronger than Lortab he said there is no way I could still have RLS with all those meds on board. So I asked him what did I have then and he just kind of dismissed me. Nothing unusual for him. Any ideas suggestions etc? Thanks. LuAnn

    I'm no expert, that's for sure, but it sounds like you have what I have, and that is restless leg syndrome. You're right,what else could it be??
    I think you have to see someone else who knows more about our symptoms. If your RLS is not treated you must be miserable. Not fair----you need Requip so you can relax and sleep.
    I wish you the best,
