    Anyone else in this boat? I get leg cramps and spasms a lot. Is that a "symptom" of FM or could it be from my arthritis?

    I would think if it's muscular, it would be FM as arthritis affects the joints, etc. I do get sore legs...thighs, calves, etc. Very hard and sore.

    Is this what you're talking about? If so, pretty sure it's FM. Sorry....)-:

    This is the worst part for me. The muscles in front of my hips, the tops of my legs, and now the calves are always burning as if I had just finished a long bike ride. Alot of times they cramp and spasm too. Stretching helps alot. Wouldn't arthritis involve the joints more than the muscles?

    Have you tried Requip or Mirapex? I couldn't tolerate Mirapex but am doing well on Requip. I don't have RLS but I do have a lot of leg pain - always have.
