I have been suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome for many years getting worse as I get older. I am taking Pramipexole tablets at night which help but since starting on MTX I tend to feel a bit sick after taking the Pramipexole. Not sure if it is the MTX at fault but it only seemed to start when I began the MTX medication. I decided to experiment last night and not take the tablet to see if I could manage without it. Definite mistake!! I went to bed at 10.30pm and was still awake at 3am after hours of trying to control the urge to constantly move my legs. I tried getting up and walking about, running on the spot, stretching, lying with my legs on top of the headboard, trying to sleep sitting up and lots of other weird attempts to stop my legs from moving. ( only other RLS sufferers will know what extremes we will go to to get some relief ) I finally gave up and took the Pramipexole at 3am.Had to be up at 7.30am so am feeling very tired now.
Does anyone else suffer with RLS and what do they take to help. Was wondering whether to go to see my doctor to see if there is anything else I can take.
