I have had Restless leg syndrome for years. I have taken many different meds. and homeopathic alternatives through the years. Presently, I am taking Mirapex, but it is no longer helping.
Ever since I started walking again after I broke the tibia and fibula above my left ankle, I have experienced restlessness and pain ,especially in the left calf, but also the right calf. It is worse at night, but also sends me out of my chair during the day. I am also taking magnesium, homeopathic tablets for restless legs, and extra strength Tylenol for the pain. These sensations are driving me crazy because of the intensity.
I have PMR, and am presently on 4.5mg of Prednisone. I also have GCA.
Have any of you experienced these kind of sensations in your legs who have PMR.
Before I was diagnosed with PMR, I had restlessness in legs and thighs. It was very painful at times. I thought it was restless legs, but was then diagnosed with PMR.
Please share if you have any personal experience or knowledge about this situation.
I am going to see my surgeon tomorrow, so will also discuss this with him.
Thanks so much for your thoughts.
