Are you saying its just the pain waking you up and not the RLS. I get pain sometimes, in my calf, but only if the pramipexole isnt working properly. Otherwise, the pramipexole takes care of the pain.


I am on Ropinirole Slow Release 6mg taken midday which helps a lot



This pain is RLS, as soon as I move, walk around the pain goes only to return again shortly after.
