Hi, first time poster here so hello to you all.
As per the headline really, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia some 5 years ago, although I have had the symptoms for years before that. My legs have always been restless at night for as long as I remember, but I have put that down to having a flare up of fibro in the past. It always happens during the night, my pain meds (Tramadol) have no effect at all, & it is the worst feeling I have ever had, in fact I normally kick something really hard to experience another pain to try & take my mind off it. It feels like there are millions of electrodes fixed to my legs & they are all sending out electric shocks, staying still is impossible, & even though I can't walk far because of the fibro, shuffling around is the only thing that takes the edge off it. I had cancer some 27 years ago & believe me this is a lot worse than that, does any of the above sound like it is RSL would you say?
