About a year ago I had a gall bladder attack and had to be rushed to the hospital. The ER didn't know for sure what it was until they did some tests. The gall bladder pain was the worst. Well, as the gall bladder pain got worse RLS started and it was time for me to take my meds, but they wouldn't let me take them til they diagnosed me. I could not lay in bed due to the RLS. I was in severe pain from the gall bladder and SEVERE RLS. I actually think the RLS might have been worse because I had to keep jumping around. I was crying from the RLS and not the gall bladder. Well, when they finally decided I had a gall bladder problem, the dr. injected me with a pain med. MY RLS went away instantly. I can't begin to explain the relief I had. I still had some pain from the gall bladder, but my RLS was gone -- Thank God. Pain meds do work.
