I developed RLS five yrs ago starting in my legs and eventually travelled all over my body. Unlike some people I donot have any pain but just that awful indescribable felling of anxiety and the need to move uncontrollably to satisfy the wretched feeling. After going to a neurologist and being put on Neurontin, all the medication did was make me gain twenty five lbs. in one and a half month. Feeling very unconfortable with the weight gain I weened myself from the medication and found a different solution. After searching in the internet I found many people that also didn't like Neurontin but found TRAMADOL, a non opiate pain killer works miracles. One pill, lowest dose and all the RLS disappears like magic. I have been takin my TRAMADOL now for almost five yrs. and have helped many others with this advice. I urge all that read this to try the TRAMADOL, for me it's been the miracle pill and many people have been using it since its been logged on other web sites. I hope this helps some but I wish all because only us who have this RLS know how terrible this is. Now I can actually go to the movies or take long car or air travel trips. Just another note, the TRAMADOL takes about an hr. to kick in but it lasts almost eight hrs or more. When you wake up and start moving you won't need any more pills till bedtime. Good luck to all.
