I had a bunion op under general anaesthetic four days ago and had been really worried about my jumpy legs after it as I knew I have to stay resting with it raised for two weeks. however I have not had one single jerk or any rls symptom since! I am surmising that there was something either in the GA itself or that they gave me as painkillers through the vein while under. It could well be Tramadol as I read on here that that can be a treatment. Whatever it was it is wonderful and I'd love to know exactly what. Anyone know how to find out? I'm expecting it to restart anytime now as it wears off but what a wonderful break from it I've had! Only you guys know just how wonderful. It's even worth the pain of the op which I can control with painkillers. No such luck with rls. I've been on Ropinerole for years now and gone up to the max dose of 4 a day but having the dreaded augmentation. Wish I had the courage to come off it, have break and go back.
