I have been getting spasmodic leg pains on an occasional basis for some years. After a bad attack lasting for hours I saw my GP who prescribed Gabapentin. I only take a low dose at night but still get the pains and jerking but only on the odd occasion. I have been on statins for three years, anti-coagulants and sleeping tablets. have not being diagnosed RSL but goggled my symptoms and found this forum. Wondered if anyone gets the pain or it just the jerks ? I very rarely sleep for more than a few hours.
