I started with restless legs during pregnancy 8 years ago and it has never disappeared, just got worse, to the point where lack of sleep was affecting me during the day. I spoke with my doctor who recently started on 1mg ropinirole at night which has helped tremendously with my restless legs symptoms and I have begun to get some much needed sleep. However I still sometimes wake up early in the morning (2am) with extremely aching legs and have to take pain killers to help me to continue to get my much needed sleep and even on the nights I do sleep through I wake up with such aches in my legs that I need to take painkillers. Is it normal to still experience painfully aches in my legs despite taking ropinirole?
