Restless Legs Syndrome

Well I don't really know where to start, this is my first time on here. I have been diagnosed with RLS but lately I have been getting the same irritable and painful feeling in my neck shoulder and arm, I take oxycodine (Targinact ) which are really good for my legs but don't seem to touch my arms etc. I've tried loads of different types of medication but nothing else works like Targinact. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Targinact would not be site specific- ie - it either works for all your body or not at all. There may be other factors at work - you say you have carpal tunnel syndrome - I don't know if that has any effect or if you are taking meds for that.

You could talk to your dr about increasing the Targinact if that would help.

It may be that you are exposing yourself to rls triggers - it might be worthwhile keeping a food diary to see if there are any connections.?

Antihistamines and other meds are high on the rls trigger list- check list on

Good luck .
