Hi Cat66- and welcome.

I'm not sure if what you describe is actually restless legs syndrome.

That is defined more by an absolute urge to move your legs to relieve a tickling feeling rather than absolute pain. Although some people do experience pain as part of the syndrome.

What medicines are you on and how does sweet syndrome manifest itself?

Again- if you read through some recent posts , you will get some ideas that may help you.

There is a list of contraindicated medicines on this site.


Worth checking out.
