I had my yearly MRI scan today for checking my MS deterioration (or hopefully lack of it) and while in the scan I worried that the total moving around of all my brain atoms was bound to trigger an RLS reaction.
I've had about 14 nights free of RLS now I've upped the evening dose of oxycontin and all was going well. My suspicions were right and the MRI has fried my brain atoms. Since lying down to sleep first my right big toe experienced the sharp stabbing pain- as though from a big thick sharp needle several times and then sure enough, less than 5 mins later the right leg kicked off. Walked round the room, did some cleaning and put some laundry away and when I tried to lie down again, the left leg kicked off. I've just taken a solpadeine max ( codeine & paracetemol) and will walk and stretch a bit more then watch some catch up episodes of Outlander on Amazon.
Anyone else experience bad RLS after an MRI scan? Thankfully I only have one a year!
Take care fellow RLSers
