I first started having RLS about 13 years ago. As you can imagine i've been through every medication available, or so it feels. I'm finally at a point where im on Neupro patches 2mg, and Oxy 15mg. This has been fairly reliable, although i wake in the early hours in extreme pain. This is probably the Fibromyalgia i was diagnosed with.
About 2 years ago i started getting the same restless symptoms in my arms, and shoulders. Over the next year it worsened, to the point where the symptoms were in my arms, neck, and shoulders. I couldn't sleep because my upper body would violently spasm every few seconds.
So Oxy was added to the mix, and it stopped all the issues almost instantly. However the problems with my left arm and shoulder has returned. Exactly the same feelings as RLS.
Yesterday i encountered the really painful part of RLS in my right calf (was the original place when it all first started) The pain hasn't lessened at all, and last nights sleep was short.
So just wondered if anyone else had suffered with RLS in other places.
