jbmd :

Hi--I'll give you advice--sorry I can't treat or examine you or replace your local doctor's care. Restless leg syndrome is very disruptive to sleep. Have your doctors tested you for the associated disorders like iron deficiency or peripheral nerve problems? Have they tried any of the medications for restless leg? And, have you had this for a long time or is it new?

jbmd :

Are you taking any other medications, like for high blood pressure or depression? anything?
