Hi - I just read your comment re restless leg syndrome. I have had it since my early teens and it keeps getting worse and worse (I'm now 60). I cannot go on a long car trip, or even to a concert or lecture or movie without taking a load of requip, which then in 2 hours gives me the side effect of a major frontal headache.
I think most of my doctors think I'm exaggerating how bad it is. One doc put me on iron supplements, which upset my stomach. I even ordered an expensive TENS machine off the web, which, essentially did nothing.
I used to get immediate relief from a hot bath, but, that no longer works. Sometimes I have to just stand and read for a couple of hours until the flare passes. At this point, it is far more challenging to live with than the db. Please let me know if you have fouind anything that helps.
