Restless arms??
Oct 30, 2016
... Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned, I can't predict when it'll happen, due to that I don't want to spend money on tablets that will just end up lying around until I potentially, just so happen to get restless arms/legs one night. Do you know of anything at all that doesn't involve over the counter medication that may help? (4 replies)

... Our brains are anemic (no iron reserve), not really our bodies. We with RLS that is. That lack of iron has caused us to have a lousy dopamine transport system. The vast majority of the world can take melatonin, antidepressants and antihistamines and never feel so much as a twinge of RLS. We can't because those things compete with dopamine and we already have so little... (4 replies)

... Take one 25mg capsule of ferrous bisglycinate on an empty stomach before bed. Get's rid of the RLS within 60 minutes. If you're taking antidepressants, antihistamines, melatonin, metformin, statins or calcium channel blockers, or even a big evening meal or lots of sugar alcohols (ie splenda) you may need to take two capsules.

... I am the same. If I am standing and working, my legs are not going crazy. The problem is that with my back and hips, I cannot stand for more than ten minutes at a time. I was on two Sinamet at bedtime and the doctor changed it to two during the day and two at bedtime. I hate to take too much meds but I'm desperate to get rid of the feeling of something crawling under my... (2 replies)
... tanyl patch 75mcg. I was in a fog all the time and fell asleep all over the place. The Fentanyl is for severe arthritis. With all this I still had pain and my arms and legs would jerk and flail during the night and sometimes in the daytime for eight to ten hours.

... are on pramipexole. I took that for a long time and found out that studies indicate that it augments the RLS. My RLS started manifesting during the day and my arms became involved. I had to wean off of the pramipexole and will never take it again. The withdrawal was horrible but necessary. I am currently taking Lyrica. ... (3 replies)

... @Blacktea- I'm an extreme neewbie here but a long time sufferer (45 yrs). Reading your explanation of RLS was informative and much more understandable than any other I've read. Thank you for that. I find it interesting that you mention dopamine 'release' being triggered by iron, quinine, turmeric and potassium. Perhaps for me that is an issue as I am allergic to quinine & iron... (10 replies)

... Hmmm, so you're not taking any other medications...ie...statins, antacids, antihistamines, beta blockers? Any medical conditions besides RLS? Even obesity/overeating has been implicated with the onset and/or severity of RLS. Well, knowledge is power. So I'll pass along what I know and maybe you can figure out a way to improve your RLS enough to get more sleep. People... (10 replies)
