Input on recent onset of restless leg syndrome

Posted by @serenity1 in Just Want to Talk, Jun 12, 2012

I have fibromyalgia and have recently has total knee surgery. Now I am experiencing what I believe may be restless leg syndrome. I've had fibromyalgia for at least 7 years. Since my surgery experience restless leg and cannot go to sleep at night. The symtoms start in late evening around 10 and last several hours, Does anyone have similar symtoms and can share about this. I'm glad to share any fibromyalgia symtoms and any muscle, bone and joint symtoms.
Thank you.

Yes,Serenity, I have had RLS for about 19 years or so. It was rare then, only once in a while but tormenting. I could nessage my legs and it would go away. The older I get, the worse it gets. I have it every night now and it is really tormenting. I message my legs and I use a muscle roller (with wheels) on the calves of my legs and sometimes when I can't bear it anymore because I am so sleepy and tored, I apply a muscle creme (like BenGay) heavely to my legs so it will burn so much that the burn over takes the restless leg syndrome. Doctors don't know what to do so I am seeing an Herbalist. Sometimes my legs and feet cramp. It just keeps getting worse. It's no fun for sure.
