@inspect28 and @elizm I agree with elizm re: tonic water. It seems to work for me too – at least for the cramping! Maybe it justs helps with the hydration – but – different strokes…

@suecreader – stupid question – but where is the patch located on your body?

@suecreader – one other thing that seems to be involved with hip pain is the piriformis muscle. In reading/studying all this information piriformis keeps popping up and I do think it helps to stretch it – I'm sure if you 'google' it you'll find some stretches you can do.

@susan2018 – yup – sadly no wine, or any other alcoholic beverage for that matter, for dinner. And – curious about the recliner – I have noticed that also. Yesterday after an hour in the dentist (reclining) chair, pain and RLS were AWFUL!!!

@suecreader – You probably are much younger than I and have been dealing with these issues so much longer. Do you think that whatever the cause for lumbar surgery, could have some effect on the RLS? Also, in reading these posts – makes me wonder if the fibromyalgia contributes to the RLS? Seems I read of so many people that have Fibrom and also RLS? Hoping the Neupro continues to do the job for you!!!

@lioness – I've been cutting the 0.25 Mirapex tablets in half – (easy to lose them as they are so small before cutting!) – take 1/2 tab about 5pm – plus a tramadol and 100 mg gabapentin – hoping that will get me thru the evening. Then at bedtime I take another 1/2 Mirapex and gabapentin – hoping to get thru the night! Tell me again about the pickle juice – sweet or dill? bb
