Okay, my husband has restless legs that kick when he is in a relaxed position or sitting. This causes him a very poor night of sleeping. Also he has pain in his groin, his back, and his balance is not good. We saw a neurologist who took MRI's and mentioned physical therapy but the findings were inconclusive. He had very little confidence and did not want to take another MRI. We saw a second neurologist and he said his condition was complicated and we should go to Miami where there is a clinic with various doctors, and there was nothing he could do, so he did not want to waste his time. We live in West Palm Beach and we are looking for answers for this problem that seems to have worsened! Any suggestions?

Thankyou....I am 37 year old Mother of six children aged from 13 years to 2 years...I have had Restless Legs for most of my life. My mother would massage them when I was a child until I could get to sleep, however now my aged Mother is 1000 klms away and I am often up three times a night having hot showers and attempting to get to sleep before the nag starts again. I don t have time to sit with my legs up as I have been told to, but do so if possible time wise. Can you suggest something that would help? I know of numerous women who live with this problem who would be simply delighted for some advice. Thankyou Anna

My husband takes 0.5 mg of ropinirole for restless legs. He used to take two a day but a couple of weeks ago he started taking only one and he was doing fine. He had no symptoms of RLS. Now he wants to try and stop taking it all together and see if the RLS stays away. But the instructions say do not suddenly stop taking the medicine. Is it okay to take one every other day for a week or so and then go every two days or is there another way he should go to stop taking it all together?
