She has been taking carbidopa/levadopa and had probably increased the amount she takes as she seems to have the leg and arm continuously. At the onset, she is suffering a lot of pain and discomfort. She is wondering if the arm problem has started because of the carbidopa. She has had to sleep on the floor because of her discomfort. Soma seems to relax her a bit. I guess my question is this. Is this all connected, arms and legs, or is it a symptom of something else.
Hi, restless leg syndrome (RLS) can be treated by underlying illness, if known. For example, a search for iron deficiency by blood testing to reveal underlying iron deficiency anemia by supplying iron. Elimination of caffeine, smoking and alcohol can be very helpful. Getting better sleep and exercise can help some persons affected by restless legs. Drugs include carbidopa-levodopa, opioids , tramadol for intermittent symptoms, carbamazepine, clonazepam, diazepam, triazolam, and clonidine.
I developed what I think is restless leg syndrome 3 months after knee replacement surgery. In talking to a friend today, I found that she has had the same issues and she is taking the same antidepressant, citalopram. Has anyone ever heard of this drug causing these symptoms?

It should help. Please be careful with the Xanax, don’t take more than is prescribed and remember Xanax is addictive as well. Warm baths helps and walking a bit. Stay away from things that can raise anxiety like sugars, sodas and caffeine. I wish you all the best.
Lead a stress free life, have proper sleep and do regular exercise as with a good lifestyle sometimes the remissions of restless leg syndrome diminish completely.

I would suggest you to go to a neurologist for proper follow up. Take care!
Ask your physician to prescribe you some Neurontin (gabapentin) for general malaise, anxiety and muscle cramps, Requip for the restless leg syndrome and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. The reason for this longer depression and insomnia symptoms is because Tramadol, besides affecting the opioid receptors, has an effect on the serotonin receptors in the central nervous system.

Now I can try to break away from this tramadol (ultram) I have a full bottle of vicodin and a bottle of valium ... and a very strong survival instinct. Every morning I just hate having to take these 2 1/2 pills to start my day. Today I cut it to 2 1/8 of a pill .... and I felt the difference by nightfall. Tommorrow I watch the kid while they are packing .... and then it begins.
I have some minor anxiety now along with sweating, freezing, insomnia, a crawling skin feeling and restless leg syndrome and I am on day 4 of the withdrawals.

i am interested in dialoguing with anyone about restless leg syndrome. i got it from tramadol. i am successfully dealing with symptoms with hylands restlful legs. however it is not resolving itself. everytime i exercise it returns in full force. it is not just an annoying thing that interupts sleep. for me, there is a greater feeling of disturbance. i get an add or adhd component. i can't concentrate and feel generally jumpy and unbalanced.
I don't get restless leg syndrome, I get restless body syndrome. I have been weaning for what feels like forever, but when I get down to just a few vics a day it is hell. I toss and turn all night and that is on ambien. But I feel like >>>> if anyone can relate. The way you feel after doing coke or mescolin and your coming down.

I can't explain how they feel other than they are just so weak and weather I am laying down, walking or sitting, they ache and feel like restless leg syndrome. I decided to stop taking it for one reason I didn't want to be dependent on a drug to get me through the day. Also, I stayed constipated for days at a time. I have Xanax, but really don't want to take that either. If I do I'll take it to sleep. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I don't know how I will make it.
I hope you had a good night of sleep. The restless leg syndrome is oftentimes a part of the withdrawal process. When you get to such low dosages, withdrawal symptoms might surface. It sounds to me that you are decided to succeed and put this issue behind you, try these tips to alleviate the pain: Try taking calcium supplements as that might help to ease the muscle aches.
Tramadol is a tough one. Since you took it for so long you probably should have done a slower taper. Anyway it may take a couple weeks to get your sleep back and the RLS to go away. Try eating a banana everyday....theres something called Hylands that OTC thats helps with the legs. A long hot bath before bed could help too. Good luck.

I have been taking tramadol for three and a half years for a severe case of restless leg syndrome. It has always worked well for the rls symptoms. My problem is I am now taking 400mg a day and the medication is no longer working. I tried tapering and the rls was raging I couldn't sleep or work. At this point I don't know what to do. My doctor wanted me to try Norco but I feel I would be in the same boat. I am an alcoholic with twenty nine years of sobriety.

I also tried to quit cold turkey. I know exactly what you are going through. My insomnia and restless leg syndrome were some of the worst parts about the withdrawals. Unfortunatly I don't really have any advice that I know will work for you because I ended up getting on suboxne a few days ago because I just couldn't get through the WD's. However, a few things that helped me when I was having severe insomnia were exercise, like everyone says.. particularly walking on a treadmill..

Well after that I was fine for awhile, but then I was prescribed tramadol for Restless Leg Syndrome. I've been addicted to this stuff for like 8 months, and I just hate the feeling that I cant get through the day without taking these stupid pills. I havent told anybody, I'm too ashamed of it. The problem with tramadol is that its so easy to get, you can just order it online w/o a sript and it's there the next day.
Though invented much earlier, it was developed in the late 1970’s by a pharmaceutical company named Grunenthal gmbH. It is mainly used in treatment of restless leg syndrome and fibromyalgia in human beings. Besides, it has some other veterinary usage for rabbits, cows, dogs etc. and also in transportation of fish. Whether the use is on human beings or on the animals or on fish, tramadol works on the central nervous system and works as a sort of pain killer or stress reducer.
