Estrogen and restless leg syndrome

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen and restless leg syndrome


691935 tn?1421030690 Cold (air) on your legs can help a bit, but what really works is a small dose of a pain pill (narcotic) The only non-narcotic pain med that I found to work is Ultram (Tramadol). It is by rx as well. There are some meds that are made just for Restless Leg Syndrome that you may want to talk to your doc about. It's horrible as I suffer from it as well.
2011699 tn?1328936953 So glad you asked this question. I have recently been having this leg pain as well. It happens at night when I lay down - sometimes during day. It's a weird pain with cramps. So I looked it up and it has all the signs of "Restless Leg Syndrome". Except that nowhere on that RLS it says is caused by HepC though I'm "guessing" hep c is what's causing it. Bill made a suggestion about testing for rheumatoid arthritis. When I go to dr. again I will report the RLS feeling.
Avatar n tn I have a weak right leg, and a weak spot just above my right knee. When the weakness begins in the leg, within a couple of mins, my whole body is weak. I thought I needed iron tablets, but those don't work anymore. Ladies, thanks for your input, it really helped. And yes, I also thought I had MS and I did fit some of the symptoms. Today, I told my husband that I should just walk into the emergency, he was shocked that the weakness and heavy head was that bad.
Avatar n tn I thought it could be related to sciatica or restless leg syndrome, but I have never been diagnosed with either?
Avatar n tn no numbness or anything on the back of my leg. While the leg is numb, it still gets itcy and it is very irritating to scratch it. If I stand or walk for too long, the burning sensation comes into play, and I have to sit down, because it also hurts my lower back, makes my back feel like it will break if I don't sit down. This has been going on for 23 years! And not one doctor can tell me what is wrong...
Avatar n tn I was in a T-bone accident which caused a lot of nerve and mussle damage to my left leg and back about 3 mnths ago. I developed a rash on my leg all around shortly after also still hot to touch. Is this from the nerve damage because I am now getting another rash behind my left arm. It is not painful to touch but I did have abdominal pain, heart racing, headache. My physio therapist thought it may be shingles???
Avatar n tn Also, since I have both of these diseases and myofascial pain syndrome I use a TENS Unit and often times I put it on my legs to stop the twitching. Talk to your Doctor about FM/CFIDS, restless leg syndrome and medication. Yes, your legs will become very tired if you have Chronic Fatigue; they'll feel like they belong to an elephant instead of you. Flare ups come and go. Sometimes you will stay in a flare up for years if you don't get help. Med's will help. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I have a lot of MS symptoms which I know can be other things. This stuff has been going on for about 3 years with no answers and I am fed up. I’m 2007 I was diagnosed after a sleep clinic with "restless leg syndrome" and told that I never enter into the REM sleep but that they clinic did not know why so that explains why I have "Chronic Fatigue syndrome"....I was diagnosed in 2009 with Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Headaches.... I see the following drs....
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar f tn Sometimes I will have six months of back to back flares- fibromyalgia, then stomach, then rosacea, then migraines, then bladder and vulvodynia, then my period decides to show up after a year of absence, then maybe I'll get a surprise and develop something new and unexpected. I feel like I'm playing minesweeper. I had IBS and restless leg syndrome before I could even speak full sentences, and was constantly ill with strep.
Avatar n tn Good luck with your search for an answer. Wilson's Syndrome has been debunked as charlatinism, and Dr. Wilson no longer practices medicine. Welcome to the forum, and best of luck with whatever course of treatment you take.
Avatar n tn I went to diabetes and nutrition counseling (as well as changing my lifestyle with eating and exercise) and they all said they think I have POCS syndrome and so did the GYN. They all suggested that I increase my dose to 1000mg so the Doc did. I have lost 3 lbs in 2 days since and blood glucose levels are done so I am hopeful.
Avatar f tn Hormone replacement therapy helps overcome this sensation. If this is predominantly in legs then it can be restless leg syndrome. It is also seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Take up yoga, deep breathing exercise, walking etc to relieve stress. Music and aerobics are also good stress busters. Drink plenty of fluids and water (not caffeine), eat fresh fruits and vegetables and keep yourself busy throughout the day.
Avatar f tn depression, anxiety, panic attacks, restless leg syndrome, dizziness, and loss of impulse control meaning I will feel immediately FURIOUS over something as small as not being able to put my contact in the first time. This is NOT like me. Please help me. I can't live like this. Wellbutrin is not working out for me. I don't know a safe way to get off of it and get my life back.
Avatar n tn Im almost possible it has something to do with my ears and sinuses. I though at first it was chronic fatigue syndrome but I dont know. When I dont feel like **** I feel great.
Avatar f tn i am 13 weeks pregnannt have extreme anxiety 19 yrs old please lemme kno wat yu think i read up on restless leg syndrome toi..sound like tht ?? p.
9648 tn?1290094807 My mom takes neurontin for burning feet. It's also used for restless leg syndrome and peripheral neuropathy. She's 87 and takes 7 a day so should not hurt you, only help. I was at clinic yesterday and took them my bone scan results. They are arranging a consult with an endocrinologist. I can think of lots of endo-related causes for bone loss: malfunctioning parathyroid would stop the process of rebuilding bone, low estrogen (hello interferon) causes bone loss.
1323357 tn?1274826939 an increase of adrenaline and decrease of dopamine - and this feeling of depersonalistion and derealisation is a result. You are not going insane and this will rebalance itself. What makes it persist is that usually a person does not know what it is and so worries/creates more stress this creates a self-perpetuating cycle.
Avatar n tn She smiled and looked at the nurse in the room and said actually no I don't think your crazy and I (she) just had a big seminar about it with the doctors around town. She said it is directly related to the hormones in a womens cycle. That's not to say it can't happen at other times of the month. There are "triggers as she said. Caffein, alcohol and so forth. I felt better. I take medicine for it and sometime right before my cycle starts I have to take more because it can get so bad.
298579 tn?1192250448 I've never really mentioned it to doctors as it isn't all the time and my family has a history of irritable bowel syndrome (although I don't think I get it) so I'd put it down to that. For me, I wouldn't say it was every time I had sex but then, that may be due to lack of arousal sometimes!!! I do get it pretty much every time I orgasm through masterbation. Also a few times I have woken with the worst cramps and it would have to go and have a bowel movement and it would go after about 20mins.
Avatar n tn Now most nights when I wake up with night sweats I can at least get right back to sleep. The leg cramps are gone until I try to taper down the magnesium to 400 or 500 mg. elemental and then they return. So here, at last, is my question: Has anyone else had similar experiences with gabapentin, or know anything about it in relation to magensium deficiencies? So many of the gabapentin side effects are consistent with hypothyroidism, but I can't find any research in that direction.
1809955 tn?1448540677 Even with all of the instances of postpartum thyroiditis, a family history of both grandmothers having graves disease, extreme frontal neck pain, difficulty swallowing, intermittant hoarseness, restless leg syndrome, a thyroid ultrasound that showed many cysts (colloid and mixed) and a heterogenous echotexture a high reverse T3 (not sure I understand it); TSI of 51 (can't find what is normal except by reading that having ANY TSI is abnormal); All other labs are low normal (Free T4, Free T3 and
Avatar n tn I stretched my jaw, pulled back my shoulders for a stretch a few times a day and scheduled myself for a 30 minute back, shoulder, neck and head massage followed by a relaxing bath and long sleep. I woke up refreshed and alleviated my heavy head syndrome. Periodically I catch myself tensing up and when I do, I force myself to go a little limp. For example, I catch myself sitting upright as I type this blog, now I'm correcting myself to lay back as I type.
Avatar n tn If only legs are being affected and at night only, then it can also be restless leg syndrome. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
798555 tn?1292791151 I also continue to get knee pain and leg pain. Today my low back, hips, thighs, and knees hurt awful. Some days it doesn't hurt at all. It's just strange. The chronic pain is the one from standing more than 15 minutes and the burning/aching behind the hips. I also can't exercise as well as I used to before all this started. I'm now up to 3 grains of Erfa and still on 15mg Cortef and I have stable daily temps, but my waking basal still is 97.2-97.6 most days.
Avatar f tn I'm 27 years old and was diagnosed with low estrogen 4 years ago. Well my problem is that I noticed today when having a bath that just inside the entrance to my vagina feels really dry and wrinkly. The best way I can describe it is like a shriveled up prune. This is not normal for me and I was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me what could cause this. Obviously I fully intend to see my GP practice nurse about this problem.
Avatar f tn I did have an issue like this when I was a teenager, had a lot going on back then and had leg and hip pain and had convinced myself then that it was cancer. After all kinds of xrays they found nothing and that is when they figured out it was anxiety related. So I am hoping that it is nothing major, maybe it is a muscle? I am just so worried, I am going to a breast specialist in 2 days and am freaking out. It does seem odd how we all have anxiety issues....
Avatar f tn It also could be RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I developed it when I hit perimenopause. I don't feel anything when I am in the throws of my day, but let me sit at my desk for a while or on the couch at night watching TV and I get the itchy creepy crawlies that make me jump and itch everywhere. Mine is so bad that I can even get it in my arms and spots across my back. I take Mirapex for it and it has relieved the symptoms completely.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
