Was wondering if anyone else was having the same issues as me. I had an L4/5 fusion in late September and my pain has been completely eradicated however with that a few new symptoms that are not so lovely have sprung up. I have started having pretty severe restless legs in the evening every single night. The twitching, skin crawling feeling has made it impossible to get any sleep. I told my doctor on my last visit and was given a steroid medpack and gabapentin along with requip. ( I had been off all medication, narcotic and gabapentin for over a month before this newest doctor visit)
Tonight is my second night on the medication and I have to admit the rls has not been an issue either night. Which is amazing, But I am finding myself waking every few hours anyway.
Anyone taking requip and if so are you finding it working for you but also giving you some sleep issues? Would love to hear your experiences and what worked/hasn't.
