Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome

Hi can anyone help please. My mum has PD and at the moment she can't settle in bed and keeps turning from side to side for the 1st hour or so. She keeps saying it's her legs so we think she might have restless leg syndrome. Can anybody help?

I take ropinerole for my tremors but it's actually restless leg syndrome medicine.

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member That's to bad about the doctor but have you looked into another doctor that may be more helpful? I think I hit the jackpot with Dr Bradley. She's been great listening to me and helping me out.

My friends Dr. told her to take Neurnrotin capsule or Gabupentin and put it in a small glob of hand sanitizer and rub it on where it hurts , she used it on her forehead for the shingles and low and behold her restless leg syndrome has not bothered her since, As long as she doe this, she has had RLS for 30 or more years. It helped her Shingle pain also. Strange but true.

Does ropinerole stop RLS, as having a smoke of a bong stops me driving in Australia,

Its a problem I have restless leg syndrome, I cannot find anything that helps me from a doctor, so I tried as I read on the internet that a couple of puffs on a bong with weed, stops it dead
