bchambers, i am taking requip for RLS...and I am not seeing any results from it...I still awake in the middle of the night with pain in my legs...sometimes, I can not feel my arms or is very scary and sometimes I am very fearful of this. it is almost like paralysis...what if my house is on fire when this happens and I can not move? Maybe if you continue to take higher dose, then you should ask your doctor to try something else...hope it all work out for you. I am convinced that I am experiencing KARMA...Someone brought it to my attention, and I have been studying it. I have been a great person all my life and could not come up with any other logical answer why God would allow me to go through this stuff! Study it for yourself...

RLS is caused from allergic reactions to synthetic chemicals. Normally the individual has a IgG antibody levels to these chemicals. Some of these chemicals are found in the mattress materials along as in the apparel made from synthetic fabrics. Source reduction will normally eliminate RLS.
