Well, my internist had me do a sleep test he and my husband just knew I had sleep apeana! I knew I did not but I did the test and no I did not have it.  Two months later with my fibro and fatigue so bad back to my doc I went with my husband(who is great, really lucky there) and I was telling him I was exhausted. He looked at my sleep test again and he said the only thing was they said I moved my legs around. He ask my husband if I kept him up moving my legs around and he said yes! Idid it alot! He gave me a pill for restless legs,this is something I  always laughed about when I saw the commercials. Go figure, I know someone with fibro of all things should know better than to judge! T smilewinkgrin is pill has changed my life!! I sleep, I went from getting up and down all night to gettig up once at night. Everything is better with rest, my pain level is lower, I can actually enjoy things again. I hope this lasts but I feel blessed right now.   yeah KCBLUES7 blush

How wonderful for you! What did the doctor prescribe for the restless leg syndrome?

I was wondering the same thing. I tried mirapex for restless leg and it made me worse. It felt like I had things crawling on me. So that didn't last long. I get up and walk and that seems to help.
