Restless leg syndrome

4 posts in this topic

I know I've been full of questions lately... I got thinking about this last night and haven't seen any correlation between the two but wonder if there is. I have been battling with it for about 3 years (right before I was diagnosed with CREST) Does anyone else deal with this and if you do is there something that can help? I try and walk 2 miles everyday it tends to help, but there are occasions when it doesn't... It's really annoying.


Thanks again

Hi Marsha,


Scleroderma is associated with sleep disorders such as restless leg syndrome and I've found a link for you to an earlier thread on Restless Legs and also information on Sleep disorders and Scleroderma which I hope you'll find interesting.


I have suffered a little with it in the past and agree; it is really annoying! ;) I think you'll find some helpful suggestions on the earlier thread; I must admit I didn't actually do anything to alleviate it myself and it did pass off eventually. :)

I've been suffering from RLS for as long as I can remember.

Right now I take 30mg of pain medication 30 min before bed and lidocaine patches on the most sensitive areas if I wake up in the night and the pain has traveled.


It's a huge issue for me, almost more than the sclero and fibro.
