I was recently diagnosed with RLS... in a way it makes sense... I have always had leg pain, but there are other symptoms that shouldnt have anythign to do with it. I get these random coughing fits that are so bad i am dry heaving. the Dr. tried to diagnose asthma, but came back negative. They havent really looked into it much more. I randomly get extremely dizzy and lightheaded, i feel completely weak. It is the worst feeling in the world. some nights my "RLS" seems to spread to my arms...they will cramp up just like my legs do. My feet also randomly burn and are hot to the touch. It is not an itchy burn, more like a pins and needes type burn, very painful at times. I am on mirapex and Zoloft for RLS. (My sleep study came back saying I have clinical depression...how is this possible?) I do have mood swings, but am not at all depressed and do not feel like I need to be on anti-depressants. Please help. I am in the military and the military Drs have not done much to help me. I am tired of appt after appt, and would love to be able to solve the mystery without having to wait on them!!!
