For a couple years now I have ignored periodic episodes where I will rise from a sitting position, walk about 25 steps and get an odd overwhelming feeling/pain throughout my legs, feeling like I am about to drop- that they can't hold me up. I have also been noticing a fraction of this feeling in my legs occur often. I went to the Dr. and he said he thinks I might be having leg siezures as a rare side effect to Wellbutrin. In my research of Wellbutrin they never mention specifically "Leg" siezures although they do mention siezures in 1/1000 of people taking large amounts daily. I am not- 150 mg. A blood test in April showed a high level of hemoglobin and blood sugar in which he told me to keep my calories at 1200 a day. I weigh 140 at 5"7 so he felt I was not a candidate for diabetes but to be careful. I have also had a lot of fatigue but are on Thyroid meds and take them regularly. The diagnosis of Leg Siezures just doesn't feel correct. Any ideas or advice? Thanks!
