Achy and heavy legs

For the past few months I've been experiencing aches and heaviness in my legs. These usually happens in the evening or while I'm sleeping. But I once move around it goes away. I've had RLS for the past 8-10 years and I don't take anything for it. Please help. Waterlily2120

Hello.

Since you have RLS since a long time, do you feel your current symptoms are new to you? Some people do complain of these additional problems when they have RLS. There are a few good medicines available for RLS. I would suggest you consider treatment for your RLS.

I take a cocktail of anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications. Does anyone know of any medications that have a side effect of restless leg syndrome?

Hello.

Recent research and review has suggested that anti-depressants can, in fact, cause restless legs syndrome as well as increase it if already existing.
