i have SEVERE arm (arm pain is from the elbow to the hand-- topside) and leg pain (leg pain is in lower leg only--knee to ankle--shin). it occurs about 1 1/2 hours after i go to bed. it is only at night. i have spoken with many drs and they all say it is restless leg syndrome. if i stand up the arm and leg pain is completely gone. if i hang my arms or legs over the bed and let them dangle the pain is gone.
the pain i experience is INTOLLERABLE. i am on a strong painkiller (narcotic) and know i can't be on that forever. i am kind of stuck. can you direct me somewhere???? do you know of anything that these symptoms fit?
