Is this restless leg syndrome?

I have constant pain in both my legs. It sometimes feels like I have to stretch them, but it's mostly pain. It's totally debilitated me. The only time I'm OK is when I'm sleeping. I don't have any leg movements at night. I also have fibromyalgia, degenerative spine disease, sleep apnea, interstitial cystitls. I've tried neurontin and ultram to no avail. Could this be something else?

Hi there!

Uneasiness with an urge to move the legs does not always mean restless leg syndromes. This could be indicative of vascular issues, peripheral neuropathy, musculopathies, hormonal/ endocrine issues etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management if required.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
