  1. Thanks for replying Jungledog, I still have pain but I beleive I can manage it without prescription pills, as I'm writing this its 3 am & I haven't been able to sleep a wink, have horrible restless legs & am so tired I want to cry, I'm so glad there's no pills in my house coz I know I would've taken one.....long term I haven't figured out what I'll do yet my heads to fuzzy to even think!! How long did the RLS last for you?? I'm hoping tonight is the last of it or I feel ill go mad ;)

    Check and see if there is an antihistamine in the cough medicine. Avoid all antihistamines as these make the RLS worse. The worst of it for me was over in 10 days but honestly I felt like complete shit for 30 days and sleep took longer. I know this is not what you want to hear but it does get better and you can do this. Just take it one day at a time.
