Get a prescription for pramipexole. I had "restless leg" symtoms, which is more than likely what you have. Worked almost immediately, now I won't be without it. The night leg problems are gone forever. Hope this helps.
I have severe leg cramps at night sometimes...radiating from my foot up to my calf.When this happens, my husband gets me a drink of Quinine water on ice...I stretch the leg a little to get the circulation going, and then warm up my feet.Works every time. Quinine water is used for Nighttime Leg Cramps.Look it up. Westie J.
