Weak Legs, Etc.
Hello, you are probably suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Caused by a number of things but possibly a light stroke, smoking, diabetes or damage to the nerves in the legs.
I am no doctor, and certainly don't claim to be one but I am 82 yrs. Old with a great deal of experience in many things in life and have learned much. Only a real !**@! can live that long and not retain a vast knowledge of many things, including medicine.
Besides, I have a severe case of restless legs syndrome and have taken every kind of medication available for this disease, and am now on requip (3 mg. Daily) which I wonder if it is doing anything for me, except depleating my bank real fast. I also have had a light stroke and have peripheral neuropothy which causes very tired legs and instability in walking. Can anyone give me suggestions about rls? Les

You have nothing to lose by trying this suggestion. Put a fresh bar of soap at the foot of your bed. Under the sheet so it stays put. Several people I know have had some success with this.

for rls the doc gave my husband something, Im sorry dont remember the name of it, but it was usually prescribed for seizures, and it helped him to overcome it completely. He no longer takes it or has rls.
