y restless leg syndrome has no mercy. It attacks me any time of the day or night. It is also in my upper limbs. Drs say it is the worst case they have seen. Nothing seems to help. I am on 4mg of requip twice a day and vicodin as needed.Vicodin used to be the most effective but it no longer working.
