    Hi there Margaret, My wife & I have just recently moved to Leeds & I have OA with what I can only describe as a feeling as though there's something crawling up my arms,Legs and spine, which is sometimes I'm told similar to Restless legs syndrome and is a side effect of OA. I have many sleepless nights pacing and rocking about then take an extra dose of Painkiller wait about 20 mins & then I tend to flake out completely exhausted. It's a nightmare that Dr's are trying to combat by uping my dose of Gabapentin but as yet it's not working. Keep going back until they find a satisfactory answer

      Hi Stephen , thank you for your reply sorry to be a bit thick but what is OA please, i had to see my doctor for a check up and she said i had acute urticaria, i have been on tablets for 2 days and have noticed the odd feeling is not quite as severe, now i dont know if it is connected to urticaria, but i am keeping a diary so next time i see her i can let her know whats happened, i did see a different doctor this time , as when i saw the other doctor i must have told her 5 times about it she just said we will see how things are next time,

      well this is what i was to understand ericaria is(but i am sure somebody will correct me if i am wrong)

      i get a rash sometimes it is a raised blob, or looks like weals, and its because i have high levels of histamine caused by either food or medication that reacts with my body. Many moons ago my whole body was covered like this , and after tests it was found i was elergic to asprin, so i cannot have that now, i was really.

      the doctor asked me to keep a food diary so when i see her next we can discuss it, hope this helps Pauline. hope you are well
