    Im off the co-codamols about 7 days now, but its not the restless legs at the moment annoying me, its the constant diarrhoea.  Please tell me this will pass.  Really hope you can get some relief from your restless legs.  I dont mean to be ignorant, but would the restless legs have anything to do with your pregnancy and not the codiene withdrawal?
