For the last couple of weeks I have suffered from my legs jerking in bed and i then wake up with painful legs. i have seem my doc and he has suggested that this might be caused by gabapentin. I have been taking just 300mg for about a year. The doc has suggested that I reduce the gabapentin which we agree probably does not help the problem it was prescribed for. I am suspicious that for some unknown reason I have suddenly developed RLS and periodic limb movement. Has anyone got a view on the gabapentin possibility? I will see the doc again in a couple of weeks to see whether the symptoms have changed after thye gabapentin reduction. My puzzle in part is that for some people with RLS gabapentin is prescribed
