I am almost 70 years old and have had RLS since my mid-40's. I suffered sleepless nights until ropinerol and mirapex came along. I used ropinerol for a number of years until it was no longer effective for me. My doctor switched me to Mirapex. I no longer have problems sleeping but my RLS seems to have evolved. Now I have painful contractions in my foot and knee in the evening when I sit down to watch TV? First it will be in one leg and then eventually it will move to the other. Once the medication kicks in it goes away. I don't have it every night, but it seems worse when I have been on my feet most of the day and worse in the foot I broke 3 times over the years. Does anyone else have these symptoms?
