I have had restless leg syndrome (RLS) from an early age, but it has gone away for several years at a time. In the last 10 years, it has become progressively worse. I have tried all the medicines used to treat RLS; would be effective for several months then stop. Four months ago I began having symptoms 24 hours unless on my feet. RLS Foundation lists neurologists who treat RLS in your state.

I had a very painful hysteroscopy procedure even though the doctor said I would be all mellowed out from medicines. I took Motrin and 1 mg Ativan the night before and also put 3 pills up the vaginal area to open cervix. About 30 minutes before the procedure I took another Ativan and Dilaudid for pain. I had 3 painful episodes that were just awful. As I had endometrial biopsy twice before for thickened uterus I did expect some pain. I was diagnosed with a polyp; have generalized anxiety condition and mitral valve. I was ok after procedure and bled only slightly, but 2 days later I am suffering with migraine and toothache that finally went away with Aleve. Now I have nausea and flu like symptoms. As a post-menopausal woman over 75 I wonder if I should be on some kind of antibiotics. I just hope I feel better tomorrow; I am taking Pepcid, etc.
