Been incapacitated since xmas 2010, unable to work, life has been destroyed. Crawled away from abusive relationship, lost everything. Social Security is fighting me, it's disgusting. Doctors are wretched and worthless.

nadia on Aug, 19, 2014:
I was on topiramate for a month and half, and had horrible restless legs... and the idea of stabbing my legs with a knife seemed like a happier alternative. I would sit and cry in some anxiety state, because the need to move was overwhelming. It was horrible. But there is hope... I stopped the toperimate... stopped it... completely, cold turkey(remember I was only on it a month and half, 25 mg three times a day)... and in a week the restless craziness stopped. It's very rare... but shit is my luck, because i'm one of the 0.12% I guess. My doc put me on it, to give me a boost in weight loss... but nothing is worth the restless legs shit.

I unfortunately fit this profile to a t. Female, age 47, on topamax for 2 years for migraines, take cymbalta and now horrendous restless leg syndrome. It is maddening. I have been taking valium, which does seem to help somewhat. I stopped the topamax about a month ago, but the rls continues...any thoughts or suggestions?
