I have been diagnosed with RLS and for years have suffered until my sister told me I needed to wear compression socks because my ankles stay swollen. I bought Mueller toe out compression socks, wear them at night and when I am at home, swelling is down(almost gone) and pain is gone. I still take Requip also just to be on the safe side but the socks convinced me my pain in legs came from the swollen ankles. My sister taught me a valuable lesson, don't treat the problem but find the cause. Now I am looking for reasons my ankles are swollen! I am looking at a medication I take.
