    Wierd side effects to medication
    Char0760 posted:
    I am 34 yrs and I have been diagnosed with RA and Fibro since 2003. I had a baby last year and since I've had him, I have had wierd side effects to phenergan and remeron. I get this awful feeling in both my legs, it's not really a pain issue, to be honest, I don't really know how to describe it? My legs just feel achy and I can't get comfortable, like someone hit me in the funny bone but, instead of my arms, my legs get that sensation. Does anyone know what this could be? I would appreciate any input!

    Dear Char0760,

    Hello and thanks for posting! I'd suggest following up with your doctor on this problem. He or she can check your legs out and decide if any further tests are necessary to pinpoint the issue.

    Since you describe it as "awful" and "can't get comfortable," it really sounds like you should have it addressed so you can start feeling better.

    Congratulations on your little guy!

    Keep us posted on how you're doing,
