I just started taking the pill for the first time in my life (I'm 35) and I have developed HORRIBLE RLS. The doctors say that this is not a known side-effect, but after reading the article in the above link, I think that is my problem. I have gone 4 straight nights now, watching the sun rise and I am miserable. I went to my primary care doctor today and they were a lot more understanding. The agreed, that the only thing that has changed is introduction of estrogen into my body. I just had a huge uterine fibroid removed and my OB put me on the pill to prevent scarring. I have a message into her that I have stopped taking it and she needs to call me ASAP. I feel like I am losing my mind from lack of sleep!
