Could Restless Leg Syndrome Really be CIDP?

I was given Pramipexole .5 mg. at bedtime for what was considered Restless Leg Syndrome about four years ago. It felt like ants were crawling around in my legs.I had to move them or go crazy. My metabolic specialist internist treated my Lyme disease right after that. The" RLS" went away.

Now, that you have educated me about the connection between CIDP and Lyme, I realize that it probably wasn't RLS, but Lyme, and early onset of CIDP.

Do any of you take Pramipexole for CIDP? Is that over kill to be taking such a strong drug? It's the only thing that will calm down my legs to get to sleep.

Thank you.
