Restless Leg Syndrome

Anyone else have this? It's so annoying. I also get it in my arms from time to time but mostly my legs. Sometimes I have to get out of bed and get in a hot bath just to be able to calm my limbs enough to sleep.

That sounds horrible! What else happens? I have never experienced this.

I have a mild form of this but nowhere near not allowing me to fall asleep. I've never really looked into it but I know that for me, it happens mostly when I'm feeling anxious or bored. Maybe it's something else entirely...It just hasn't bothered me to the point of actually looking up the details.

You should consult your doctor if it's disrupting your sleep. Have you tried yoga stretches before bedtime to help calm your nervous system? It could be of help. Kefir is also great for the nervous system.

Here is what happens. And true to textbook studies I have moderate to severe sleep apnea (untreated bc I CANNOT use the mask no matter what I try) and I am deficient in vitamins. Mine so horrible. It takes forever to get rid of it but sometimes a hot bath helps. I've had it since I was a kid.

I do not, but both my grandmother and mother have suffered with severe cases of it for years..

I have a couple of clients with RLS who have been helped by medication. Have you spoken to your doctor?

Yes I told my Dr I have it but he didn't recommend any medication or anything. It's so bad that I cannot stand having my legs cramped up when flying so I try to make sure I have a few stops on a long flight or get up and walk. And any meds that make me drowsy like allergy meds or gravol make it so much worse! It's such an awful feeling when you just can't stop the feeling and have to move around. It's almost comical the way o twist myself around like a pretzel trying to get rid of it lol
