I've just been doing some googling as my sleep is a nightmare again at the moment and I am not sure whether what I am experiencing relates to this condition or whether I am just fidgety in general. Have had this on and off for years and seems particularly bad at the mo. I don't get any pain but I get a weird sensation (can't describe it well sorry) in my arms and legs that mean I 'have' to move and stretch a lot and can't get comfortable. Happen a lot when trying to get to sleep (however tired I am) and if sitting in the same seat for long periods of time. I've recently had a depression & anxiety breakdown and am on venefalaxin, Lithium and quetiapine.......the sensation is not worse on these (although pretty frequent at the moment) but I guess because of where I am in my head at the moment I am worrying because I am desperate for a decent sleep. Before I see my consultant again I thought I'd ask the opinions of sufferers to see if this might be related to RLS? Any advice much appreciated
