Hi, There are so many comments and different symptoms for rls, my heart goes out to everyone who gets it, there have been times when i have wanted to cry because it just would'nt go away, i have done circles around the coffee table in my lounge, paced up and down the gang way on a long haul flight, and god knows what else, all i want to do sometimes is tie my legs in a knot to try and get some relief, as i said in my last post i take quinine bisulphate prescribed by my GP these seem to work for me, although sometimes they take a while to work, i have been told they are for cramp which is the one thing i dont really suffer with. i just wish that someone out there would invent a pill that would make it go away for good. my mum suffered with rls later in her life and she was prescribed quinine and she had had 3 heart attacks and 4 strokes previously to being prescribed for these pills, so if they can affect your heart why did they still give them to her? she passed away nearly two years ago but it wasn't from heart problems
