I am 67 and retired. A few weeks ago I noticed my legs flicking up when I tried to sleep. After a few days, and with increasing tiredness, I visited my doc. To cut a longish story short I had various blood tests and he concluded I had primary RLS with periodic limb movement--all totally out of the blue and idiopathic! I was on 2mg of clonazepam but have now cut back on this and now have pramipexole. After a lot of reading around I now realise that I have joined quite a big community!!!!
