I am for the most part a glass half full person, but I struggle to stay positive in the face if rls. I had it as a child only it wasn't recognized back then. My Grandmother used to rub my legs every night to help me go to sleep, God bless her. It went away and didn't reappear until I was in my forties, about twenty years ago. I'm 69 now and as I get older, it gets worse. I try everything reasonable that I hear about and some things that make no sense . A Doctor told me sleeping with a bar of soap would keep it at bay, he swore to this. It didn't. Most meds I try work for awhile, I always know it's a short term solution I guess the point to my whine is that I deal with this every day as do many others and I am feeling rather hopeless at the moment. Any ideas?
