I have been having problems for a few years, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism some six months ago and have been on Levothyroxine since then. My (what I suspect is RLS) started a few years before that but the symptoms are not like the ones I have read about so I am not sure if I have it or not
with me I am fine all day until its time to sleep or lie on the sofa, If I have been lying down for about ten mins I get a sensation that starts in the calf muscle and spreads out fairly rapidly, its not an unpleasant sensation, Its like being on an muscle toner which is set to max. The next thing my whole leg will kick or twitch and although it used to be a mild twitch it is now powerful enough to make my whole body move. walking about does not stop it in fact nothing I have tried so far has stopped it. It just goes on randomly through the night sometimes its bad other its not but it happens at some point every night.
My GP wants me to wait until I am on my correct dose of Levo before looking into it further but when I started reading about RLS i thought maybe have something else, all my movements when I have an attack are involuntary but when reading about it it says people relieve the feelings by having to move legs or arms
any help would be appreciated
