I have suffered with restless leg syndrome for about 20 years and 9 months ago was prescribed patches that miraculously cured the problem, recently,however, I have been suffering from similar symptoms whereby I have a sort of numbness in my toes and fuzzy feelings in my legs resulting in nights where I get no sleep at all. This does not happen every night, usually two or three nights a week. I am waiting to have surgery for a prolapse uterus, but it was discovered that I had a TSH of 48 and the surgery had to be cancelled. I did not know that I had a thyroid problem prior to the blood tests taken in preparation for surgery. My TSH level is now back to normal. I am wondering if anyone else, with same or similar medical history has this problem with their legs and feet. I get very anxious and panicky about it as nobody seems to understand how debilitating it is! Any tips please?
