Hello, I found this website purely by accident after yet another late night frantic Google search on cures for restless legs!! I first started getting this when I was about 20, I'm now 33! The advice I got from the Dr was to not wear heels and don't drink, and it was an illness older people got so I couldn't have any medication for it! Great! So I've just struggled for the last 10 years although it's now got to the point where it's absolutely driving me insane!!!! It's not just at night either, I'm starting to get pains in my legs in the day. I put it down to standing up all day at work, but nothing is working, is it even a point going to see my Dr about this? I'm basically getting a few hours sleep a night, at the moment it's 1am I have work in 7 hours and have made a sort of sling for 1 leg so it can hang out the bed, and had to bend my other leg to get some kind of relief, and now I'm waffling because I'm so tired and have no one else to talk to about it (obviously my husband is snoring his head off) so yea, any point in seeing the gp? Any advice would be great!! Thanks.
