I've been reading everyone's posts..and am amazed to find so many suffering abs in multiple body areas.
I an 46.and for as long as I can remember I have had RLS. As a child I was given a different reason for why I felt this way. Caffeine..too much/ little exercise..sugar intake..and so on. Nearly every woman in my family suffered with bouts of it..yet had no name for it. Just called it"The Jimmy Leg".. I only suffered occasionally as a child. At around 30 the frequency and intensify increased to almost nightly. Now at 46 I can expert it nightly. And my arms have joined the party. I think some nights in going to lose my mind. I was officially diagnosed in my 20s. Found medication ineffective. And I still stick to grannys advice..a few mins in a nice hot bath. Gives me the relief I need to get much needed rest. If I can't soak..sometimes a hot blanket from the dryer works.. I have found what seems to always set it off is a cool breeze..air conditioning..ceiling fan..and I do my best do avoid direct cool air on my legs. They say massage works. But all it does is set mine off. I have been a massage therapist 13yrs. And hate that out doesn't work for my situation. I'm doing my best to stay off the drug therapies. My bath is still working after all these years. Sending healing energies to all who suffer with this.
