I have had "happy feet " as a young adult years before RLS was even recognized. I remember the first time I met someone who also had "happy feet".It was enlightening to say the least. This sensation moved to my knees-thighs and then to "happy hips' Always worse at night.

As of late as I lay down on some nites I find my whole body restless and I toss back and forth quickly-at times feeling ready to "explode". About a year ago I started having these "vibrations" in my chest-I mentioned it to my MD and got no response. Now I am experiencing restlessness in my chest which I think resembles RLS!!

I am sooo happy to find this site and know I am not going crazy. I was afraid to even tell my MD because I thought I would be labeled "anxiety" or worse. Thank you.

You are not going crazy but likely to be labeled so by your doctor. After about 30 something years of RLS in my legs I ended up with it spreading to my arms and body - I didn't think such a thing possible, unfortunately it is and there are plenty of us here suffering the same way.

Has there been any change in drugs you are taking - a lot of them can cause the RLS to increase drastically? Antidepressants and antihistamines can all cause desperate increases in RLS


are you takin PremPexola medicine, i suffer severe RLS, and cannot go without this medicine, it is a life saving reprieve for me, recently pt back onto statins and find my rls worse
