How many of RLS sufferers have tingling and heaviness in their legs (or one more than the other ) during the day?
I'm very restless at night and my legs drive me nuts,one more than the other but I don't have the urge to walk around the room.
If I don't have Gabapentin at night I can fall asleep but it's only hourly as I wake up very agitated and extremely restless. it is effective but I can't just pinpoint it to my legs that wake me up. it is a very fidgety leg action, heaviness and tingling sometimes very painful and it is torment.
Not here to preach to the preached, I know not all suffer exact same symptoms but heat does make my legs swell. I can't stay in the sun and sunbathe for example.
I'm also hypothyroidism so a few things going on, I've joined the group on here for that too). I've booked a Dr appointment but never been tested for neuropathy as the doc put me on Gabapentin to see if it worked for sleeping. which it has.
Any ideas what facts I could bring to the table when I visit the Dr.? a full blood count but surely there's specifics I can ask for rent magnesium etc?
Sorry for the very long post!
Thanks in advance and hope you're all having a fab day😊
