Hi. This is really interesting. I haven't got things half as bad as a lot of people and I thank my luckily stars. Last night it started again (so I haven't really slept much. I did take codeine and paracetamol and that helped) but one thing I would like to know is that I know this site reaches all over but how do you know what country people are from as different countries have different ways of prescribing. I have mentioned this RLS to my doctor (UK) and haven't got very far but haven't pushed it as it isn't half as bad as it could be. I often feel like it has something to do,with my breath and because I can't explain it properly I feel like an idiot. I'm not afraid of my GP but it is the explanation that I find difficult. My legs don't twitch or lash out. I just feel like my blood in my legs Is getting heavy and my breath goes with it, so I hold my breath and count slowly to ten. Even that doesn't explain it and and I wonder if anyone started like this or am I daft and making a mountain out of a molehill. It is uncomfortable and sometimes I just have to stand up and walk around especially at night. I know everything is worse at night and it does happen in the car, watching TV. Never whilst exercising. I really do understand that people are really desperate with this and may be thinking what's she on about but I wonder how it starts with a lot of people. Thanks for listening and hope you all find some peace with it in the new year.
