My old mate Restless.

Yesterday 3.00pm guess what after lunch I fancied a quick nod in my chair and my old mate decided i wasn't going to get one, Restless legs were there. So no forty winks for me. He must love me because he stayed with me till 09.30 that evening. Feeling very tired decided it was time for bed, oh no just as I was falling off to sleep he came to visit me AGAIN, he was setting a piece of me all right. So here I am at 03.00 in the morning he's with me wish he would go see someone else but that is selfish SORRY. But this time I'm 2 glasses of Jack Daniels Tennessee up on him and feeling two sheets to the wind.....good luck everyone I'm now going to try for bed, Night night Restless I hope.

Problem is that he just loves old Jack. They're great buddies.

Hope you get a bit of shuteye eventually.

Sadly Blokie, the whisky is indeed best mates with the jumpy legs. Tempting as it is, I know any alcohol means no sleep. Ah well...

Blokie, I know how you feel...sometimes after particularly tiring night, I really need a nap, and often the ole RLS will stop me....however, strangely if I have been forced to leave my bed at 5 or 6am, after a cup of coffee and the loo, I can sometimes snooze/rest for a while. I do find that people are strongly critical of late risers....they should try no sleeping...!!!?

Hi Blokie , most of us suffers find they can't drink spirits but they don't seem to affect me ,you might be like that to , anything to get some shuteye is worth a go ,,hope your visitor goes to find one of our lovely disbelievers who thinks we are just seeking attention ,wouldn't that be good especially some of these Dr who look at you as if your imagining things ,think of the look on their face if you where sitting in their surgery explaining the terrible symptoms you are getting and the disbelieving look on their face thinking oh no not another crackpot, when all of a sudden they start twitching and jumping about with that look of what the h--- is going on here ,and you just smile back and say well mate. ,,, and who's going to believe you 😃

Hi Mopsy, after taking a couple of sips of JD's I had at least 3 hours sleep with no RLS. Just goes to show.
