Thank you! Even though I've been intermittently bothered by RLS since I was a teen, I was always confused by its description as a sleep disorder. Mine would typically come on in the evening when I was sitting and getting sleepy and be relieved by going to bed. During the last year, some 60 years after onset, it has spread to my arms and persisted during sleep. I had a BAD time with it last night, which led me to find your community. It was reassuring to see my symptoms reported, and you all have my thanks and empathy.
