Hi everyone I have not been confirmed as having RLS 1 doctor even said its not a real illness. My trouble always starts when I go to bed cant keep my feet or legs still and so not to keep my wife awake I go back down stairs where I will often punch my legs as hard as I can and still waking my wife as she can hear me from the bedroom I kick the sofa or lay on the floor and hit my ankle bone on the wooden floor, kick the wall I have poured boiling water on my legs and ice cold water, I try walking in and out of the kitchen and living room this can go on for 3 or 4 nights in a row with no sleep at all I'm so desperate to sleep I end up crying then having several large glasses of scotch to try and sleep. I have also just seen this on TV and I am suffering from short term memory loss I was even tested for Alzheimer's that is also driving me nuts so what do you all think am I nuts !!!!!!!!
