Hi. I used to be on this site a lot but sort of resigned myself to the torture of RLS and stopped discussing it with others. I do miss the advice and help this site offers so hopefully you will welcome me back after deserting you so long ago!!
Just wondered if others found that exercise makes there RLS a lot worse. For my sins I took up golf two years ago which I really enjoy. However, after walking a course for 18 holes which is about 4 to 5 miles (especially the way I play!!) my RLS goes into overdrive and I have a really bad night. Doesn't matter what meds I take, it just gives my entire body hell and the next day is a write off as I am zombied!!
Also I cannot call nap hiring the day because as soon as I lie down, on it comes and I convulse so badly I have to give up and carry on regardless.
Can anybody concur with these things.
Best wishes to everyone on here, I wish one day, relief for everybody and awareness and understanding from others and especially doctors about this horrible condition.
