Hi. I am 37, fitness instructor and a happy married man with a great lifestyle.
But my worse ennemi for the past 6 years is restless legs syndrome. It has become so much worse in the past year that I am now writing at 2:44am to make me feel better that someone out there care about this disturbing and life changing condition. I know it could be worse but it’s my life and my story right now and it’s not nice.
I now sleep alone as my partner doesn’t want to share the same bed due to my frolic movements that don’t seam to stop. Heat is making it worse. Even my arms are affected. My mood has changed to the level that I now am very angry each day and shout at people as I am so tired from lack of sleep. I try to nap the day time if I can to refresh me. My work is affected too.
I have tried cold ice, massaging, electrical massage machine, Chiropractor, marching, drinking plenty of fluid, extra iron each day and extra potassium. I do a lot of exercises.
My doctors won’t do anything about it or give me anything.
I am on the edge of exploding and I am lost for solutions and worried to harm myself as I have even hit my legs so hard before to get another pain to forget the discomfort of the RLS.
Thank you for being there whoever you are.
