Hi Everyone. I was just about to start this sentence with, 'OMG .... you won't believe what happened to me tonight'. And then I realised who I was talking to. Of course you'll believe it, half of you go thru it, or have been thru it in the past.
I don't just have Restless Legs Syndrome, I have Restless ' all over body' Syndrome. But I have not suffered from it all over my body for probably over 12 years. Until last night, and I have absolutely no idea why.
It began after dinner, (with me of course not realising what was happening at first).
It began around the back of my neck, and across my shoulder blades. So of course I scratched. I was still quiet oblivious of what was happening. And then it worked it's way down to my waist.
My neck, my shoulder blades, my entire back, and both the left and right side of my trunk were affected. I scratched so hard I was bleeding. It looked like I was covered in welts.
By the time it got to my butt, I was thinking how on earth am I going to sleep. When my thighs began to become affected, a full hour had passed and I began to realise that it had disappeared from the top half of my body. Over an hour of extreme scratching have passed. The itch was insatiable.
It never got passed by thighs and it just stopped. Why did this happen?
The only thing different about tonight was that I had corn on the cob with dinner. I have eaten corn on the cob my entire life, and never had any effect. Why tonight?
Is this not the most puzzling disease in the world? There is no rhyme nor reason for it.
I tell you what tho .... when the itch had gone, the peace was unbelievable.
