Does anyone else have Restless Leg Syndrome?

0

I know you really shouldn’t self-diagnose, but I’m pretty sure I suffer from this after researching the symptoms.

I’m not getting to sleep until about 4am because my legs are so uncomfortable and I feel like I have to keep moving them, but obviously if I’m moving my legs I’m not getting to sleep.

So I was wondering if anyone else has this problem, and what they do to manage? Thanks!

My family has a history of RLS, and we usually just drink a lot of water. That seems to do the trick sometimes. Other times, leg cramp pills or just plain ibuprofen can do the job if it is severe enough. If you're waiting for the pills to kick in, then you can massage your legs very well for temporary relief.

I actually have that as well and I sleep with one leg hanging off my bed and it constantly bounces,, I didn't even know I did it until my boyfriend kept getting annoyed that i was shaking the bed lmao But there are certain medications that you can take to reduce the symptoms of restless leg syndrome.

@limitless the white spots on your nails usually mean you have a lack of iron. Just eat lots of foods with iron and the go away

Yes I have this, I shake my foot through most of the day but at night time it can get get so bad that I have to get up and walk around. My leg feels very uncomfortable if I don't shake it and sometime it spreads through my whole leg. I also get a lump in my throat if I try to stop. My partner says my leg shakes sometimes in my sleep also. It seems to be worse in hot weather for me.It's a horrible thing to have as, as far as I'm aware there is no cure. Very frustrating

I give myself cold foot baths and take walks round the block in comfortable shoes. I drink lots of water and I don't wear socks in the house.

Yes, I do have that as well and I'm also suffering from sciatica so that just adds up to my misery. To overcome all this I'm having my treatment with the physiotherapist (drug less treatment) and it's helping me with the restlessness. He insist that I drink a lot of water, eat a lot of veggies and a little bit of exercise.

It literally feels like dull metal rods are being forced out of my bone all the way around my legs up to my knee some nights. It's horribly painful, but not quite pain (hard to explain); unless I move them. It is absolutely terrible. I like putting lotion on and then compression socks.

Water is always good. But don't forget to excercise your legs! Everyday either a walk, bike, or going to the gym, don't neglect your leg muscles.

My husband is on Madopar 125 Need a script for it though..Its been the only thing that helps him. I am not sure if its called that though where any one else lives,We are in Australia. Also in a health food stores,Magnesium calcium and vitimin b6 are also recommended,but for milder cases .No leaving legs out of the bed or rubbing nor anything else helped him.It surprising enough a very comment issue. Good luck!
