Twitching And Itching
Posted 20 November 2007 - 05:33 AM
My legs are what bothers me the most at night. It is so aggravating. Just as I think I'm on my way to sleep, my legs go twitching. This feels different than what I've experienced before with restless legs. In the past it has felt like my leg muscles wanted to move but moving them didn't make them happy. This twitching thing is just as aggravating but different. It's like they can't relax.
Someone here had a simple "cure" for restless legs but I don't remember what it was. I'll go try a search.

I have mild RLS, too. Usually just getting up out of bed helps. I still have the RLS, but am able to live with it as long as I'm not trying to sleep. Just one more problem to add to the SD mix.

I am sorry that you are dealing with this leg restlesness. I have heard from one of my doctors that leg restlessness is a side effect of anemia. But that is not the only reason. Did you say that you talked to your doctor about this? If not, you could always give the nurse there a call to see what she thinks.
Take care my dear.

I hope you find something to make the crazy leg spiders go away.

Sorry about those never ending restless legs acting up. I was diagnosed a few months back with this after many sleepless nights. I would try the soap but if nothing helps, I was prescribed some relief by my doctor. It really worked and when they act up it is sooo nice to have help. Also heat on them might help.
My mother has restless leg frequently and says when they are their worst , she gets in bathtub of warm water and this helps more than anything. Hope you get relief. Susie54

I just don't want to add another med since it's not something that bothers me all the time - just occasionally.
I am going to try the soap and thanks for the warm bath idea Susie. Don't know why I didn't think of that.
