    I don't know how long I've suffered from RLS, but I can remember as a child my mom, then my dad after mom died, rubbing my legs at night. I could not sit for long car rides, and to sit in church for an hour was a painful event. I didn't know why I had this restless feeling, and...

    Twitching Like An Epileptic

    RLS has to be one of the most annoying afflictions known to man. All you want to do is sleep and your body just won't let you. You try and fight the feeling to move your leg, but you cant. It must be a cousin to tourettes syndrome. It doesnt happen all the time, just certain meds...

    A Mind of Their Own

    Once in a while I'll get RLS and it really ******' annoying! It's like my legs did a bunch of speed and didn't share with the rest of me. My legs take on a mind of their own and refuse to listen to reason. Nothing will stop them until its run it's course.

    Yes, Sometimes I Do

    I inherited this disorder from my Mom's side of the family, and I rarely am troubled by it, thank God, but when I am, only medicine will quiet it down. My Mom has this problem FAR worse than I do, so I can't help but pity her, that way. My Dad didn't have any problems like this...

    I had restless leg syndrome back in the mid-80's when I was about 45. I had never heard of it...and even my doctor, the head neurologist at a large hospital, had no idea what it was. It simply was not something that was fully understood back then. My doctor gave me only...
