    Found Out I Have Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

    This is where the legs become irritant even when layer down. They become itchy and can have the impression of something crawling on them. It is horrible and stops me from going to sleep straight away. Eventually when I do get to sleep I have been told I fling my arms everywhere...

    Sometimes, I just can't sleep.

    Finally...I'm Not Crazy!!

    I have been plagued with this sleep 'disturbance' ever since I was a child. I used to ask a lot of people if they ever had this happen to them...and had never had one person ever say they had. I started, over the years, to question myself. Was I crazy? Was this some sort of deep...
