Restless Leg Syndrome

In an unrelated incident (I just felt like starting a sentence with that phrase), Ted, links to an article about the above, not at all, I am sure, intending for readers like me to read the link and go OH MY GOD, I HAVE THAT, I HAVE RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME! But I did, and I do.

My God, what have I done?

I definately suffer from it, particular during long, dull movies. But not limited to that. The real question is: Is it due to kidney failure, or an undiagnosed, long-term pregnancy?

Don't feel bad, Ted, you have simply provided me with a diagnosis for this mysterious condition that occasionally hits me when I lie down to go to bed, where my legs start to ache and I just can not get comfortable - unless I get up. (Until now, I've been calling it "That achey leg thing.") I also have it on the couch every once in a while watching movies, but not necessarily dull ones. Ken, I hope to god it's neither of the above, although the latter might explain the extra 20 pounds I've been carrying around for the last year or so.

I always thought it was a poltergeist in my leg.

One-third of all adult Americans--about 50 million people--complain about their sleep. Some sleep too little, some fitfully, and some too much. Although one-third of our lives is spent asleep, most of us don't know much about sleep, not even our own. We don't even know exactly why we sleep, other than--like an overnight battery recharge--sleep promotes daytime alertness. Sleep problems profoundly disturb both sleeping and waking life.

Thanks for those resources.

Please give these simple ideas a try before you resort to drugs. They worked for me, and they may work for you ... give them 30 days before you decide if they are working or not.
