oh no wonder now then i know why i often wake up with heavy and aching legs... so it is part of RLS.

i thought the legs ache too much doing sports...

Yup I think i might ask for a letter soon. The doctor asked me too if i am working or not...right now no, anyway i ask for a letter soon.

Btw what do u mean by neurological condition?
does that mean the brain tells the legs to move thus we cannot control it?
