Re: New Uer - RLS Since Young Age

I'm glad the medication is working for you rustsmith, that sounds like hell. If my issues are migraine related I have been lucky that they are silent.

Re: New Uer - RLS Since Young Age

I am afraid to take medication because of the side effects but also because I have heard of rls worsening. Because I am still relatively young it would be rather unfortunate if my rls gets permanently worse. I'm hoping I can use "home remedies" to help reduce the severity of my symptoms un...

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am 24 years old. I remember the moment when I first had symptoms of rls. I don't remember my exact age but around 14 years ago my left leg fell asleep as it sometimes does if its in an odd position.
