Re: My husband (or wife or family) finally GETS IT!

Just thought I'd start a new thread. You can insert whatever you want to in the heading. But, I want to tell you all about my husband.

New member in Ireland....

Hi guys, what is the story? how are things? i have had RLS since i was a kid. My mother always said it was cramps and use to get me to tense and straighten my legs-as you all know if you give in to the movements it makes it more severe.
