Re: long time sufferer, recently diagnosed

After recently being diagnosed with RLS I have realized I have had this disorder all my life, since I was a child. I have always had restless nights and felt the need to shake my leg. I even notice my brothers do the same thing. The problem is, as I have gotten older the symptoms have gotten worse,...

Re: RLS

I have had RLS since 1990. I remember having trouble getting to sleep ,on occasion, so I got into the habit of taking aspirin. Aspirin seemed to help. Today my RLS is an everyday occurrence and at times, if I am sitting too long in one position, it can drive me crazy. I am taking a drug called Sina...
