Biggest fear

Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

I walked today, about 3/4 mile.
That's great!

My leg was so bad last night. I know it's because I am now more active. What a pain, literally.

You are a bit between a rock and a hard place. You need to exercise but it affects your pain.
Would you consider backing off on the exercise and see if your pain eases. If it does then restart your exercise a little more gently and increase ever so gradually.

I don't know. All that I have ever noticed is I either sit in my chair and do nothing or I am active. The exercise is consisting of slowly walking about 1/4 mile or so. I went too far yesterday. I ride my bike for two 15 min sessions. For me, if I just sit in a regular chair with my feet down, that will increase the leg spasms. It seems to be all or nothing. It isn't far.

The move went well. I'm getting settled. This is going to be so much better for me.
