I agree there needs to be more known about the sleeping part not just about how to stop the RLS symptoms, It happened to me again this evening (morning). I fell asleep around 2 am and woke just a bit ago (4:20 am) sitting on the couch. There was no way I would have attempted to go to bed just before falling asleep because my legs wanted to move and I woke up because of the same reason. The only thing I can do is bring my VPAP machine out here to the living room and wear the mask. I almost did it tonight but thought I would make it to bed.
As far as being able to work I think it has to do with the hyperarousal mostly, I feel like I need to do something. Around the house staying home the past month to get on and off the prescriptions I have had several projects, two of them are caulking all the ceiling cracks (done) and caulking all the kickboards at the tops between the kickboards and the walls.
