I really can't cope anymore with these bloody legs.
I was sort of settled with the pain after taking all my night meds... then I get into bed and wham!!
The bloody legs start twitching..
so I've gotten up.. no point in staying in bed.

I know how you feel. Once i get in bed my knees seem to start kicking off, the pain becomes unbearable that i end up gettin out of bed an going downstairs , then am up for the rest of the night. I usually rub tiger balm on them , and it seems to work. Hope you start to feel better soon x

I have had RLS for years and now it has progressed to my stomach and arms. I find it helps if I change my position e.g. sitting at my desk with the laptop and doing anything to take my mind off it. I also have diazepam which sometimes helps, sometimes not.

I have a really good GP, he prescribes me Temazepam at night so I can get a good nights sleep!

Lyrica has really helped me. I had a restless body, not just my legs. The difference was amazing. Speak to your GP xx

I used to suffer terribly with restless legs and arms. Saw a feature on Facebook about halcyon bracelets. Thought I didn't have anything to lose. Cost me £20. Best thing ever. Worked every night I remember to put them on, if I do forget then put them on the pain and discomfort goes within 30 mins. I don't take medication anymore for this problem. Hope this helps
