ok, so dont know if this will help anyone else, but here goes. if anyone else twitches at night - i mean legs, etc, - what i call "dancing" .. last night i had a terrible night of "dancing". i tried my usual trick of taking an anti spasmodic usually only for ibs ... but that didnt work ... i did hear that when that happens, its the muscles wanting water - but i had drunk four pints of water so knew it couldnt be that either ... then in the early hours i remembered a doctor saying that the twitches i had which started again could be due to the heat (she told me this last year), so i used my cool gel pillow my sister got for me last year, used it, and hey presto - no more "dancing" and i could try get some rest!!!

I am glad you found relief. My hubby would ask...where are we walking to tonight. I would move my legs as though I was walking or pedalling a bike while lying down, LOL
