Restless Leg Syndrome
Does anyone here have it?
I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. I've been thinking I have this for a long time now, but mostly it's very mild so haven't worried about it. But I had a horrible attack of it last night.
I get it in my arms more so than my legs though? Last night I woke up at about 1.30am and had it horribly in my arms. Normally it takes about 10/15 minutes to pass when I keep them moving, but it just wouldn't go away. It was horrible, I ended up crying because I was so frustrated, my body is so tired, but I just can't keep my arms still, but no amount of moving was helping the sensation. It woke Mark up and he was kinda freaked to find me shaking my arms around and crying... lol. He got me to take 2 nurofen and tried to get meto relax. It lessened a bit, but I only got to sleep about 20 minutes later. So it was about 45/50 minutes overall. My arms are aching today because of how hard I was moving them trying to get rid of it last night. I also have it a little bit at work today, but nowhere near as bad as I did last night.
I've only had it as bad once before, when I had drank a red bull a fewhours before bed. Again it took me at least an hour to get rid of the sensation, I was crying, and on that night I think I woke up a few times with it and even got up out of bed and walked around to try and releive it.
Argh! It's just the most frustrating thing, because my body and mind are so tired and still sleepy, but I just can't get rid of the compulsion.
Any one else suffer this?
