Can someone tell me exactly what RLS is? I have never been diagnosed with it, but I obviously have something weird going on. For years now, when I'm trying to get to sleep, my legs will feel like they want to run around the block and it's a horrible feeling. Please direct me to some info on the subject. I'd really appreciate it. Also, is pain associated with it? I actually have pain sometimes. I don't have this every night. When I have "attacks," the only thing that seems to help is if I get out of bed and run in place vigorously for 10 minutes. Another "twitching" symptom I seem to have is when I'm lying perfectly still and almost falling off to sleep, my entire body will suddenly jump. I've woken my husband up many times and he won't even sleep in the same bed with me anymore.
