Something else--do your legs jerk for no reason at all? Even when the meds are working and the legs are ok they are known to just jerk. I've never thought much about it until my husband and I were discussing an upcoming surgery on my ankle and was wondering if my leg would jerk during the surgery. :confused
Yes, I really have RLS in my whole body and i will jerk all over sometime. My husband says I jerk in my sleep alot. I look like a puppet on a string when I get to jerking sometimes. My dad has RLS and a ton of my cousins and some other family members.
