Re: restless leg syndrome all over my body
Nope,. its not restless leg syndrome. If you had RLS, you would know exactly what it feels like, and believe it or not, its not what you describe (even in the legs).
What you are experiencing is muscle twitches and the lack of ability to relax and sleep. You need to try to do things at night to slow down your body and brain. IF you are big on using the computer at night, or read with a book reader (nook or Kindle) stop. Those things trigger chemicals in your brain which do not allow your body to relax...
Try incorporating exercise into your day, preferably before noon. Stay hydrated throughout the day and take a warm (not hot) bath or shower 1/2 hour before bed...allow that last half hour to relax your mind- NOT look at the computer or work or school type things...
You need to train yourself to sleep....it sounds weird, but it can be done. Ive learned the hard way because as a fulltime student who works and travels for my job, Im basically attached to my Ipad, Blackberry and laptop. I force myself after 8 pm to put them away and refuse to use any of the devices. It has helped. Ive also started getting up at 5 am to exercise, instead of trying to do it on my way home from work...
