Re: rls during the day
I am bothered with RLS all day long. I sit behind a desk for eight hours, and sometimes it gets pretty miserable. Like you, I kick a lot, get up and walk around, rub my legs, anything I can think of to cope. At home I stretch my legs...bend down and touch my toes to stretch them.
Do you have problems riding in a car for any distance? That has been torture for me, too. And sitting through a dinner/theatre...there have been times when I think I'll go crazy! What a weird ailment to have!
I've had this for as long as I can remember, but it has gotten much worse as I get older (I'm 58). I currently take Carbidopa/Levadopa. This runs in my family. My mother, aunt, cousin, brother, and son all have it. I apologized to my son for passing it along to him. Sure wish I didn't have it......
