I am 29 years old and for the past month or so I have been experiencing these weird sensations in my legs when I lie down at night to go to sleep. I can't really describe it other than this creeping kind of feeling that feels like it is coming from deep inside my legs and I get this overwhelming feeling like I have to MOVE my legs NOW (but my legs don't move involuntarily). It happens for maybe a half hour or so before I fall asleep and then a few times throughout the night. It is kind of at the point now where I get anxiety about going to bed because I am dreading getting the weird feeling in my legs. I have had trouble sleeping all of my life, and have a history of anxiety and clinical depression, but have never had this before. I am going to speak with my Dr. about it when I go in for my checkup this summer, but I guess I am just trying to figure out if what I am describing make sense. So I guess my questions are:
1) Does this sound like what anyone else has experienced?
2) Does RLS get worse over time? Right now what I am feeling is unpleasant but not necessarily debilitating, but I am afraid it might get worse
3) Is it typical to start experiencing symptoms so young?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or insights anyone may have!
