Re: would this be considered RLS?
To tell you the truth, as I am typing this, my right leg is jumping up and down too. I don't think it's RLS though, I think it's a bad habit. People tell me to quit too, but I can't and I don't even know I am doing it most of the time. RLS is not just your legs, it's your whole body, and it's kind of hard to explain. I only get it when I have withdrawal symptoms from opiates, it sort of feels like you want to crawl out of your skin, you can't be still, but when you get up to walk around, you just want to go back in bed and then up again and down, up again and down...........continuously. /And the restlessness is "inside" your body and in all your muscles...
I have noticed my leg shaking more since I started taking Abilify which is an add-on therapy to anti-depressives, but since it's the only side effect and it seems to be helping, I don't want to stop taking it.
