Re: Tightness in Calf Muscle
RLS typically presents with a creepy crawly feeling in the legs, that makes you feel the need to kick, or move them in a restless manner when you are trying to relax, and go to sleep. They make you need to move, and can be very disruptive during the night time hours.
I feel my RLS as a uncontrollable thing, rather than something in my muscles. RLS is based in the brain, and should not be affected by excessive exersize, like sore muscles could.
Mine is relieved with medication, which is Requip, and I use a high dosage of 2 mg. My RLS was brought on by strokes, but I do not know the most typical causes of RLS. Hopefully some of our other's can offer you some more information...Best to you!
