Re: Please help my legs!
I would seek help from a doctor, to get a proper diagnosis. You can ask your doctor for a referral to a sleep specialist, who will perform a sleep study, to diagnose the severity of your RLS, and prescribe the proper medication, if needed.
The sleep study consists of one overnight at a sleep clinic, where they monitor your sleep. It is actually quite interesting, and not bad at all. You arrive late in the evening, you get wired up, and go to sleep. When you awake, you go home. A little weird, but not bad at all.
I have severe RLS, and my hubby now wakes me up. I wish you well!
