I just joined but have suffered with rls for 30 years. The thing that troubles me is why, if I can get my mind off of it, it goes away, until I think about it again. If I'm driving and can put on some good music that I really like or if I can get into a good conversation or when I'm home and really get into a t.v. show that holds my attention, it doesn't bother me. As soon as my mind has idle time, it's back. It's almost like a mental problem. I've thought about hypnosis to se if they can make me forget that I ever had it.
Anybody else have similar situations or explanations?
