I've had severe RLS for about 17 years. For at least the last 10 years I've had to take meds every day. If I'm late or forget then my RLS kicks in. The exception to this is when I am sick with a stomach bug or have a fever. Does anyone know why I wouldn't have RLS when I'm sick? What is different that keeps my body from having RLS when I'm ill. Is it like this for anyone else?
