: : I feel restless legs all day and night. There is no history of this in my family and I need to get this under control, being a college student who goes to school 3,000 miles away from home. Is it possible that this will ever go away? I'm only 20 restless legs is temporary because Im healthy? If anyone has answers please respond, Ive only had this for 2 months and will not be able to handle this for much longer
: John: Your doctor probably screwed up. If you have rls, it undetectable by any means during the usual physical examination. The only way he/she would detect your rls is to have your relax and try to sleep and measure the motion impulses in your limbs. I'll bet they didn't do that, nor did they listen to you with any great attention. Go to a neurologist and describe your symptoms and mention the term "rls" and assert yourself because there are a lot of doctors out there who don't themselves have the condition, don't know anyone who has it, and don't read a journal from year to year and aren't competent to deal with a patient afflicted with rls. There are lots of meds (with lots of side effects) which can help you. Get started before your classes get serious! The best to you...Don
