: I've also had it for several years and no pain associated with it. In the past, it would come and go. I know this sounds weird - but I live in the Midwest and it seemed to get a lot worse as soon as the weather started getting warmer?! I found that leg stretching right before I got in bed would help to some degree. I'm 43 years old and just starting menopause. I'm having a lot of problems with edema (water retention) and RLS. My doc has prescribed a diuretic but it isn't helping much. Which is what brings me to these message boards. I've been taking calcium for years for leg cramps, but that does nothing for the RLS. I'm going to try Vitamin E and see if that helps.
: I'm really trying to avoid taking hormones or any other drugs for these things.
: If you find any relief, please let me know.
I am 71 and have had rls for about 60 years. There was no pain until a few years ago. The pain became more severe and was all over my body not just in my legs. Mirapex has almost eliminated both the rls and the pain. I understand your reluctance to use drugs but when you cannot function otherwise due to sleep deprivation the choice becomes easy.
