: I just recently heard about RLS, and it amazed me that the symptoms i was having at night, was not just something unique to me, or at least my family. My mother talked about her legs hurting at night for years, and until the last couple of years I didn't understand exactly what she meant until, she started explaining it in more detail. She described it as an itching under her skin, as if she could scratch her bones it would'nt bother her so much. She also mentioned the urge to shake her legs all the time. I was amazed when I also began having these same syptoms and the only releif I have gotten is from a really hot bath. Never seen a doctor for this because it is infrequent, and the bath always helps. I'm 28 so, I'm expecting it to get worse as I get older, according to what I hear. Does anyone else have relatives, who also have RLS? I'm interested to hear about that. I'm also amazed that I happened to come across this information on RLS by accident. It is not well known condition. I am an LPN and have never even heard it mentioned that makes me sad and mad at the same time. Good luck to everyone!
Rls is hereditary and can come from either male or female ancestors.
