is it RLS


When i lie down and when i sleep, i get a twitching in my legs, mainly my left one at the moment.

It kind of builds up and up then my leg spasms, i can feel it building up till it does this, and it starts doing it as soon as i lay down.

My ex partner said i used to "waggle" my legs in my sleep too.

I have been getting this for a long time now, i would say at least 7yrs but have not yet mentioned it to my doctor or had any treatment for it.

Is this RLS?

Re: is it RLS

One of the simple remedies is tonic water. Just a medicine cup (30 cc) is enough. The quinine in it does seem to help RLS. I am a nurse, and work with a doctor who prescribes it before moving on to medications. Hope this is helpful.
