: I am 40 years old and have had Restless Leg Syndrome for years. The first time I experienced it I was a teenager watching a football game on T.V. I got this feeling in my legs that made me want to jump. I just shook them until it was gone. When I became pregnant with my first child I had the nerve racking feeling every night.I would shake my legs half the night and spend the rest of it in a hot bath. My doctor didn't understand so I learned to suffer in silence. So did my sister experienced the thing during her second pregnancy. I experienced the thing during my second pregnancy and beyond, and now the thing has moved to my spine! Yes my spine! Now instead of shaking throughout the night, I toss, I turn, and I rub my fist into my back. I don't have(and never have had) tingling, pain, or itching. It is not an ache. I can only say that the thing is a sensation that I call a raw exposed nerve that is wound up too tight or an electrical live wire type feeling. The sensation cannot be described by any verb I know. I only know it is very uncomfortable and keeps me awake at night.
: I would like to know if there is anyone else who has had the thing move into their spine?

My father has had rls in his spine for years, he has not had a decent night sleep in a very long time and I am trying to find something to help him. He has been to many doctors who tell him that
it cannot be rls if its not in his legs. But he knows it is. Have you been told this ? do you have any suggestions?
