: Thanks, Teri for your response. Sounds like we have a lot in common. My husband finally had a sleep study last week and will start treatment next week at the local medical school's sleep clinic. You are lucky that your husband's problem hasn't affected his personality - believe me, it can be an impossible situation to live with. I was only able to get the sleep I need to survive after we moved to separate bedrooms - not the ideal marital situation. Good luck to you.

My heart goes out to you. My wife suffers from a terrible case of RLS. Some of the medication she has tried caused her severe lung problems, and the sad thing is that it was the only medication that helped.

We have been married over 30 years, and she has had RLS all of those years, but the last 5 or 6 have been terrible. She literally wears through the mattress pads with her leg movements.

She has gone from the sweetest loving person in the world to a depression ridden person that enjoys nothing, and who is always irritable.

It effects me too, and our whole family life is going down hill.

This disease can truly break a family up as easily as alcoholism, or drugs.

I love her, and will stay with her no matter what, but we are miserable most of the time. I know that things will change if she can just find something that will stop this condition.

My hopes and prayers go out to you.
