I have been suffering for over a year and getting progressively worse. I hate going to the doctor but now I see that I have to do something. I thought this was all in my imagination......simple stress but after reading this site I see that I am not alone. The pain/cramping is torture at night. Now it has moved into my hands. I need somebody to talk to..... I am scared.
I think this website has an RLS forum now. Also there are a couple other websites devoted solely to RLS. I have it, the severe and painful kind, 24/7. I am treated with opiates, and there are several other drugs for the condition, so visiting a doctor is a good idea, to not only give you medication, but also to rule out another nerve disorder or circulation problem.
