restless leg syndrome
Are any of you suffering from restless leg syndrome? I'm 30 weeks, and this problem first appeared for me about a month ago and has been driving me crazy at night ever since.

Any advice or tips on how to alleviate this?

Thanks!

Soaking in the bathtub with Epsom salts for a few minutes before bed help. I had the same problem and that really helped.

I've never been able to find a good solution to it. I always have it but when I'm pregnant, it gets terrible!! At night is the worst because you are trying to sleep. I just have to get up and walk around and do some leg stretches. Sometimes it takes a while for it to go away but walking does help some. I've never found a way to completely eliminate it though. Good luck.

I had this and it just about drove me bonkers.  What seemed to work best for me was sitting on the edge of the tub and running water as hot as I could stand just over my legs.  I would then put on wool socks.  I guess keeping them warm made the difference.  I also found it to be worse when I was tired or sitting for long stretches.  The good news is, once I delivered it stopped.  Good luck.

thanks for the advice! I posted the same question on another board, and someone there suggested I make sure I drink enough water. I've been trying to up my fluid intake since then and ... it just might be helping a bit!

It really is the strangest affliction.

Oh it is just awful!  It seriously drove me nuts.  I hope you find a solution that works for you, and that it ends.
