I finally got sleepy enough to fall asleep and then, guess what? Unbelievable. My legs started up again. And they are driving me absollutely nuts.
It probably is Restless Leg Syndrome. Whatever it is, I hate it.
I want to describe this for myself, so if anyone is reading this, so sorry.
My legs don't really hurt like most pain, but I have to move them. This is so very hard to explain. It hurts, but not in the usual sense. It's almost like my legs are trying to cramp.
In any event, it certainly does prevent sleep.
I used to have this a long time ago, then I didn't have it any more. But then I started on some new meds, Seroquel and (can't remember), and that is when it started again. But I have been off of the one med for several months and the Seroquel for about a month and I still get this.
When I was on these meds, whatever this is was really, really bad - not just in so far as how often, but how bad it was. Now I only get it every once in a while, but believe me, that is enough.
So I am sitting here wishing that I could sleep. I took some Clonazepam. I hope that helps as I need to get to sleep so I can do the things I need to do today.
