I have for years had twitching in my calves. I read somewhere and agree it looks like the movement you would get in a bag of worms. This twitching never turns off it is 24/7. I only feel it when I am sedentary, sitting or lying down. I also have a deep discomfort in my lower legs that makes me readjust my sleeping position . I am only sometimes awaken by this aware of this, although I can most mornings recall that it was happening while asleep. My wife is unfortunately disrupted from getting the sleep she needs, and says my breathing gets more and more shallow until I jerk ,move ,and my breathing then picks up ,and the whole sequence repeats its self. Is this RLS or brought on by erratic breathing?
My medical history is:Two years ago I had a stent for CAD. I have due to nutritional excellence and exercise turned my life around. Reached BMI, Almost off all meds, Lipids great. My Dr is very happy with me. I am an avid runner 40 miles per week, resting pulse 44. 51 years old.
Thank you very much. for any suggestions.
