Legs Go To Sleep

On top of all my already existing issues, like, insomnia, depression, anxiety and all my phobias, I am also struggling with restless leg syndrome. It’s such a terrible thing to go through especially when you’re trying desperately to fall asleep and your legs won’t let you. Here is a small description of what it is;

I swear, I want to rip my legs off and beat myself over the head with them like they were a pair of drumsticks, to shut my mind up so I could sleep. My legs are literally driving me crazy. I’m laying in bed moving my legs back and forth, stretching, wiggling my toes, just shaking in bed. I can’t stand it. I want it to stop. I hate this. It seems like I have everything working against me just to see me miserable. I walked around the house and up and down the hall, like a zillion times. I’m out of options and ideas. If any of you know what RLS is and know of a remedy I can use to attempt to get some rest, I would greatly appreciate it. I feel like punching my legs as if they were boxing bags. Well, sorry, just another rant because I am not taking any meds for RLS, so I thought I’d release some frustration here on wordpress. Sorry and thank you.

  1. I know a bit about RLS, but unfortunately not how to cure it. My sympathies.

    • I just have to deal with it along with everything else. 😦 Thank you though.

  2. Just Plain Ol' Vic

    Eat more bananas, not joking. The potassium will actually help calm some of those symptoms naturally. I used to have it bad but I usually have a banana every day and I essentially have no more issues.

  3. My mother-in-law had this problem and got beyond it by drinking tonic water in the evenings. It contains a small amount of quinine, which helps.

    I get RLS periodically after taking some meds. It is exhausting!

    • Tonic water? Hmm. I have to look into that as well. I’m willing to try anything. And, yes, you are absolutely right, it is exhausting. Thank you for the suggestion.
