Restless leg syndrome is a pain in the butt... I guess I should say the legs. It involves an irritating urge to move the legs and is accompanied by weird sensations in the muscles that can feel like burning, itching, tickling, or just feeling antsy. It's usually worse in the evening, and can interfere with sleep. What do you do for it? I've tried medication, but it did nothing to stop it. Anybody have any suggestions? What works for you?

I've never heard of surgery for this condition, since there is no definite source of the problem. Are you sure that is what he had? It may have been something else.

Oh yeah, I've had RLS before, but not so much anymore thankfully! I do know that it can be very frustrating. My doctor prescribed flexeril, which is a muscle relaxant. The only trouble with that is that it makes me very drowsy, so I can't take it if I have RLS in the middle of the day unless I'm willing to take a nap right then. My dad had it often when he would come home from work and sit in his chair - he'd often take a snooze and stamp his leg up and down repetitively while snoozing. But back then, RLS wasn't medically recognized, so he just suffered through it. I hope you find a solution!
