Wow! Other RlS sufferers. Glad to hear, but very sorry for all. Have taken about everything under the sun from home remedies to prescription drugs, still no relief. Have been to several doctors and ask everyone, but always get the  ??? Of all my problems that is the one I would really like to whip, instead of getting so pilled up and walking the house till 3 or 4 a.m. Get so tired all I want do is go to bed, but noooo, got to keep legs happy and keep moving. Sorry, just a little venting going on almost got carried away.

Mike, I've been there too and it's no fun!  I've started another thread out on General Board if you want to join in the discussion.  (I'd add one of those fancy links if I could figure out how to do it!)  Good luck on getting some sleep tonight!

Guys I'am really not qualified to give medical advice but, prehaps your getting older and should pull the throttle back a notch or two. Mayby a warm shower and a happy snap or two before bed. Frank C.

Frank, you're absolutely right about the getting older part (better than the alternative!), but slowing down is bad (the more I sit around, the worse the RLS is), and happy snaps don't do much good either.  Hot herbal tea seems to be about the best.  OK, I guess I am getting older.   :)

I do hope you guys realize I'am not making light of folks problems. Hopefully as we get older we realize we're not the bull moose we used to be. That's why I always champion hydraulics on a mill. I can do everything (almost) that I could do when young just can't do it as long or as hard. Work smarter not harder. Frank C.

Lyle, if you keep putting in days like that, old age will be on fast forward. Stay warm mate. Frank C.

So far the only thing I have found about the "Golden Years" is the color of my urine and of the door knobs of the doctors offices I see.
