  • i had a friend one time and she went through the same thing,she said hot baths helped sometimes,and standing up helped,but id say if it continues go to your dr and see what he or she says to do for it. hope u get ur sleep.

  • my mother swears by this, and it will sound funny but it works. put a dry bar of soap under ur sheets near ur legs at night when u sleep. and during the day u can gently rub ur legs with the dry soap. idk y it works, but there are doctors out there that swear by it too. hope this helps.

  • sounds like restless leg syndrome to me. Usually they give you a low dose drug and it takes care of it. My brother in law has it. Sometimes I wonder if I have it too.

  • I have the same symptoms when I go to bed and sometimes when I am just sitting at the computer. I has a lot to do with our posture and may be a little arthritis... poor circulation is going on and we need to find out what is causing it. a regular doctor may not have all the answers, so with that said make sure you get to a specialist and get some test ran... I wouldn't jump for the medication thing right away for pain because it just masks the problem... we need to find the cause.. EXERCISE if just a little and healthy diet.

  • I stand up and stretch my leg muscles. Just touch your toes and don't bend your knees. That usaully works for me.
