OK...all you restless leg sufferers..tell me if this is what you experience with it. I tend to only get it when I'm really tired OR if I can't go to sleep and lie in bed for a long time. My legs jerk uncontrollably and/or I need to straighten them...hard. I also get it in my arms - need to straighten my elbows - and my back wants to arch. Then, my skin gets hypersensitive and anything that touches me - clothes, sheets, a hair - makes me jerk. It's a feeling somewhere between pain and tickling. It's like my joints - and my spine - itch deep down inside where you can't possibly scratch, too. I'm seeing my regular doctor tomorrow for something else and I'm going to talk to her about this, but wondered if this is a pretty typical manifestation or not. Everything I read just talks about the legs, but doesn't mention the rest of the body or the skin hypersensitivity. It's really interfering with my sleep and I need something for it. Melatonin helps some - cause it helps me relax - but not always enough.
