HELP!

It's 1:41 in the morning.
I've got a PACKED day!
And three little letters are keeping me awake...

RLS


I'd love your thoughts, suggestions, methods for removing my legs each night so I can get some sleep...anyone...anyone??!?!!??

I don't know how to help but there is nothing worse than not being able to sleep. Agh!! So sorry.

Heidi said...

(((hugs)))!!!

No advice, never had to deal with RLS... Charlie Horses, yes, RLS, No.

Melissa said...

Oh I'm so sorry! I hate those kinds of nights. Hope you finally got to sleep!

rachel said...

uhg, must be genetic, Adam gets it too. I hate when he keeps me awake with the leg shaking! Sorry, but no solutions here...if you find one, will you let us know?

Tell Dave you need a nightly trip to the spa for a massage. Is this why you were up bright and early today?
P.S. At first I thought RLS was for Real Salt Lake. DAAAHHHH!

Kami said...

sorry Beck, that stinks. I don't know if I have had this or not.

Lisa Cannon said...

That is a major bummer! I hope it finally relaxed and you were able to get some sleep. I was up then, too. I am TIRED today. I feel a nap coming on!

Debbie said...

I just get through the night and move on. It won't be so bad the next night. Also, caffeine is bad I think.

I hate RLS, I have suffered for so long. It is in our genes.

Anners said...

I'm a bad sleeper, but not because of RLS.

There is nothing more frustrating than not sleeping - you just feel and operate so crappily without it!

No advice, but sympathy & lots of it.

Mirapex, I think it is called, is what Dan takes. It works!

Beach Girl said...

There is a new mediaction for RLS. Talk to your doc about it.

Thank goodness for Google Reader, Blogger and Facebook for sleepless nights right?!

Tiburon said...

I know there is medication. Adam has RLS and takes something for it...

I hope you get it fixed - not being able to sleep is the WORST!

Becky that sucks! My sister has RLS and so did my mom. I think they both take/took medicine. Have you seen a doc about it? So sorry, there is nothing worse then not being able to sleep. Hope you are doing better!

i joke--i've had insomnia for years and there is NOTHING WORSE. except maybe for rls.

Mindi said...

Omgirl said...

I didn't know you have RLS! I sometimes get that if I've been on my feet a lot during the day. I find that sleeping pills help.

Some people put a bar of soap in between their sheets, and apparently that helps... http://www.peoplespharmacy.com/archives/home_remedies/soap_under_the_sheets_for_rls_leg_cramps.php

Sorry for the comment however many weeks after. I just found your blog through my google reader recommended feeds.
