Restless Legs and Arms

Hi,

I am a severe sufferer of Restless Legs and Arms. The severity of this disorder is increasing day by day. I struggle to come to rest at night, even though my body is dead tired. The urge to move my limbs is overwhelming and it is causing deep depression as I am deprivded of sleep.

Is there any over the counter remedy to assist me with this disorder, or am I doomed to be dependand on sleeping pills?

Please, Please help!!!

Some people are helped by increasing their iron intake, and you could try this.

Sleeping pills are not the answer - we use certain medications (in very low doses) to stop the restless legs, and you might need to discuss this with someone who knows about the condition.
