finds someone to a cure, one suffers. One that is me. I have
suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome, as I was about four years old. My grandmother used to me to theater: ballets, operas, musicals, etc. I can remember how, after a few years ago witnessed the terrible burning and itching sensations along with the more sightly Twitch, I got to expect the appearance of these symptoms and thus came to fear the shows. I knew that what was before me was a long night of sitting in a small, uncomfortable seat, and literally ready, my leg pain to subside, while willing, the performance ended.
snack bars, bathrooms, telephones, smoking outside the venues? I know these places all too well in almost every arena, where people go to work for longer than half an hour at a time. Because if you have Restless Leg Syndrome to sit still that long is almost unbearable and really really painful. They sit through the performance, and instead of concentrating on what is happening on the stage, your thoughts closer to finding out when will the next time you find an excuse to leave your seat and not abnormal draw attention to itself? I am sure that all RLS sufferers would agree with me that breaks are the best part of the benefits. It is at this time, where we don? T a scene out of our seats for pace. It is at this stage we can stand up and stretch (and oh, how good it feels to stretch) our legs, as if just with the flow, you know, just in case, because we had one hour left , Or the toilet? just in case?. With RLS, it is the case. Every Time. And each sufferer can assure you it is unfortunate.

This is probably the only way I could even close to describing how annoying and inconvenient it is for patients with restless-leg syndrome. Plus, in addition to the tingling sensations and painful Twitch, we miss out on many things that we really enjoy the experience, such as movies, and the kind of benefits previously discussed. Not to mention the awkwardness, with the excuse you from business meetings each time, or worse, does not excuse himself and dealing with the pain and twitching.

Restless Leg Syndrome is difficult for the suffering end and unfortunately, the disorder masks itself well to drag the appearance of almost as an everyday, common symptom of tired legs from extended use.
