Has anyone seen any research or scientific information regarding why RLS hits during resting or trying to go to sleep. I've read that dopamine (a brain chemical) is a contributor to RLS. Just don't know how or why. I have no problems as long as I am up and moving - no matter how late. But to lie down to rest or to go to sleep and BAM it hits with a vengance. Often, even if I've taken meds that seem to be working, once I turn off the light while lying in bed and begin to fall asleep the twitching begins and gets worse, the aching starts and I'm making pilgrimages to the medicine cabinet to increase my med intake to try and stop it. Just wondering if anything has been written about what the corrolation is between rest/sleep and the onset of the RLS symptoms.
