I have been having tingling in my legs for the last 6 weeks. It never stops. It's slight enough that I can't feel it when I'm moving but if I'm still, regardless of whether I'm sitting, standing or laying, I feel it. It never stops, day or night. I might get 10 seconds of relief after walking around for awhile, but that's the best I can hope for.
Does this sound like RLS? Or is this something else? It's ruining my life because I cannot sleep. I didn't sleep for even 5 minutes last night. Nothing. I have a ton of stress in my life and I don't have time for this.
So far, here's what I've tried (with no success):
I've been gluten free for 10 days
I take magnesium, iron, a B-complex, vitamin D, and an herbal sleep aid daily
I take probiotics twice a day
I drink kombucha
I avoid grains except for rice
None of the above has helped. Of course, I have been under a huge amount of stress. Just yesterday I was threatened/attacked by a homeless guy while walking down the street. I can't seem to go even one day without some major stressful event that causes my adrenaline to spike.
Oh, I should also mention that I saw a neurologist 5 weeks ago. He said I don't have Parkinson's or ALS, wrote me a script for a muscle relaxer (which doesn't work even a little bit) and that was that.
