I am 64 years old and have suffered with RLS for over 10 years. It was just on occasional evening and never when I was in bed but after using pain relief patches containing morphine and again after a recent operation and being given morphine, my symptoms have increased dramatically, so that I now suffer almost every evening and if not the evening, then overnight, so much that I often have to get out of bed 2 or 3 times and walk around. If I am distracted the symptoms miraculously disappear. I have tried drinking tonic water which contains quinine and also quinine tablets and clonidine and amitriptyline from doctor, but nin of these has worked. My son and daughter also suffer with mild symptoms and my husband also occasionally had fidgety legs in bed - what a family!
