    I'm 55 and my legs have been twitching every night for the past few years.  I think it may be restless leg syndrome, but my doctor won't confirm it.  It keeps me wide awake at night and nothing I take seems to help.

    Hi , I've had restless legs for years. Magnesium supplements really help and propanol from the doctor. Also keeping my legs cool helps(I stick them out the bed)hope this helps x
