Restless Leg Syndrome Message Board

Restless Leg Syndrome Board Index

hi everyone. I have never posted on this board here but I hope someone can help me. I have been suffering with insomnia for about 5 years. I have never had a sleep study done but the doctor has tried me on different meds and the only thing that seems to consistently work every night for me to get to sleep is 1 mg of klonopin. The doctor thinks it is anxiety related so she put me on Celexa 20 mg and after a few months she put me on 40mg. I told her my mood was definately better but still have sleep issues (I don't snore,etc either). She thinks I have anxiety that I am unaware of! I do have 2 kids but I feel pretty stress free when I lay down at night. I do have a 4 year old who constantly keeps me busy..he is very active and we live in a two story house so I am constantly up and down the stairs. I do feel wired, kind of like I have been exercising and I feel tension in my legs and move them about a decent amount plus I usually get up with my 4 year old through the night to let him pee, etc. If this is restless leg syndrome, I go to my dr. in about a month, are there some things I can try to help this awful insomnia to see if it is rls? It is ruining my life not sleeping well. Please give me tips, advice, things to try before I go to the dr (since she thinks it is all anxiety), so that I can figure out if this is the root cause of my sleeping issues!!thanks
