I am 51 and have had RLS since at least my early 20s. I did not know it had a name until about 10 years ago when someone in my office was diagnosed with it and then I looked it up. Bottom line is that I do not like doctors. My solution is that I sleep on the floor. I start the night in bed with my wife, but after about 30 minutes, I sleep on the floor beside the bed. I find that the hardness of the floor pressing against the muscles in my legs gives me some relief. I have a blanket and pillow down there and have not spent a whole night in a bed in over 25 years. Thinking back on it, my father never slept in a bed either. It is not perfect and I do not really fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning when exhaustion takes over, but it is how I saurvive.

What you are describing is my nightly routine to the Nth degree!!!!! I hate it soooo much. I almost want to cry nightly, because as you said...I will be sleeping for about 30 min. and my legs will wake me up. My husband doesn't understand the condition and quite frankly gets really annoyed. I am 28 years old and if I have to deal with this for the rest of my life, I will go INSANE. I am taking the highest dose of Mirapex and it isn't working AT ALL. I am going to try a few of the remidies on here just to try something new. Best of luck to you!
