Hi. I wish that there was some help for you, and your restless legs. I too have had it for most of my life. I only know that it is worse, when I baby them. I never lost work because of my legs because while moving around, or working my legs did not trouble me. It was only when I stopped to rest that the restlessness set in. Sometimes a cool shower, helps, or standing on a cool tile floor. It is no sleep for me if my legs are too warm.Man made, synthetic socks or stockings will trigger the RLS. Pure cotton socks help some, but when I sit down, off they come too. Good luck.
