achy legs


Posted by Charlene Waller on October 07, 1999 at 07:06:40:

Trying to figure out if the symptoms my husband experiences
are related to RLS or not. Any information would be helpful
thank you.
Here are his symptoms he describes it as having a sinsus infection, but only in his legs instead of his head. His legs ache, they are uncomfortable when he has been sitting
and when trying to sleep at night. He has previously gotten up to walk around with some relief, but not much.
He complains that his legs hurt in the morning and that they will ache at night keeping him from sleep. He says that if he keeps them in one position too long and doesn't move them than he us unable to bend them for x amount of time.
Does this sound like RLS or does he have a orthopedic problem with his knees and legs?
I do not notice any kicking or spams from his legs at night.
