I have never heard of your electric currant thing. It sounds very interesting and I can certainly see how annoying it would be when you are trying to sleep. Let me know if you find out anything about it. Have you had it for a long time?

A couple years (well, many years) ago both my mother and I had a virus that sent electric jolts down our arms and legs. We called it the Shooting Stars illness. I never had it again, my mother had it again the next year.

Chris, that's an interesting theory! Who know? Maybe you're onto something in certain instances. I know I'm not bi-polar myself, nor am I particularly active. I also don't drink diet drinks or sodas, and the only caffeine I occasionally drink before bed is a cup of tea.
With me, all it takes is the mere thought of RLS (such as, "Oh thank goodness, my legs are good tonight!" or, "Don't think about restless legs!") and that's it- my legs are restless. It drives me nuts!

Amazingly, though, I'd take RLS over this jittery brain/innards/eye thing, any day! It is really getting to me. I just can't figure it out.

This is pure conjecture on my part. Lately I have wondered if there could be some relationship between RLS and Bi-Polar. I work with a person who is Bi-Bolar. She can never sit still, even when she is exhusted. Something in her brain drives her to get back up and walk. It is like she has RLS all day too, not just at night. So I am wondering if you are a very active person?

Now this is taking another track! I had RLS for a while, also severe cramps in my feet and legs whenever I sat down to relax. I began to associate the cramps with drinking artificially sweetened drink mixs and bottled diet tea. I would get home from work, sit down and relax with a big glass of Crystal Light, and twenty minutes later have cramping. I quit drinking any artifcially sweetened drink for a while, and the cramps and RLS went away. I do drink it now occasionally with no trouble.

I've been reading through several of these posts can't believe how many people out there suffer from the same things I do: restless legs, brain that won't shut off, anxiety.

I agree with everyone about journalling for the brain that won't shut off. And I was told to take 3000mg of Vit C 30 mins before bed for stress and anxiety- seems to help. RLS will forever be the bane of my existance, I fear. I've been suffering it for as long as I can remember- 5 years old and trying to explain why I couldn't lay still in bed.

I haven't come across this yet, though.
Is there anyone out there who has a vibration sensation throughout their whole body while trying to sleep? I'm talking about inside my body and my brain. It almost feels as though there is an electric current flowing through making everything hum and shake. Even my eyes! I don't get it! And it's driving me up the wall.
