Greetings my friends, My name is David Chapman, I came in through Zoints, which my new friend, Liz is giving a shot. Just as a disclaimer, I work for Zoints, but I asked Liz's permission to take part in this community because I noticed you have a forum dedicated to Restless Leg Syndrome, which I have. I'm a 28 year old male currently residing in Arizona but am a native Californian. Does Arizona count as a "southern" state or am I going to be ostracized? Regarding RLS, it's something I think I have had since day one. I quite literally can not stop moving my leg (usually just my left, sometimes just my right, occasionally both). If I do stop, it is physically uncomfortable for me. As I sit here typing this, my left leg is moving at a million miles per hour. The one benefit, I can eat whatever I want and not get fat because it burns a couple billion calories a day! From what I understand, they don't know exactly what causes RLS. I must admit, I think there may be an environmental factor. My best friend and I who grew up 1 block from each other and are one year apart in age both have RLS. Both of us sitting at the same dinner table will have the table shaking so bad it drives people nuts. I've taken a few different prescription drugs, none of which helped. The one thing that DOES help me is yoga. For whatever reason, yoga (which I took up early this year) has been a godsend. It allows me to calm my body and mind and subsequently put my leg to rest without physical discomfort. For the first time in, well, forever, I am able to sleep through the night. Well, this is getting lengthy. I look forward to meeting all of you. And if you have any trouble with Zoints, have feedback so we can make improvements, etc, by all means, let me know! You can reach me here or at http://david.zoints.com (warning, a couple people have posted less than perfect language on my profile. We're working on better filtering technologies).
