Thursday, September 15, 2005 A resource for people with Restless Legs Syndrome

Heavily advertised on US television at the moment, usually causing me to roll my eyes and mutter “only in America” to myself: being twitchy (or as Kramer puts it in Seinfeld, having the “jimmy legs”) is a syndrome now? The Glaxo-Smith-Kline branding at the bottom is a bit of a giveaway; yep, they have a drug to push. It’s real, though: it can be quite uncomfortable and cause nasty sleep problems. More at the (non-profit) RLS Foundation. (I’m a jiggler, but without any other symptoms; never thought anything of it before.)
