    lone pine I find that showering my bottom and legs and feet with water as hot as I can take it seems to stop my for m of restless legs – worth a try? think magnesium supplement may help to – try researching that one.

    Yep – showering helps me too. Fills some of the long evening before bedtime too!

    I'm not aware of the link but it is very possible. Best to consult GP if concerned.

    It's inflammation of the eyelids, Makes them feel gritty. I think it may be an age thing as well but I have worn contact lenses for several years and they now feel very dry if i wear them for any length of time.

Have a good week and good luck.

    Hi chrispy, thanks for your reply. I'm aware of these drugs. The friend I mentioned in an comment earlier tried these from her gp. On the whole they didn't help long term & as a last resort she was offered some medication that the side effects were so risky she decided to put up with the restless legs. Therefore I don't want to go down that road. I'll stick with sleepio & try to understand more about my sleep etc. Have found the community very helpful & supportive with all the various comments.
