why do I always shake my legs when laying down or sitting?
whenever I lay down or sit I always am shaking my legs, it really bothers me because I cant sleep because I need to stretch my legs or shake them, what is this? im really worried. I do have ADHD and I always need to move a body part of mine. Is it restless leg syndrome? Im also on Zoloft 100mg
Answers
I wouldn't try to diagnose it as RLS but maybe anxiety. Are you nervous or uncomfortable. Ask your doc about muscle relaxers. It should calm the nerves and you'll be able to mellow out.
