starlover - when i was pg, coz i was on and off the loo all nite and came back to bed, he was still twitching!.. 9 out of 10 he slept in the spare room and then it got to the point where i was missing him as it went on for months (we didnt sleep in the same bed for 3 months!! coz i was working at the time too) . its not his fault and docs said theres nothing they can do!.
what is annoying that when i first slept with him, it was the first 20 mins he was twitching and then he stop for the rest of the nite but now i go asleep and an hour or 2 later the twitching starts
Hi biglips, I used to get this quite badly and it drove my DP and me up the wall too. As WWB says, it's worth seeing the GP about this. In the end I tried acupuncture and it worked for me. I haven't had it for 4 years now and we all sleep much better! Good luck from an ex-twitcher x
It is called 'Restless legs Syndrome' AKA Ekboms syndrome. In some cases it can be caused by a vitamin deficiency, but in the vast majority of cases there is no known cause. Quinine can help some people.....so drink those G & Ts!
well i went out before and bought 2 bottles of tonic water - indian water. is this the only tonic water you can get by schweppes? as im desperate as when i go back to work in apr i dont want to be knackered or otherwise ill be chopping his legs off with a hedgetrimmer !!
hi biglips, I think the sessions were £25 and I had three. It was worth it! Wish I'd known about quinine, I could happily drink plenty of G&Ts. Schweppes do Indian tonic water and also a sugar-free version which still has quinine.
