Those who suffer with this condition find it difficult to describe the sensations they feel that cause them to move their legs. As a result some people believe the condition is not physical but mental. Whatever your opinion, if any, about RLS might be, I would like to direct you to www.rls.com. It is the site of the RLS foundation. Thanks, Chris

Hi Iburmaster. I have had RLS since I was a child. I see a neurologist regularly. I find that people around me have a hard time getting their heads around this disease. I would like to be more involved in public education about RLS. Thanks.
So, if a doctor makes a mistake and misses a fracture in your leg, the pain caused by it is psychosomatic, because there hasn't been found a physical cause? Cause that's what you're actually saying!
Penth Hane, Would you mind clarifying who your comment was directed to? I wasn't sure if it was me or Iburmaster. Thanks.
To be considered a psychological condition, it would have to be observed over several months. By that point, a doctor should notice your condition.
kiera, it is always nice to talk to someone who knows what I am talking about. I am sorry you suffer so much. Than you for taking the time to pass on such good advice. I know one person with spina bifida and he has a hard life.
Spina bifida occulta. It's in the base of your neck. It can be missed with MRI and CT scans. The cysts can hide in the abdomen.
Lesions can even be found in your wrists.
