Restless leg syndrome
madman79 posted:
I have had this problem my whole life, even as a child.... going through countless nights of a lack of sleep. I have tried to exercise my legs, taken many different medications and so far i have only found one thing that knocks me out cold. Its something i have been against my whole life. Shortly before i go to bed, i smoke, i go outside and take a few puffs and go to bed and im out and its the only time of day that i smoke. Im not speaking of tobacco either. I have never in my life slept better. It may not be for everyone however, it has done wonders for me!

Hi Madman,

Welcome and thanks for sharing! I'm sorry to hear that RLS has been affecting your sleep for so long.

Yours is not the first testimony I have heard in regards to medical marijuana helping ease the symptoms. Have you mentioned to your doctor how well it has helped? What is his/her opinion?
