I have RLS, and i'm 16 years old. It started happening during my teen years. It's something that i can control, i can suppress the urge to move my legs, but that is a horrible feeling. It feels better to just let them jerk. I recently started taking a birth control pill, for my acne, and have noticed that the RLS has gotten worse. I read somewhere that RLS does worsen during pregnancy, and my doctor told me that the pill that i am taking can simulate some effects of pregnancy. It does give me insomnia, but I really don't want to take meds for it. I just feel uncomfortable for treating a 'harmless' condition that though annoying, isn't really effecting my day to day life.
