I experience a feeling below my waist of extreme anxiousness and restlessness from the inside out and I cannot sleep or relax late at night when I try to goto sleep, it gets to the point where I really start freaking out cause its an extremely irritating feeling almost in my internal groin area what is this??
I'm really sorry you are experiencing this. I used to suffer from severe "restless legs" I'm not sure if this is what you have or not; but it only happened in the evening and/or night, and felt a constant need to move my legs... and even when I did-it didn't help. As expected that made me feel anxious, and just impossible to sleep. Coincidently, I was going undergoing a sleep study due to sleep apnea. When I mentioned this to her, to my surprise, she said "Oh, that's easy to fix!" Apparently, when you have restless leg syndrome, your Ferritin (sp.?) levels are low. - Not low for your average health, but low in the "sleep study world... " So, she recommended I take Iron Pills... the best one (but kind of pricey) is called "Slow-Fe"(over the counter) it is more gentle on your stomach. I took it for about 2 monthsc- After 3 days of taking this... NO more restless legs! Now I only take it as needed.
Hope this helps :)
