I too suffer from RLS. I get terrible achy, throbbing, jumpy legs throughout the night.
My RLS causes my legs to jump and spasm throughout the night. I can be completely asleep and in a blink of an eye I'll be wide awake due to the jumpiness of my legs.
In addition to taking a muscle relaxant every night I also take vitamins, C, E, calcium and potassium daily.
My doctor checks my vitamin & potassium levels several times a year.
My RLS comes in spurts. If the jumpiness goes on for more than two to three weeks in a row, I know it's time to get my vitamin levels checked.
The only benzodiazepine I've tried for my RLS was diazepam. It worked but it made me too sleepy in the mornings I took it.
Now, before I go to bed I take one 10 mg Flexeril.
