Nervousness/Restless Legs Syndrome

Posted by paula richards on September 02, 1999 at 22:57:48:

I suffer from panic attacks and severe anxiety. Once in a great while I will awaken from a short duration of sleep very nervous. It feels like my heart is going fast, when I take my pulse in my neck, it seems to be beating slightly fast, but on the outside of my body it feels like its going REAL fast. Know what I mean? Then my legs begin to quiver ( I think its called restless legs syndrome). Within 30 mins the shaking stops, and after about 10 minutes, the fast (seems to be) heartrate is back to normal. Any explanation for this? I had a complete wrk up in march, all was perfect. I'm a 45 1/2 yr old female.

Hi, Paula.

There is a book that was written about you and several more that were written with you in mind.

The one written about you is "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer" by Dr Pelletier. One written with you in mind is "The Relaxation Response" by Herbert Benson, MD (professor at Harvard med school).

While you are learning, you could get very significant relief by getting a total-body, deep, therapeutic massage at least 3 times a week for 2 weeks. This benefit will last a few weeks.

THEN tell us how you feel.

The perfect thing will be for you to become an expert in SR. Go to the articles on the home page and read about Skilled Relaxation, and everything about stress effect. Go to the glossary for any unfamiliar terms and then to the archives and spend a few hours.

Walt
