I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, and the fact that I use a CPAP machine and actually get some sleep is what I believe cured my restless legs. I rarely have a problem with them now, and they were so bad in my twenties and thirties that I would sometimes spend hours awake with them, using the stair stepper, taking hot baths, stomping up and down the stairs - anything.
I would really really like to know why the veins in my hands are bursting though.
