Restless legs syndrome is a problem that I have been dealing with for many years.
- Restless legs is a condition that causes the legs to move on their own in the night time hours.
Moving around and getting up can temporarily help with the pains, but one thing that I found that really helps is medical marijuana. I used medical marijuana for several years and I found it to be absolutely helpful for restless legs. I was sleeping at night and I hardly ever had to wake up in the middle of the night to walk around. Then I moved in with my boyfriend who lives in a state where medical marijuana is not legal and I could no longer access marijuana easily. Every once in a while I found a person who could hook me up with an ounce, and I made the marijuana last as long as I could. After 6 months of living there, the problems with my RLS were too significant to ignore. I had to move back home so I could access medical marijuana. My boyfriend and I broke up, because he wasn’t going to move away from his daughter and his son. He had been married once before. I understood why he did not want to leave his family, but I could not stay there either. When I thought about moving back home, I realized that I could move anywhere that I wanted. I looked at the prices for some condos in states where recreational marijuana is legal. I found several affordable condos so I decided to move to the west coast after our break up.
