As it stands I do have a prescription to help RLS, but it is only so-so and is intended to use at night. On occasion I have used it during the day with mixed results (it does not make me tired). I can get up and move around, but immediately upon sitting down my legs want to absolutely crawl. Right now my legs have a borderline awful crawling feeling in them bad enough that it is hard to concentrate.
I have found that compression garments do provide some measure of relief and have found a couple of brands of compression pants that provide considerable compression on my legs without being tight, especially in the waist. I wear them commonly in under regular pants and typically they do provide a good deal of comfort/relief without medication—a real plus.
But today NOTHING seems to help. Not compression, not my regular prescription, not muscle relaxers, not even exercise. Does anyone else have this malady and have any useful way to alleviate the symptoms?
Thanks in advance,

In fact I get the worst RLS in the morning hours after I get up as opposed to night time.
