Quite a while back, I wrote here about a series of ads promoting the treatment of something called "Restless Leg Syndrome," or RLS - which also happens to be my initials. Recently, I happened to come across a couple of brochures on the disease, with tips and advice that make me feel just a bit uneasy. Here are a few examples:
"People with RLS describe their symptoms differently. For some it's a creepy-crawly, tugging, pulling, twitching, or itching sensation..."
....not the first time I've heard that.
"Primary RLS is characterized by unpleasant feelings in your legs."
Fine, I'll keep my hands to myself.
"Nearly half of RLS sufferers have a family history of the condtion."
If I make you so miserable, just tell me to leave!
"Only your doctor can diagnose RLS."
I prefer to use my own doctor, thank you.
