If I stand still for more than 5-10 minutes, my legs begin to itch badly. It gets worse as I stand still. The only way to stop it is to walk around, which helps the slowest, or sit which helps fastest. They turn red too. I've been to the doctor multpile times. They test for diabetes every time and when they find that isnt the case send me home. I don't have diabetes. I would however like to know what it is thats wrong. I know I have low blood pressure, so I thought maybe something from that, but I can't find anyone who mentions suffering from it. I can't find anything at all that sounds like what I feel, and my doctors are idiots. Anyone have any ideas?

  • Your symptoms sound to me like they are associated with Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). Here's some info:NIH criteria In 2003, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus panel modified their criteria to include the following: an urge to move the limbs with or without sensationsimprovement with activityworsening at restworsening in the evening or night. RLS is either primary or secondary.Have your docs looked at this as a possibility? The itchy feeling is associated with RLS. It sounds the doctor's keep ruling out some kind of peripheral neuropathy.......Hope this helps!
