I have recently been diagnosed with RLS. It makes sense. however it does not explain everything. I have horrible cramping in my legs. I am tiny...5'2...after I had my son I was keeping around 109...I eat constantly but I do not gain weight. I recently dropped to 97 despite my large appetite. If i do not eat I get weak, shakey, and very out of it. I have these bumps on my hands and feet that seemed to come from nowhere. My feet will get very hot even when I am cold. My hands are usually cold, but every now and then will get extremely hot as well...mainly when i work out. My hair falls out like crazy (it is thick and always fell out some, but recently more than usual) I never put any of it together, I usually made excuses for everything, but my Mom told me she was considered high risk for diabetes. I know nothing about diabetes. My Mom is adopted so we know nothing about medical conditions of her parents etc. I am in the military and have had no luck with military drs. Any ideas?
