Restless Leg Syndrome

9:40 AM -- I don't watch much TV but I had the tube on last night while I was prepping some CTIA photos at the hotel and an ad for a cure for "restless leg syndrome" -- or RLS -- came on. What on earth is that? I mean I tap my foot all the time, is that RLS?

I don't think it really matters anyway. Sounds like the side effects of the cure are worse than the disease. The disclaimer warned that the medicine might cause a desire to gamble or "other strong urges."

Hey doc, that stuff stopped my leg twitching but I can't afford another prescription because I lost it all on the slots in Atlantic City!
