I have terrible restless legs and can`t sleep well

Hi, i need help to sleep. I am 32 weeks pregnant and i`m having my baby by c-section on the 8th of july. I have terrible restless legs and can`t sleep well after 2 sometimes 3am, by then I am completly shattered. I am taking polaramin, an antihistamine which is safe but it`s not working, i have a horlicks, not working either. I am going crazy. I tried to lay down today while my toddler slept and no good. I have 5.5 weeks to go but not sure how much more i can take. I know i need to rest but i can`t and it`s getting me really upset and angry, which is not good. Should i go to my Dr or is there something else i can try u might know of. Lisa

Answer: Hi Lisa, There are stronger medications that can be used at night to assist you to get a better night’s sleep. Please visit your GP. Best wishes, Alex
