I'm 36 weeks pregnant and have suffered this throughout my whole pregnancy but now it's just getting beyond annoying.
I can't sleep, I'm so twitchy (I have no other way to describe it) at night I can lay in bed let alone sleep. When it got really bad panadol worked for some reason - not any more
Does anyone suffer with this? Any suggestions for relief ?

Yep, I third magnesium.
I personally recommend having it in drink form though, I was taking a high dose before mine would ease, then tried the drink forms & didn't need as much the swisse brand have a fizzy one that was great for me.

I had it terrible during my first pregnancy, never had it during my second, didn't have it for years and have it again.
I googled it and am waiting for tablets to arrive from the US that has a combination of magnesium and other things in there. Hoping they will work.
I find "Elmore oil" helps.

Have you tried gently stretching out the muscles?
I've suffered from restless arms and legs most of my life. Thankfully it has never been bad enough for me to need to take anything for it. Mine starts when i am overtired and only stretching and going to bed eases it.

You could also try soaking your legs in Epson salts. May offer swifter relief than magnesium tablets. I used both, but make sure you get a high dose magnesium such as blackmores.
