Is there an epidemic? Tell you the truth, I'm not an expert so I'm not sure every bouncing foot or leg is RLS. I am, however, seeing a LOT of bouncing. Sunday afternoon I was in a theater and a 20 something male, BTW, this will mostly deal with 20 something males....was bouncing the foot that was in the air near me. Later that day I was in a bookstore and a young man was, bouncing his foot. Today, waiting for a car repair a young man sitting near me was, B.H.F. At the usual mad frantic pace. Minutes later, a middle-age man (maybe he was immature) was doing the whole leg bounce. Toe on floor, raising heel up and down, real fast, endlessly. If you suffer from this malady, and I've just offended an entire group of miserably suffering innocents. I'm sorry. So, mostly one age group, mostly males. WTF?
