oh wow. i don't know if this is what you are referring to but i had a problem some years ago with my hi hat foot .it would just start shaking sometimes and it would freak me out.there was a drummer by the name of samari celestial from sun ra. told me to get a seat with a back on it and see a chiropractor. long story short i got an adjustment and never happened again.

Yeah, that happens to me sometimes, usually right before bed, though. Never happened on a gig........


I've seen the commercials for the RLS medication, but I figure it would just make me drowsy, and I'm pretty skeptical of pharmaceutical companies anyhow.
