5 Comments for the Restless Leg Syndrome Home Remedy


My daughters used to get growing pains quite a bit and I found that rubbing mentholatum (Vicks) on their legs helped. One night when I got a particularly bad case of RLS I thought why not? It has helped most of the time for me since then. I just rub a bit on where it is affecting me (usually the top of my feet and lower legs) It dosen't have to be slathered on. Just a little bit. The soap under the sheets did help me too but eventually I became immune to it. Might try it again. Has anyone ever tried pickle juice?

This is similar to what has helped me which is applying Bengay to my thighs. It sort of numbs them enough to buy me the time to fall asleep.


I have had restless leg for years, my dad does too. The only thing that I have found to help it besides taking pain pills it to take multivitamins at night. I would wake up with it and take 3 of my children's chewable vitamins and it seemed like it would go away within 30 min. Make sure it is a multi that has all the minerals in it expecially iron.


Oh my gosh. I don't have vix so I tried carmax (im desperate lol) instantly took my RLS away! I just hope it stays gone.


Pickle juice? Internally or externally??


HI. I have had RLS since I was pregnant at 16. I am now 62. I take requip but it has stopped working. I did try the pickle juice three times and it did not work for me. I have written all the suggestions down and am going to the store today. I won't take the requip again and will start trying all of the suggestions until I find one that works. Hot baths helped for years but then they stopped. My husband said I kick and toss and turn the whole time I am sleeping. I will repost if I find anything that helps. Good luck to you all!!
