No More RLS!

I have suffered with RLS for about 25 years now, a few things that I have found that helps ease the misrable sensations are a drastic change in temperature- like soaking in a warm bath or apply cold packs to the area but these slowly stopped working. I met a man not long ago, like to think he was sent from God, who told me one night when I was having a terrible attack of RLS who said that his grandfather use to have the same symptoms and he would tie a piece of yarn/string around his ankles fairly snug (but don't cut off circulation) and this would relieve him of his pain! I immediately got up and found some string & it worked. I couldn't believe how something so simple could do so much good, but thank you Lord, for the man and the string!

Interesting. I've used ace bandages and then to make it easier (my calves are what bothers me most) I got knee support things and just pull them over my calves at night. The compression seems to help most of the time.

I used to ask someone to stand on the back of my legs at night because I found that the pressure to either the muscle or nerves causes the unbearably annoying sesnation to cease temporaily or cease altogather if I had someone stand and walk back and forth (not with their full body weight). Since I have noone to do that for me recently I have tried tying my house coat belt/tie around my leg(s) and it has mysteriously and like magic helped to alleviate the discomfort enough so I can get to sleep. I have to wrap it tight, as tight as I can get it, then usually wake up at some point throughout night and take it off.
I am 38; this method is most likely not suitable for people who bruise easily or skin tears easily which occurs as you age.
