I've been having trouble with RLS for years (I describe the feeling as similar to the feeling of having your arm twisted behind your back wrong but deep in your legs). Now I've started putting a small pillow (contour pillow) between my legs at night and it seems to make a big difference. Maybe it's the little bit of tension from my legs to keep the pillow there, maybe it's the different position it puts my knees, hips, legs, etc. in - I don't know but it's working. I felt the RLS start to creep in the other night so I grabbed my pillow, slipped it between my knees and didn't move - I should have been miserable in minutes but instead the sensation went away!
