This works for me and i occasionally have rls quite bad. Its difficult to explain exactly what to do but i will try my best, If done right it works a treat. My hubby is a physio and a couple of years ago after my second child and the rls was jolting my legs (one at a time) quite badly, hubby tried something and now I have adapted it slightly to work everytime for me.

On which ever leg i get the annoying feeling on, i start on that leg. Using mainly my index finger and middle finger, add pressure to a specific area around my knee. If working on my left leg, apply pressure around the left knee using left hand fingers. The area to concentrate on is important! So move your fingers to the OUTSIDE of your knee where the fibia bone (rounded bone) sticks out, some of the area around the whole of this bone is where to work the pressure.

Hubby applied pressure inside the fibea as if heading towards the BACK OF YOUR KNEE BUT IF YOU SHIFT THAT PRESSURE DOWN SLIGHTLY (top of the bottom half of your leg area) this is often where I feel the annoying sensation coming through. In this place but also to the LEFT SIDE OF YOUR LEG ON THE FIBIA BONE and towards the front of your leg (still on the bone) is where i concentrate pressure for say 20 seconds and reapply pressure without taking my fingers off all around the two key areas I mentioned above in capitals for 20 seconds or so each. Do this for 2 or 3 minutes.

In my experience for this to work the best, you need to be able to find that really annoying feeling that you might get with RLS when you are applying pressure in these areas (the sicky feeling that the RLS is there, waiting to pounce. I dont know why but this area for me seems to pin point the rls. So once you find it, keep adding the pressure and hold your fingers and thumb even to that area and maybe rotate the pressure slightly now and then, the more the annoying feeling can be felt, the better its working. If the feeling is faint or not there or goes, re apply slightly, move the pressure somewhere else around that bone or feel around the area for the feeling and press hard for a few seconds again.

I ve tried to explain this the best way i can, it works everytime for me when i can feel that slight tugging feeling or a slight annoying throbbing feeling. Its almost as if im chasing the rls and by applying the pressure im diffusing it. If you do this for 2 mins on each leg you should have a good nights sleep, if you manage it for 3 or 4 minutes on each leg i can go without the rls for 4 or 5 days. My legs feels lovely after (nice and relaxed).

I hope it works for you as its a blessing for me.

I posted the above remedy a few days ago and now realise that i wrote fibia instead of FIBULA. This is a combination of not knowing anatomy and being partially deaf so i heard wrong when asked what the area is called. I hope this makes all the difference to anyone who wants to see if it works for them. Basically deep massage around the area and even if you dont feel the rls sensation it may still help relax your legs after you've spend a few minutes working the area around the FIBULA (sorry).


I find that pressure on and around the rls sight really helps me also.
