I’ve had RLS for more than 10 years. For years when I would lay down at night to sleep I often would have spasms running down both my legs into my toes causing them to curl, every 30 - 45 seconds. My RLS was so bad that the spasms would wake me up if I was asleep. The only way to relieve the spasms was for me to take a brisk 30 minute walk (in cold and warm weather I had to go walking in the middle of the night). Three years ago a friend who had serious muscle problems in his leg was directed by his doctor to take some vitamins along with his prescribed meds to help fight muscle spasms. Those vitamins were Calcium Magnesium and Zinc. My friend suggested I try them. I went to Walmart, purchased a $7.00 bottle of 250 pills and have been happy ever since. Both vitamins are combined into one pill. The name on the bottle is Calcium Magnesium and Zinc (Bone Health). I took the suggested daily dosage of 3 pills and within 1 week my RLS stopped. I know this is the exact substance that cures my RLS because over the years of taking the vitamins I have discovered that I can skip a few weeks of taking the pills before my RLS starts to come back. At that point I resume taking the vitamins and the RLS goes away the next night and stays away until I again have a gap in taking the vitamins. Since my dietary habits are poor, I feel good in taking a vitamin that also cures my RLS. Happy – Happy – Happy!
