i HAVE SUCCESSFULLY RELIVED MYSELF OF RLS...I'M 19 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH THE SYNDROME SINCE i WAS 8 PLEASE PLEASE LISTEN TO MY WORDS OF ADVICE AND SPREAD THEM..THIS IS A COMPLETLEY MEDICINE FREE REMEDY AND VERY CHEAP PLEASE LISTEN
-First off I'm going to tell you all that stress is a major issue with your leg problems...the more stress you have (particularly in women since the body tends to store most built up stress in the legs) the harder it is for your legs and arms to relax...
If your like me both your legs and arms twitch..
For awhile I was on mirapex (if your problem is really very servere perhaps you shouldnt drop your medication instantly but instead slowly ease off of it)
I began to hate taking the medication and instead first started off takin Iron and Calcium supplements along with Vitamin B12 and B2...just to feed my body the nutrients it really needed...
I also found a (expensive) drink called Monavie and when I drank it I noticed that since it had so many fruits (over 30) in it that I got alot of what my body was missing....that and the supplements helped a good amount in preparing my body to be able to handle this problem....
HOWEVER as much nutrients as you give your body you have to be confident yourself that you are willing to get over this disease and you are willing to do whatever it takes to do it....
Half the time alot of diseases are triggered or strengthened by the idea of thought (I'm not going to get philisophical on you just try what I say or don't I dont care)
I began meditation and started about 10 minutes in the morning and before I went to bed..I can also recommend looking online for crystals and stones that induce sleep as I sleep with one everynight and I dont even get enough time to worry about my legs because I am asleep.
The meditation is good not only for your mind but your body and soul..it relaxes you and calms your mind and body down...10 minutes can do wonders
I also began doing stretches in the moring and night...going for routine workout stretches to yoga stretches every morning....10 minutes (thats nothing)
After awhile I went without my medication and when I still had problems I used Aroma Therapy..go to Bed Bath& Beyond they have sleep lotions and fragences which work awesome and smeel good as hell.
BUT (AND PLEASE TAKE MY FOLLOWING WORDS CAREFULLY)
All of this seemed small in comparison to what I have to say next...I'm not going to go into full detail about it,you can look it up on the internet and if you choose not to believe me fine, but if your having this problem with your legs why wouldnt you try anything?
Anyways going further with my meditation I began to get into a healing called Reiki (or Usui Reiki)
look it up I'm not going to say much excpet that anyone can learn this if taught from a proper teacher..and no it is not as crazy as it sounds...
It essentially allows me to heal my legs and arms whenever they are tense..I can feel it happening I swear it works..it's not voodoo or anything and Reiki has SOO many more benefits trust me people..I do not have any more problems with my legs and arms...and its all natural
SO IF YOU ARE STILL SUFFEREING WITH THIS PROBLEM PLEASE I GUARENTEE MY FOLLOWING METHODS WILL HELP YOU
NO LONGER DO I DREAD GOING TO SLEEP JUST TAKE EVERYTHING I SAY SERIOUSLY AND PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW WITH THIS PROBLEM ABOUT THIS

As my dad always said when I had cramps in my legs.. 'Eat a banana!!'
I have suffered from RLS for 10 years. I have always self medicated. RLS was a big challenge for me but I have found something that really works for me. I squat next to my bed (keeping your heels off the ground) for about 5 to 10 minutes. Your legs will feel very tired like they have fallen asleep on you. But the RLS goes away long enough to go to sleep. I know this method sound crazy but give it a try.
I've had RLS for many years, and in approx. the last couple of years, I've noticed that whenever I get it, it seems that my legs are slightly cold. If I rub my shins, or any part of my legs that feels cold, and warm them up, the symptoms go right away.
I enquired of my Naturopath and he recommended IODORAL (high potency iodine/potassium Iodide supplement)12.5 mg. I started with two tablets a day and after one week I had no restless leg syndrome. I am now reducing the dosage to one a day or every other day before bed and I am still fine. I am so thankful to find this cure after a few years with this problem. I hope this will help other people to sleep peacefully and also their significant other.
Exercising has work very well for me. I got the idea of really ramping up my routine at movemylegs com which is a RLS specific forum
I know it sounds strange, but I stopped my RLS with a bar of soap placed under the sheets at the foot of the bed.
Jumping on a trampoline for as little as 10 seconds has stopped my RLS symptoms 100% of the time for the past 6 years!! There are little 'jogger' trampolines (called 'mini-tramps') for only about $40 new (or $15 used) - the great thing being that they can be used indoors regardless of the time or weather! There's a super small one, only 30' wide, available called 'The Bullet' (from JumpKing). I am happy to have a a 15' trampoline at my backdoor (walk from trailer hallway directly onto trampoline - wonderful), which cost only $180. I highly recommend this for RLS, poor circulation, depression, and delightful suntanning. Hope this helps someone!!
After 20 years of insomnia misery with RLS and after trying every supplement under the sun, I tried a cup of warm Malt Ovaltine before bed and it really works for me. I sometimes still wake up about 2 am and nip restlessness in the bud with another small snack, maybe 6 oz milk & 1 T peanut butter. This routine has truly changed my life. (I had always believed it was unhealthy to eat after dinner. Wrong!!)
I use apple cider vinegar. Just rub it on your legs. It works for me.
