Curing my 2 decade case of achilles tendonitis cured my 2 decade case of restless leg syndrome. After trying many treatments for the achilles problem, what worked was Z-coil spring shoes (no financial connection whatsoever) daily for several months.
I found that a glass of orange juice gets rid of my restless legs. There is a large amount of potassium in orange juice. Potassium assists in muscle contraction and in maintaining fluid (water) and electrolyte balance in body cells. Potassium is also important in sending nerve impulses as well as releasing energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism.
Basically your body is starving for potassium so your muscles can work properly. When you run low on potassium you get restless legs.
i suffered from Restless Legs for years and by chance found a cure that works for me.
I started drinking TONIC WATER as i dont like tap water and after a few days noticed my restless legs had gone for the 1st time in years. I did a bit or research and discovered it was the QUININE in the tonic water that cured me. i suffered a bad case of restless legs with it in both legs and arms both through the day as well as at night time and as long as i drink at least one 500ml bottle of TONIC WATER per day it seems to work.
Calcium Lactate 6-9 a day from Standard Process or from a health food store
For some people, increasing your iron intake works. Also try a glass of Gaterade before you go to bed.
I've found that a single aspirin usually does the trick in calming restless legs -- usually within a 1/2 hour or so.
Neurofeedback cured me of restless leg syndrome. Go to a provider that is associated with a research group (such as EEG Spectrum). I did this once per week for 30 minutes for about 10 weeks.
