Does anyone here besides me suffer from RLS? If so, and you've found any kind of relief from it, please post what you did here!

Jim, the restless leg is probably trying to distract you from the itchy arch?!

Sorry you go through this, Jim.
The Missus suffers from it, too.
She just rides it out as best as she can.
It can be Hell, for both of us.

I involuntarily "kick" my legs in my sleep. Quite violently too, to the point I get leg cramps. Sometimes it wakes me up. Not sure if this is the same thing though.

This past Christmas, a friend of mine(Who's a retired doctor), as one of my presents, gave me a container of something called Magnilife Relaxing Leg Cream. A few weeks later, I e-mailed him to tell him that the night before, my RLS was particularly bad, so I got up, and took a huge tablespoon of that that cream, and that it tasted like SHIT, and did NOTHING for my RLS! He e-mailed me back and said, "Ummm.... aren't you suppose to RUB that stuff ON your legs?" "Mr. Mensa" thought I was SERIOUS! big grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grin
FYI... I haven't used that stuff at all... the reviews I've read online are somewhat mixed, but most people say the stuff does NOTHING for RLS.

Oh... back in November I spent Thanksgiving week down at my beloved Topsail. While there, I slept like a BABY... NO RLS at all, and it was all thanks to that VERY FIRM MATTRESS that I slept on at the motel. I wish I could afford to get a very firm mattress, but those things cost a small fortune!

Gee, Jim, I thought you were trying to find out how many of us like Robert Louis Stevenson! (Favorite film and film score based on an "RLS" story -- Val Lewton's "The Body Snatcher," starring Henry Danielle, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, terrific classic score by Roy Webb.)

Sorry I can't help you on the restless leg syndrome. I've heard of it but don't know anybody who has it, or what they do about it.

There are medications such as Mirapex that are advertised as treatments for RLS. But the side effects may be worse than the condition. I have to laugh at many drug commercials. Most of the run time is devoted to side effects warnings. The Mirapex one is sort of mind boggling.

I was watching TV with a senior friend of mine, and I mentioned the same thing to her. The first 10 seconds, the voiceover praises the drug's effectiveness, followed by THREE MINUTES OF WARNINGS AND SIDE EFFECTS! I actually saw a drug commercial where the voiceover said, "This shit will KILL YOU! SERIOUSLY! DON'T TAKE THIS STUFF! IT'S DEATH IN A BOTTLE!" big grinbig grinbig grin
