Restless leg syndrome



You could try magnesium which occasionally helps relieve muscle tension. See Is it okay to take magnesium? or see Valium

-Some of us have gained great relief from RLS by reducing our intake of salicylates. ~Julia

-I have recently had a coffee (it contains opioid antagonist) after a longer period of abstinence (15 days) and it made my legs hurt so bad and twitch. ~wrotec

-if I wake up enough to recognise that it's happening I've found a method that usually fixes it. I get up and walk on the spot with exaggerated arm and leg motions until my muscles are almost burning with fatigue. then I lie down, my limbs feel nice and heavy and no longer restless, and usually I can get to sleep. I even used to do this as a pre-emptive measure.

Some doctors prescribe Mirapex (pramipexole) for restless leg syndrome.

as the MP has progressed I'm finding I get restless limbs less often :) It even went away for a couple of months and now comes back sometimes, but less frequently. ~RichardM
