Re: Restless Leg! need help!
It is depending on the type of RL.!

When it is really manifest and Diagnosed by a Med
and you are really in a bad Situation because of it
i would have a look for a atypical Opioid like Tramadol
in a low Dosage, research it!

Tramadol is not really a Morphine-Type Drug but it is still
Habit forming!!!

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
I take Sifrol.I have M.S,which appears to go hand in hand with restless leg.I started to get RL 6 months before i was diagnosed with M.S.The only time i havent suffered with R.L in the 14 years i have had M.S is when i was giving steroidal treatment.

Prior to the problem being treated through medication,my neurologist informed me that the majority of R.L sufferers went insane.

My sympathies go out to R.L sufferers,its terrible.

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
Rls sucks, especially for partners of those with rls. That crap gets annoying. My fiance literally rolled over to his stomach and put his bare foot in my face at 2am once. I had to use all my effort to remove his foot from near my face, and he still thinks it isnt cause for concern. the leg shaking is most annoying though--shakes the whole bed. It doesnt help that i am easily annoyed. I cant see how he gets enough sleep with the leg movements waking him up. And when he snores/stops breathing, the rls is worse during and just after (kicking and leg shaking, probly lacking oxygen). I swear it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21738912


I know what you mean, I've annoyed my previous and current girlfriend wkth it sooo much. I have an extreem case, so I'm usually ready to take a saw to it after nights of not sleeping, I can only imagine how crappy that is for her. It sucks, I know for some it is just annoying creepy feeling in their leg, but it has evolved for me, into a very painful feeling into my arms and leg at the same time. I haven't tried magnesium, I'm going to try that. Thanks for all the advice. You guys are seriously helpful here.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4421057


it is so weird for him because he doesnt get any accompanying feeling that he is aware of even when he is awake. Basically it is subconscious--even when he is awake, he wont be aware of shaking the bed. I have to point it out when he is awake. O.o

He said he is taking his vitamins and it has been less noticeable. I get pretty medicated at night so once i go to bed, the movements dont bother me. I tend to stay up later than him though.

Normal instance when he is asleep: snore--> stop breathing --> leg shaking or change positions/move legs --> Half of these lead to him waking up and using the bathroom. even that seems strange but with health insurance, he still isnt alarmed at the times he uses the bathroom.

Sleepwise, there is a hormone released when you get tired that keeps your bladder from having to go, and it remains effective the whole night for most people. I think the rls and sleep apnea is so bad that the awake time messes up this specific hormone, but it could be other health concerns too. He goes to the bathroom up to four times during his six to eight hours of sleep.

Luckily i only really get bothered by the movements before i go to bed. Still, a support group for significant others would be great xD.

Warm Bath and take MAGNESIUM!
Good quality magnesium at bedtime.
Or use magnesium oil, even better.
Among the most common causes of RLS is a magnesium deficiency.

 Quoting: Lilac.Nights


^^^^^THIS

Aspirin and Tylenol have serious complications that can be dangerous if used a lot, magnesium has no side effects, any excess is excreted in the urine.

Buy some Epsom Salts at the grocery store and take a warm soak in the tub, magnesium and magnesium oil are pretty inexpensive.

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
A lot told me, an herb horsechestnut worked for them.

I would also consider, arginine and natural vitamin E.

The herb, and the E, increases circulation. The arginine, dilates your blood vessels, which also makes the blood flow more easy.

As someone also mentioned, magnesium, to relax the muscle.

What I find helpful, is a long warm / hot bath, prior to sleeping. This greatly relaxes the entire body, and mind.

Another study from the Journal "Sleep" had similar results. The study was titled "Magnesium Therapy for Periodic Leg Movements (PLMS) - Related Insomnia and Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): An Open Pilot Study". Magnesium was administered orally in the evening over a period of 4-6 weeks. Following magnesium treatment, periodic leg movements associated with arousals decreased significantly. In the 1998 study, the researchers concluded:

"Our study indicates that magnesium treatment may be a useful alternative therapy in patients with mild or moderate RLS-or PLMS-related insomnia."


According to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota, “Magnesium plays a key role in the body's chemistry that regulates sleep. This may be why persons with long-term lack of sleep, or abnormal brain waves during deep sleep, often have low magnesium in their blood….Magnesium treatment increased deep sleep and improved brain waves during sleep in 12 elderly subjects. Magnesium treatment also decreased time to fall asleep and improved sleep quality of 11 alcoholic patients who often have a low magnesium status.”

The Magnesium Miracle [Paperback]
Carolyn Dean (Author)
4.6 out of 5 stars See all reviews

"After reading this book, along with also having first-hand knowledge about the importance of magnesium, which indeed is a "miracle," I cannot understand why more information is not coming forward on this most important nutrient, the missing link in regaining your health.

Back last winter, my wife became concerned when I had difficulty getting out of a chair, was having horrible hip pain and back pain. She researched, then started growing concerned that maybe I was showing early signs of Parkinson's.

Needless to say, the research turned up several important things, but most importantly, magnesium deficiency seemed to be a number one factor causing many illnesses.

Around this time frame, we found out about magnesium w/SRT (magnesium malate; malic acid), and it literally changed our lives overnight. That magnesium w/SRT is the one that was definitely a magnesium miracle for us. Then, around this same point in time, just about the same time we found magnesium w/SRT, we also found out about Dr. Carolyn Dean's book, and this has been such a blessing.

You can tell others how it changed you overnight, but if you're deficient, it really will, and most people are deficient in magnesium. This book is so well written, so comprehensive in revealing the importance of the benefits of magnesium and just what a magnesium deficiency causes.

This book is not only written for health-care professionals, but it's also for laypeople such as my wife and I. This book is for everyone. It's for people with depression, chest pain, migraines, muscle spasms, nerve problems, asthma, leg cramps, fatigue, hypertension, insomnia, and the list goes on and on.

For the first time in over 20 years, my wife is free of back pain and horrible muscle spasms in her back. I can now get up from a chair normally, walk, do all the things that I need to do without back and hip pain."

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
From experience

Himalayan Salt

Specifically making a sole

[link to www.youtube.com]

but eating it in all kinds of things is good for you..once you have tasted this to what you have thought is salt you will understand why natural salt was desired so much in the past.. This was commonly called King Salt..

It helps with addictions and getting over the substances you were taking too..

I know you can get it online rather easy..
and Trader Joes and most healthfood stores carry it..

I was raised on this and where I get mine from but you can choose many places..

[link to www.saltcave.us]

do a google search for himilayan salt benefits and you will see why table salt is evil..

Living food.

The sole has helped a number of people I know. I use is everyday and I can attest to the restless leg going away.. the minerals in the salt are like those listed in previous replies..

remember a glass jar and do not use a metal spoon when you are taking a teaspoon to water each morning.. metal changes the properties... use a wooden or medicine dropper, plastic or I use a glass spoon used for won ton soup bowls...

Good luck and I hope you find peace..
Let us know what ended up working for you..
Take Care

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
I have dealt with this for years, it is by far the worst part of W.D.'s for me. I get it In my arms so bad i punch them...and do push ups ..everything u can think of.
Its like as soon as you start to get tired this immense energy hits your arms.

What works for me, as weird as it sounds is i put head phones on with coast to coast AM or an interview something kind of monotone and I concentrate on it as much as i can and it actually relieves the RLS and allows me to fall back asleep. How and why I do not know but I know it works for me.

Try it for you and maybe it will help as well.
I am actually going through this right now unfortunately :(

Good Luck my friend

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
Interesting..I had just read your title and before I read anything, I was going to ask you if you use/used Xanax...

then I read your op...

I have noticed with my clients who have RLS, the common factor I have found in all was xanax...and they were not abusers of it..
they also did not have RLS prior to using xanax

just sayin...I would stay away from that shit, for those of you who have never taken it..don't

trazodone, dude. I hate recommending pharmaceuticals but if you don't have the choice. That's what I used to take in my past junkie life and doctors prescribe it too for restless legs. Or magnesium I think.

Magnesium taken with fat (butter/ghee). Because fat helps absorb magnesium. Or you can eat nuts and seed which all have a lot of magnesium and fat in them.

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
a drug called pramipexole is now the drug of choice in UK

but i would look at the tred on your shoes - if you wear down the outer aspect at the heel , you are a pronator

this can put tension through the muscles while you are on your feet and at night when you lie down , they spasm and jerk , trying to settle themselves

you can get insoles for pronators off amazon for £10

try them for a few weeks - if this is the cause , you should notice a difference straight away


good luck

I've used Lyrica periodically. Wouldn't recommend long term use but you can take it as needed and you will have zero rls and you will sleep like you did when you were a kid.

Do your research. It is being used for people with fibromyalgia. It eliminates neurotic type pain and is excellent for anyone coming off opiates. Lyrica and Tramadol are the best recipe for opiate withdrawal being used in rehab facilities.

Good luck. Rls is awful.

Re: Restless Leg! need help!
Absolute 100 percent cure for restless legs is right here. I suffered from it for years. I suffered from it so terribly, in fact, that the resulting insomnia would keep me awake sometimes for over one week...until my body crashed. My muscles would cramp and ache all throughout the day as a result.

I switched to an almost all raw diet. NOTHING but fresh fruits, vegetables and water. Some things were cooked...beans and rice, for instance. No dairy. No gluten.

What's causing your restless legs is the preservative-laden food that you're consuming.

Within 5 days, symptoms on my part were completely gone and I've never even had a tingle since. In addition, I sleep soundly and deeply and fall asleep within 5 minutes of my head hitting the pillow. Because of the deep and healthy sleep, I only need about 5 hours worth to function optimally during the day.

A break from the diet from time to time won't hurt you.

I PROMISE YOU IF YOU CAN MAINTAIN THIS WAY OF EATING YOU WILL BE CURED.
