Anyone have RLS ? Is there anything that helps you other than prescription meds?

  • Try magnesium before bed; RLS is believed to occur as a result of a magnesium deficiency.

  • My husband has it.. He says that sitting in the warm shower with the shower head raining down on his legs helps.. He also often sleeps in a recliner... For some reason it helps him. Good luck!

  • I only get it in one leg and only once in a while. I am not on any meds and it drives me nuts.

  • RLS is often caused by mineral deficiencies. My son was caused by low iron. Now he takes an iron supplement.
