Do you suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome? If so, what are some things you do for relief?


I have had achy legs every since I was little, though it was only recently that I've self-diagnosed myself with restless legs. Sometimes at night, I lay on my stomach and kick my legs. The vibration relieves that pain in my legs. I do it in my sleep and often don't even know I'm doing it until someone wakes me up because the constant "thump, thump, thumping" has woken them up! What is your experience with RLS?

    I've heard that salt soaks works wonders, especially Epsom salt... I'll give it a try!

    I'm glad you said this. Aspartame is bad on so many levels and it really affects my bipolar symptoms. Also, RLS can flare up if you're a little dehydrated, so make sure to drink plenty of water during the day.
