Re: Vick's!!! <3 <3 <3

o badnights Im sorry. I really had hoped my post about Vicks would help. I use it every other night/ every third night. For me, it doesnt completely eradicate the symptoms, but VIcks on the soles of my feet makes a huge difference. I even leave my feet wrapped up in the Vicks/plastic shopping bad ov...

Re: Vick's!!! <3 <3 <3

Ok my dears. This Vick's Trick seems to work best for me when used every other day. I use the plastic bags mainly because it's neater and cleaner; rather than trying to wash socks that have Vicks all over the inside! I'll not lie, I do still get some RLS prickling and tingling, and a little jerking....

Re: Vick's!!! <3 <3 <3

There was some RLS symptoms firing today. I have not had the chance to check with a pharmacist to check and see if some people might have skin allergies to Vicks, but I will follow up on that soon. I hear that the menthol in Vicks does get absorbed in the skin, so Ill check with pharmacist on any ot...

Vick's!!! <3 <3 <3

Ok All. I heard not long ago that rubbing Vicks on the soles of your feet helps with dry cracked skin. I tried this last night. I smeared about a tablespoon of Vicks Menthol VapoRub on the bottoms of my feet, from toe tips to heels. Then I wrapped my feet in plastic shopping bags, and put my feet up...

Re: Meds Me Mum bought me

Tried the Hyland's last night, all. I could tell by 1pm or so that my legs were going to give me trouble. I took the Hyland's med at 4:30 pm or so. There was some mild relief. I can see that for many, the relief may be negligible. If it were a bad RLS episode for me, the Hyland's wouldn't have touch...

Re: Meds Me Mum bought me

I haven't tried it yet but if jerking and twitching and pain gets aggravating enough I will. As reported, I cut back on coffee and that helped a lot. Also been sticking to Valerian and Melatonin for sleep. Haven't had to pull out the cooking pot for a while to crack the legs, which most would say is...

Meds Me Mum bought me

Hi all. Ok, doesn't Restless Leg (I call it Resltess BODY) come to interfere with every aspect of life. I haven't worked in years, but the government denied me help tho I use a cooking pot to beat my own legs black and blue. Of course my family members watch this and hate the suffering. My Mum just ...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

Ok, Medicine question here; so perhaps not the correct portion of the Sounding Board but here goes: My Mom's told me of a cream that's called 'MagniLife.' In the states, you can get it at Walgreen's or WalMart etc etc. Has anyone herd of this or tired it? Does anyone know what's in it? -Thanks all -...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

True WildFlower, I never know from day to day either if my RLS will be active or not. Hadn't slept well in days - took a WELCOME nap this afternoon and sure enough, a bit of RLS jerked me awake ....

Re: New to Site; hello to all

Thanks Badnights. I think carbs and sugar especially gets me going. Hard for me to cut sugar and carbs completely out of my diet. Will try anything I can tho. The other side of the equation is, of course, finances. I haven't been working, so is hard to get fresh fruit and veg. It'll be a long walk f...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

Bad string of nights, my Dears; I'm sorry to say. Easing back on the coffee and diphens really seemed to be helping me. Been a stressful few days - after fighting for years, I got my tax refund from my state for the last two years. That's GOOD. I've been camping out in my church, and it also means I...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

A much better night with both the RLS and Insomnia everyone. I do believe cutting out caffeine, diphenhydramines, and sugar is helping. Got good rest last night. Hope everyone else's RLS is calm and soothed - Restless

Re: New to Site; hello to all

God. Completely fried here, people. Took 8 Valerian and Melatonin last night at 7pm. Went to bed a bit after Nine, and fell into a doze. Drifted in and out of rest for a few hours, with some RLS jumping and jerking. At midnight I finally just got up. Made coffee, which I had been doing good to avoid...
