Thanks Becat, I used your link and it took me to the main RLS Rebel page, but when I clicked onto the link on this page for RLS Rebel Website, the link with the little 'cap' beside it, all I get is 'page has expired'. No luck at all !
Is there anything else I can try? Ta, Betty

Tho wondered how I would deal with this and where I would get a bucket in a hotel when I go on hols in a few weeks to Canada... don't want to give a crazy view of the...

I found Requip 2mg good for a couple of weeks. Now still not so bad, but would have some difficult nights. Tried biting off a little piece of the tablet at about 8.30 pm (about a third of a pill), then at 10.30pm taking the rest together with 300mg magnesium for burning feet. Don't know if the magne...

Oh please no... Requip is working for me at present, let's not have weight gain as well, cos I could do with losing 7 lbs for a wedding in 4 weeks!!!

Hi there, yeah I lie on my tummy with knees bent and legs in the air, feet wiggling, to get some relief, (sometimes). or to make it thru to the end of a movie, obviously when at home!! Not a pretty sight at aged 57 and kinda overweight. A common phrase in our house is my husband saying 'legs away ag...

Hi, I only joined a week or so ago, and certainly was at first like you rather alarmed to see how many people continue to just try and cope with symptoms year after year. I suppose I was hoping to find the equivalent of the Holy Grail or some such !! I wondered would it be more depressing to continu...

Just realised that when listing symptoms, I didn't mention the burning feet. When reading other postings I read about magnesium and will certainly be trying this first trip I make to the stores. Hopefully it will save me filling a bucket with really cold water in the middle of the night! I am findin...

Hi, just read these posts about magnesium and will certainly try it for burning feet. Only other thing I do is a bucket of really cold water for 10 minutes - I find this cools things off for a couple of hours. Thanks, Betty
