Where to go from here

Please share your experiences, successes, and failures in using non-drug therapies for RLS/WED (methods of relief that don't involve swallowing or injecting anything), including compression, heat, light, stretches, acupuncture, etc. Also under this heading, medical interventions that don't involve the administration of a medicine to the body (eg. varicose-vein operations, deep-brain stimulation).

Sleepnot,
Is your RLS in only your legs and primarily the lower legs?

I too have severe debilitating RLS below the knees. I had tried everything (and I really mean everything), couldn't take the drugs, and also like you, had no where else to go. I lived in your situation. The CP Relief Wand (you can Google) worked for me and it has worked for me 100% every night for a very long time now. This device is now in common use for RLS sufferers. There is no way to know in advance if it works for you unless you try it but they will arrange a trial unit for RLS sufferers, I believe.

Hi sleepnot,

I hope you don't mind me contacting you but could not ignore your post.

I am currently putting together a documentary about Restless legs Syndrome for broadcast in the UK. We are looking for RLS sufferers to share their story and in doing so help lift the lid on the so-called 'invisible illness'. RLS is often ignored in the UK and we are hoping with this documentary we can raise awareness and understanding.

Here is a link to our company website and RLS documentary advert:

If you would like to be involved please do get in contact.

Many thanks!
