Don't do this when a car passenger

Here you can share your experiences with substances that are ingested, inhaled, or otherwise consumed for the purpose of relieving RLS/WED, other than prescription medications. For example, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, diet, kratom, and marijuana (for now) should be discussed here. Tell others of successes, failures, side effects, and any known research on these substances. [Posts on these subjects created prior to 2009 are in the Physical Treatments forum.]

Don't do this when a car passenger

Postby Yankiwi » Fri Feb 14, 2020 7:54 pm

With restless legs we will do almost anything to get relief. On occasion I've put my legs on the dashboard when I've been a passenger in a car. After seeing this x-ray of crushed legs and pelvis I will never do this again.
Check it out if you haven't seen it before.

Horrifying. I've never ever put my feet up on the dash but I guess there are those like yourself who do.
Thank you for posting this, it may make others think.
