restiffic?

Post by dlafalce »

Hello , I have been looking into a relatively new product called Restiffic. They are foot wraps that are supposed to help calm symptoms of RLS. Their website shows that they have one success. I was wondering if anyone had tried them and what the results were.

At least two people - I think - have posted here about it. Often people come only when they need help or to share and then do not check in regularly, so you may not get a reply from them.

If you use the search box - upper right on your screen - you can search on it and see all the posts that have been made and see what they said.

I tried Restiffic. It did not work for me. I was able to return it for a full refund. Hope it works for you.

Jimmy - you tried, and now you know. You will no longer wonder --- if ?
And you were able to do so in the knowledge of a full refund.

Hello, Just wanted to post an update. I received the Restiffic foot wraps and gave them a try for about a week. Unfortunately they did not work for me either. Going to return them to the company for a refund. On the plus side I did discover that rolling a tennis ball on the bottom of my feet relieves some the feelings for me so I have another coping mechanism.

So sorry it didn't work. But, as you said, anything that helps find another coping strategy is a good thing! And, what a great company that will take it back!

My doctor gave me a free set. Going to wear them tonight. They seem difficult to put on. They seem ridiculous to me.

I took them off after 2 hours. Feet hurt. I don't think they will do anything. Glad I did not pay for them.
