I know we are all different and something's work for others and not us. I have the creepy crawly (no pain) kind of RLS. Have it for many many years (now 70 yrs old). Usually starts around 7:00 pm while warching tv. Also bad at night while trying to sleep until about 4:00 am. One night while wrapping my legs with ace bandages and looking like a mummy, i realized that compression stockings might work. I wear medical grade compression stockings ( although you can try to start off with normal support stockings or pantyhose). It somehow stops the NEED to move. Seems to satisfy that itch to move. No meds, no messing with diet. Works for me and many others as responses received on other RLS websites under the No Meds category.
One survey actually had it is the the most successful tx. So again, we are all different, some cant stand anything touching their legs. You got nothing to lose. Try it.
I will rarely get it in my arms, and tried arm compression sleeves.
Sometimes it goes up into my groin and then i have problem applying compression, have tried a tight long leg panty girdle and it helps.
Just my two cents from an american who found a simple solution that has helped many. If you try it, report back how it worked or didn't. I don't get to this site often but will try to help if needed.
