Good morning everyone , especially all of you who are interested in history. I am curious to know if any of you know how your parents and grandparents coped with RLS in the days when no medication was available. How did they try to sooth the pain/discomfort? Did they go mad by sleep deprivation? Did they go to the doctor and if so, what did he recommend/prescribe? Or was their life so difficult by other circumstances that RLS was only a secondary problem? I just wonder, because I think I would go mad or suicidal without medication.
