Hi all, I am actually the wife to a RLS sufferer. He doesn't have the time to go on community support sites so I do it for him, cuz I care and know how frustrated he gets. If you live with someone with RLS you feel like you suffer along with them. I've only experienced restless legs a few times and that was enough to become completely sympathetic to this debilitating condition!!
After reading some of the things on this site and reading about Restiffic-the foot wrap, I am going to try using a electronic back massager on the bottom of his feet tonight and see if that brings any relief. I have a feeling it just might. I'll let you know. He said the best thing he ever experienced for his RLS was when he was in the hospital a couple years ago for surgery and they put these leg wraps on him and they had this big motor that hung on the end of the bed and the wraps would constrict and put pressure on his legs at certain intervals. He said his legs never felt so good and no problem with RLS. I wish we could have that at home!!
