I've had RLS on and off for years, getting worse as I get older. My GP prescribed Amitriptyline which really helps but makes me dopey the next day so I only use it when I don't work. Just found the BEST thing - DVT socks. I heard about wrapping the legs and tried my old DVT socks (from NHS). They WORK. Even if I have been asleep and have woken with RLS I put them on and PEACE. They fit tightly over my foot, calf and knee. This is my first blog ever, just want to help RLS sufferers. Hope it works for you.
