Restless Leg Syndrome

Does anyone get restless leg syndrome? I do but I’ve found a way to combat it. I know this is going to sound crazy but it works and that’s all I care about.

Someone told me about it, and I thought what do I have to lose by trying. Restless leg syndrome that’s what.

If you take any old bar of soap and put it under your sheets at the foot of your bed, it will stop RLS. I kid you not.

I always have that bar of soap now. When Mr. CrankyPants got sick recently, I had to move to another room/bed for a couple of weeks. I totally forgot about my soap and that I had RLS. Within 3 nights sleeping in that bed without the soap, the RLS came roaring back with a vengeance. It didn’t take me long to get that soap. It took about 2 nights with the soap back at the foot of my bed and the RLS is completely gone again.

I’m so thrilled because it’s something so cheap and easy that keeps me off yet another medication. I don’t believe it’s somatic but even if it were, and it works who cares. It works! I hope it can help someone else like it has me. If it does, let me know! I’d love to hear about it.

Warm weather & Sunny Days,

  1. I get RLS now and then. Usually when I’m up to no good and there’s a cop around.

    Actually I do find it hard to keep my legs still at night, so maybe I’ll try your trick. Does it have to be a whole bar, or can it be half-used? Do you have to unwrap the soap? That can make things a bit slimy on the sheets. How about a bottle of shampoo, will that work? What if you just wash your legs real good, and don’t rinse the soap off?

    Anyway, thanks for the tip. And just think, this is also a good way to wake up with clean-smelling feet every morning.

    1. Ahaha! It can be any bar. I don’t unwrap mine. I’m guessing a half bar would work. You could wash your legs but I haven’t found that alone will help. lol No shampoo although I haven’t tried. The clean smelling feet is a a bonus! Let me know if it helps!
