    My mums friend has this and she uses this foot thing that helps circulation. I think you can buy them from Harvey Norman she swears by it. I had it while I was pregnant and it was the most awful thing- I felt like cutting my legs off. My ob suggested magnesium and panadol. I found rubbing some voltarin on my legs helped also.

    Got some magnesium powder from the chemist tonight as I read that it might be more effective than the tablets. Smells gag worthy but I managed to drink it down! Let's see what happens

It's also great to spray on any sore mucsles sprains etc. it does sting a little on sensitive areas sometimes, but I find if I just put it on the tops of my feet it's fine. You can wipe it off after 20 mins too as it feels like sea salt water on your skin.
    If you google it you'll come up with a lot of places selling it and they will claim it can almost cure anything but I'm somewhat more skeptical than that... but it did eliminate RLS for me.

    Dammit. My restless legs are back now that I'm stimming. Must be similar hormones to when I was pregnant. I've barely slept in 3 nights. Will have to try some of @emski72's spray. I'd forgotten how torturous this is. It's like I have 1000 volts running through my legs.

    I used it for 2 nights and I seriously think I was worse than before! I started well by falling asleep more easily and staying asleep for 3-4 hours in a stretch - so that was pretty good!
    But once I woke up, I was wide awake, then my feet and legs started and just didn't stop! Maybe I should try the spray instead of the powder? That stuff tastes nasty!

    Yeah perhaps switch over to the oil spray - I've never done powder and when you said you bought that I thought, why would you do that to yourself?
    It does take a week or so to build up in your system so bear that in mind, but normally after a week things should be better.
