DH has restless leg syndrome a few years ago he went to the Dr and he said to try Indian tonic water as it sometimes helps, so we got some and since then DH has always had a glass at night before bed and it worked great! Until last week, his legs are now fidgeting and he rocks back and forward all night making it impossible to get any sleep and I don't like waking him because he works long hours, I have tried moving and sleeping on the couch but I only get a few hours at the most and wake up all cramped up and in a lot of pain. I am running on around 6-8 hours sleep since last weekend and I am having trouble functioning. Does anyone have any suggestions on what he could do to stop.

I get it in a milder form.
I take magnesium tablets before bed & they work for me

Short term fix is Panadol or nuerofen

He already has magnesium for migraines in the morning maybe I should switch up his vitamins so he has it at night

Apply heat - hot water bottle works for me, or a hot bath work for me.

Does he exercise? It could be circulation issues. Does he snore? He may have low oxygen levels. Magnesium before bed is the only thing that helps me.

He exercises when he gets the chance but he goes to work 4:30 in the mornings and by the time he gets home late afternoon he is usually to stuffed. He doesn't snore, sleep talks sometimes though lol

With those hours, does he get enough sleep? My RLS is always worst when I'm tired

Can anyone tell me if the magnesium is ok when pregnant? I read this post because I *think* I have RLS. No diagnosis but my legs/feet get irritable every night and either keep me awake or wake me up. I'm surviving on about 4-5 hours of broken sleep a night and it's killing me.
What does provide a little relief for me *sometimes*:
Getting out of bed and walking around for a bit
Putting a heat pack in the bed and rest my feet on it
running my feet on a tennis ball
if i'm over heated - taking my feet out from under the covers.
On a really bad night, i've had up to 5 showers! My skin then gets dry! Can't win!
