    You drink? Maybe a few shots before bed...I got a right hand that tingles and wakes me up if its not in a brace. I forgot my brace on a camping trip and couldn't sleep the first night so the second we killed an 18 pack of Oly between 2 guys and I did sleep that night.

      Kitty has had it. That's one reason she just had surgery on both her legs. The veins were not working properly. They go in with a heat element and burn the main vein that's not working and make it collapse. Then blood is rerouted to other healthy veins. So far, she's showing improvement.

      I only get it in the evenings. At the end of the day when I sit down to relax or go to bed. Its very uncomfortable. Aching pain in my upper leg or some times both. I feel like I have to keep my leg or legs moving. Hard to explain but that's what my doctor says I have & the med they have me on works. I don't want to miss taking them. lol

      Try magnesium oxide. I use it for nerve pain and restless legs and it works great.

      EDIT: oxide, not citrate.

      Most stores (drug, grocery etc. ) with a good stocked vitamin selection should have it. Best thing is that if you take too much, it will just make you crap a little more.

      She started using it on the suggestion of her doctor (really sharp doc too) and it helped her so I started using it and it helped me a lot. Everyone with the same issue that we've suggested it to has said it helps.

      My Aunt had that and her Dr. told her to have a shot of whiskey or a glass of wine before she went to bed. She said it helped.

      A banana every other day, and
      at least a liter of milk every day.
      Yeah that's part of why I'm 213 to 220/5ft9, depending on ....... when I weigh myself,lol.
      Another part is the liter of pop, the half-liter of unsweetened pure California OJ., and/but the liter or two of distilled water doesn't seem to stick,lol. Well that's debatable cuz when I take off my socks at night, I can see the water slightly dammed up where the elastic was. My wife calls it edema. I say it's cuz all the salt she puts in my food. Ok that's not true anymore. She don't cook and I don't shake; so it must be the stinking take-out.....

      Side effects?
      Gambling and sex addiction.

      How the heck does that happen? Is the cure worth the side effects?
      Yeah, I lost my house and my genitals look like they have been through a meat grinder but my legs are better now.

      On and off and it’s off now thank the Lord!
      The things I did to help were to basically have a work out on the legs only before bed. Stretching the muscles, work legs out, re stretch them and get to bed. This normally took care of 99% of the leg jumping. Though it is a PIA when your whooped from the day.

      Now, once a get a jump or two, I just get up and stretch the legs. Happened last night in fact. I just stretched for a few minutes and laid back down with only two more leg jumpings.

      I used to get it more than now - amazing how annoying it is...best thing to do for me is go to bed...gone when I wake up, but nothing else helps much when it starts - I think my pop used to take diazepam (aka valium) for it - I remember thinking it was funny when he got it...karma's a bitch

      I used to have it pretty bad when I was a kid all the way into my 30's.

      I pretty much willed myself to stop, and the less I did, the less I needed to do it.

      I do still sometimes have leg position issues while sleeping.


      Isn't magnesium citrate a fairly strong laxative?

      No fun taking that expecting a different result.

      Had it my whole life( I'm 71) When I was younger I would use a method where I would lie there and concentrate on relaxing my feet 1st, then up to my knees next after that I would usually fall asleep. It doesn't work for me any more so I just take Trazadone and a muscle Relaxer an hour before bedtime and sleep pretty good now.
