I have been having horrible, sleepless nights because my legs will not be still. My Dr gave me a prescription but I found out that my insurance will only pay for one medication dealing with RLS and with that medication there were serious side effects to the animals that they did studies on, so I am def. not going to use it. I have been trying warm showers, stretching my legs, pacing around our apartment, a heating pad, taking my iron and folic acid, etc......nothing helps! Does anyone have suggestions that I haven't been trying yet or that worked for them? I appreciate any and all! Thank you!

I have that too. My fiance has trouble sleeping because my legs don't stop moving. I have started swimming and exercising and it has helped a lot! I do lot of high cardio and it seems to settle my legs so that I can sleep.
