My remedy to restless legs

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, My name is Fred, i'm 74 years old and have had 3 heart attacks subsequently I am rather inactive now, ie: I dont do/get much exercise. I have suffered from 'restless legs' for some time now and have tried all suggested treatments including imported quinine. As none of these didnt have any great effect.

I have tried leg exercising (which seemed to help with circulation?)

I have now retrieved my old exercise bike from my shed and found that 10 minutes of riding for me very beneficial.

If you have access to an exercise bike or pedal bike may I recommend you try this for 10 minutes any time and before bed. I ride my bike for 5 minutes to warm up and 5 minutes of hard pedal.

I find it makes the muscles warm and takes the aches away.

Anyway it seems to work for me.
