RESTLESS LEG CURE? IT WORKS FOR ME!

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi there Folks. If I said that I’d been diagnosed as having restless legs about 10 years ago you’ll have a fair idea of what I’ve gone through. There have been times when I’d gladly have chopped them off just that I could get to sleep, not to mention the distress caused by my legs keeping my partner awake. It was really nice to hear the doctor diagnose the condition, stating that it was well enough documented but that there was no cure!!!

Since then I’ve tried and looked and again complained to a different doctor these 10 years down the line to be told there still is no cure. In fact, she prescribed Amitriptyline! Not sure it stops the twitching legs but it certainly turns me into a Zombie!

I’ve read that it can be an iron deficiency!

I’ve read that Calcium / Magnesium can be a preventative to it.

I’ve read that Dopamine is sometimes prescribed!?

I’ve read that strong pain killers might help.

I’ve read that something like Diazepam might help!

Nope…!!!

I take multivitamins etc and I certainly have no iron deficiency. Yes, I’ve had my blood checked!

Yes - I’ve tried / calcium & magnesium tablets / capsules!

Because of other condition I’ve tried “strong pain killers!”

Because of stress / anxiety I have and I take diazepam!

Take a warm bath? Joke!

I did find that if I got up and stretched my legs a my legs a bit I could delay the recurrence long enough to get to sleep, but those days have also been and gone!

THEN! A BRAINWAVE!

Type “restless legs” into eBay‘s search engine! Don’t stop reading and stop laughing (;o)

It brought up something which is not presently listed but I can tell you that I bought some at the time and they work for me!

Although the items listed their benefits for restless leg syndrome it was not in the title.

However, the products, which I recommend you try wherever you can get hold of them are:-

HAWTHORN COMPOUND (green buckwheat with garlic & hawthorn extract). Directions = 2 to 4 tablets 3 times a day

And

RUTIVITE (Rutin) = Direction 1 or 2 tablets a day.

As a “belt and braces” job I take both. However I am presently only taking 3 of the Hawthorn Compound and 1 of the Rutivite in the evening before bed!

Voila!

No more restless legs (confirmed by my partner). Test period? Four weeks now!

Good luck.
