I had heart bypass surgery 8 years ago and the vein was taken from my left leg which caused the lower part of the leg to be partly numb. 2 years ago I started to get RLS symptoms in my left leg and this was put down to the nerves reconnecting , but incorrectly. I developed classic RLS with all the usual sleeplessness and walking about at night. My doctor tried all the usual chemicals to no avail.
Then one day while speaking to my chiropractor about a shoulder problem I mentioned the RLS problem. The chiropractor is also a specialist in soft tissue problems, ie sports injuries and he did a few tests on my leg and then said I had TRIGGER POINT problem in my left calf. I had never been aware of anything wrong with the calf and was able to walk many miles without any awareness of a problem. My chiropractor then started to work on the trigger point and showed me the small very hard lump within the muscle, massaging it was extremely painful and I had to go back a second time, this was a only little less painfull. He said my wife could continue the massaging for a few minutes each evening before bed and over 10 days or so the lump became softer and less painfull during massage and the RLS decreased in activity so that now I do not have a problem with my leg at night and a few more massages should finally remove the remains of the knot. I can only recommend that you try to find a chiropractor who is also a specialist in TRIGGER POINT THERAPY. My doctor was not aware of this treatment but has taken a great interest since I was able to tell about the results. Please think obout this proceedure it is totally drug free and that has to be good.
