The warmer the better

Complete symptom relief reported

From Neurology Now magazine May/June 2010

Marilyn Rench of Racine, Wisconsin, USA writes:

“The description of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) in ‘Night Moves’ (March/April 2010) fits my experience exactly. My RLS came on along with my multiple sclerosis some 15 years ago.

For many years I dealt with it with incomplete success using heating pads and ibuprofen or Tylenol.  But I’ve discovered that I can relieve the symptoms completely by being very warm in bed – soft fleecy blankets next to me on top and bottom, and a big pile of warm blankets on top.  I sleep in the center of the bed and pull the blankets around me so there are no ‘drafts’ to start my leg twitching.”
