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.”
