Patient Comments: Restless Leg Syndrome - Treatments

What method did you find most effective in treating your restless leg syndrome?

Comment from: legs, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: January 14

Full massage of the calf area, the tendons between ankle and calf (Achilles) - especially important as this seems to be the major cause of the jerky feelings in legs, and also massaging the foot. Self massage of the Achilles and calves can be done by putting one leg on the knee of the other leg and rubbing thoroughly. It takes 30-45 minutes to work for each leg.
