This would make sense if many people with restless leg syndrome were hyperactive children.

Carolh,

Being the scientist that you are, maybe you can explain why my wife (who suffers from severe RLS) gets almost immediate relief by placing two bars of "Coast" deodorant soap between the matress pad and the fitted sheet of our bed near her calves.

The ingredients listed on their website are:
Soap (Sodium Cocoate*, Sodium Palm Kernelate*, Sodium Tallowate*), Water, Talc, Coconut Acid*, Palm Acid*, Tallow Acid*, Palm Kernel Acid*. Fragrance, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Sodium Chloride, Pentasodium Pentetate and/or Tetrasodium Etidronate, Titanium Dioxide, Ultramarines, Chromium Hydroxide Green

*contains one or more of these ingredients

I know this sounds crazy, but I read about using any deodorant soap (except Dial) this way from a columnist known as "Doctor Gott" a number of years ago. Until we tried this remedy, she would keep me awake for hours during the night running in place every 20 seconds. Now she rarely has any episodes and if she does it seems to follow an evening sitting watching a long movie.

Everyone we've told about this remedy have seen similar beneficial results.

:-)

Tom, I think it has to do with them being an obstacle and a reminder. Some snoring remedies use the same principle.

She tried using Dial deodorant soap and regular soap just to test the remedy (at my prodding) and those bars didn't work.

Could be phsycological, but ... It works!

I thought you were supposed to use Ivory soap. I have never done it - I get leg spasms but if I keep the minerals up (Ca and Mg both) I don't get them as often - they also tend to come more often after eating more than my share of "bad" foods - breads - chips for example.
