Soap trick

I was telling my sister (a nurse) that I think I have RLS. I also have FMS, CFS, and had a spinal cord injury. She told me to put a bar of soap under my sheets, I thought she was kidding, but I did it anyway. Well about two days later my legs didn't ache as much and I didn't feel the need to move them as much. Has anyone else ever heard of this silly old wives tale, and any ideas why this works?
