: My doctor prescribed Sinemet 25/100--didn't work. Then prescribed Amitriptyline 10mg--doesn't work. I did a sleep study, results showed my legs moved in excess of 500 per hour (normal is 5 times an hour).

I've had RLS for several years. What I find helps me is magnesium supplements and also while lying on my back, I tuck one leg at a time under so that my heel is against my rearend and stretch it to the point of discomfort. Leave it there for a good five minutes, stretching and relaxing alternately. Then do the other leg the same way. Also, if it's really bad and that doesn't work, I use the heel of one foot to "massage" the other leg - both below and above the knee - and also use my hands to "massage" the top of my feet.
Hope this helps! It's sure helped me!
