There seems to be too many people who don't know what RLS is or the symptoms. RLS symptoms have nothing to do with physical aches, but creepy crawly uneasy feelings in either your legs, arms, torso, or other parts of your body. So putting a bar of soap won't do anything for true RLS sufferers like me.
