Something that worked for me

Finally something worked for me. I've had restless leg syndrome for several years. Tried many things, nothing seemed to work. A couple of weeks ago I told about my problem to my masseur and he said this is because my bladder meridian is blocked. He showed me the points on my calf and told me to massage them. He told me to press them hard untill I feel the pain, to massage it clock wise eight times and than backwards eight times, than release, and repeat. I did it for 15 minutes. And this unbearable feeling just vanished. I still sometimes feel like it's coming, but I quickly do the maasage and it goes away. The bladder meridian goes through the middle of your calf. Google bladder meridian and you will find pictures where the points are. Good luck.

Forgot to mention that I also take, calcium, iron and Vitamin B supplements. I am on dialysis and I do blood test each month. So I noticed that when my hemoglobin and iron goes down RLS gets worse. But that was before I discovered this massage.

I just put biofreeze on the back of my knees and calves and this seems to work well for me.

I found this interesting because I'm familiar with pressure points for nausea and toothache; so I know it can work.

My wife and I have relatively mild cases of RLS compared to many of you. But it's still a major annoyance. So I Googled 'bladder meridian' and found the appropriate pressure points on the back of the calf. It works for both of us!
