I'm a very active person and would get restless legs regularly or, when doing yoga intensely, restless arms. Rubbing apple cider vinegar worked like magic for me, so I would keep it by the bed. It would immediately stop the restlessness. After changing jobs and being on my feet all day I started getting the restless legs coming down from my lower back. This time a hot water bottle on my lower back did the trick for a while, also rubbing Amol (a rubbing solution made in Poland), but I had days when these remedies didn't work.

So I desperately searched Earth Clinic (which I always do when in need for remedies) and found baking soda. AND THAT DID THE TRICK THIS TIME!

Thank you guys and thank you so much Earth Clinic for bringing so much relief, clarity, and sanity into our stressful and demanding lives.

EC: Hi, can you please tell us how you took the baking soda? Thanks!

Apple cider vinegar is working for me as I type this. The pain/throbbing sensation (I get it mostly in my left arm, feet and ankles, and lower legs) has gone away immediately where I applied it topically. I applied it on my whole left arm, and I mean really got it nice and saturated, and it helped immediately and is still working as I typed this. I believe it is really working and not just a placebo effect because the throbbing, tingling pain sensation went to a part of my left hand where I didn't apply any.

Also, I did take an aleve, but I noticed the effect from the apple cider vinegar more, after giving the aleve plenty of time to kick in. I also just made a magnesium drink with about 200% of the RDA, and I will drink it just in case, but still, so far, no need after the apple cider vinegar. I would just as well like to "over-cure" rather leave it all up to the ACV. I will also apply the magnesium drink topically, at least a little, to get it absorbed straight to the problem area through the skin. Hope this helps. And if it doesn't, don't be a sociopath and write outrageous comments about how we are all evil for attempting to help ourselves and others. Thanks!

Yes. Thank you so very much for posting this. It really worked for me. About an half an hour to an hour before I go to sleep, I warm up a glass of water (8 oz. or so) and add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey. (I buy the one that says unfiltered apple cider vinegar made from ripe apples - organic, pasteurized). This formula really worked for me. The taste is good and I read a lot of things about apple cider vinegar, it is supposed to be a very good thing and has been used for centuries safely. So definitely give it a try. Thank you again!!!

for anyone who can't take acv for their restless legs they can rub it into their legs, this works just as well as taking it internally

I started taking apple cider vinegar for the acid reflux , i took one tablespoon with a cold glass of water a day for a week and right away i notice that my legs didn't hurt at night any more, which they have been bothering me for years. i never went to the doctors about it. every night it kept me awake for hours,and i felt like crying thinking i don't want to have to go through this the rest of my life. i started taking aleve or whatever else i could think might work which i don't like taking med. aleve didn't work that good. anyway, the apple cider vinegar did work for me. i did have to quit taking it every day because i only weigh 132 pounds and the vinegar was making me lose weight so now i only do the vinegar every 3 or four days and it is still working. i'm very glad i started taking it for the acid reflux and found that my legs no longer I'm am so thankful. i have no problem going to sleep at night any more. as bad as it bothered me and now that it doesn't, i want every one that has restless legs to give it a try . oh yea i started taking it october 5th 2006. well that is a bout it good luck to any one with restless legs. i know what it is like to have restless legs ,and i hope it works for all who tries it. good luck
