I have suffered from rls for 10 years. I got tired of taking more and more prescription drugs and was getting rls even with the drugs.

I was amazed when I found, after looking at this helpful site, that 1/4 Tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda made into a paste and rubbed onto my legs took the rls away immediately.

I wondered if anyone knows whether this, by changing the ph of my skin, might be harmful.

I have restless legs at night sometimes. Since reading about the many cures here I have tried 1/4 tsp of baking soda in a cup of water: within 20 minutes my legs are calm and I am able to sleep. I haven't found anything else that helps; won't try pharmaceutical drugs to help, don't want any side effects. The baking soda really helps me!
