What is Restless Legs Syndrome?
You snuggle into bed and get ready for a good night’s sleep. Then it happens. Your Restless Legs Syndrome kicks in. Those hard-to-describe, unpleasant sensations are giving you an overwhelming urge to move your legs, and that urge keeps you up most of the night. You feel like you might lose your mind, and you don’t know what to do.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do at home to help reduce symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome. These tips may not completely alleviate RLS symptoms, but they can certainly help you sleep better at night.
Get a Massage
A leg massage can go a long way in alleviating your symptoms. While you can go to a masseuse, a simple at-home massage will do the trick. Rub your legs at least two times a week for the best results. Even a light rub will do the trick.
Say No to Stimulants and Depressants
Alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine might be fun to consume, but they can make your symptoms much worse. You should completely eliminate caffeine and nicotine. However, you can have a drink from time to time, but don’t imbibe after 6 p.m. Otherwise, you will have a rough night.
Engage in Moderate Exercise
You can reduce your symptoms by engaging in some moderate exercise three times a week. You should mix it up between lower-body resistance training and aerobic exercise to get the best results. You’ll likely notice an improvement within 12 weeks. Keep up with the exercise routine after you notice an improvement, so you’ll continue to see results.
Take Over-the-Counter Medication
While there are prescription medications approved to treat Restless Legs Syndrome, you may also find that some over-the-counter medications can ease symptoms and help you sleep. If you prefer tablets that dissolve under the tongue, MagniLife Relaxing Legs is an easy option to calm and relax the legs. On the other hand, if you are looking for a topical option, MagniLife Relaxing Leg Cream is available at most stores and has excellent reviews online.
Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet
Some medications make restless leg syndrome worse. Open up your medicine cabinet and check for antidepressants, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and antiemetics. Talk to your provider if you have any of these medications. Your doctor might switch your prescriptions to something else that won’t make your symptoms worse.
Loosen Up Your Bedding
Do you tuck in your sheets with military precision? If so, you could be making your symptoms worse. Loose bedding lets you move freely under the sheets. That, in turn, can reduce cramping in your legs. Loosen up your sheets and see if your symptoms get better.
Restless Legs Syndrome causes anxiety, and anxiety can make the symptoms worse. Fortunately, you can manage your anxiety by practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness helps people avoid the panicked feeling they can get when waiting for RLS symptoms to arrive. It can also help them deal with the symptoms as they come. There are countless mindfulness books on the market, and you can even find websites that are dedicated to the practice. In addition, therapists can teach you the art of mindfulness. You will be amazed by how much better you feel once you use this technique.
Pick Up a Hobby
Restless Legs Syndrome symptoms can seem unbearable, and people often spend a lot of their time thinking about them. That, of course, makes the symptoms worse when they do appear. Get a hobby to distract yourself from your condition. Knitting, crossword puzzles, book clubs, and sports are just some of the potential distractions out there. The more you focus on something else, the less time you will have to focus on the symptoms. That will alleviate your stress level and help you control your symptoms. In addition, you will have a fun hobby to enjoy.
