Can you wrap your legs in ace bandages? Also if you noticed this before maybe you should tell your doctor. I had it before too and take something for it now.
I also took calcium and magnesium supplements. If you move around a little that helps too. Maybe take a walk.
There is an entry in my journal on rls from a study at the hospital i work a...and yes compression with compression hose or tightly wrapped ace can help..also supps that help and i have heard there is a medication at walmart for it..also prescription drugs for it as not only addicts get RLS..it is in the "clean" population as well..heat and massage works and exercise helps alot...stats show that the more active u r the less likely u will have this during wds...even stretches can help
baclofen helps the bad leg cramps, i don't know if it helps with shaking? i'm using it now for bad leg cramps from methadone w/d, and it stops the restless leg thing in bed at night.i haven't really gotten shaking legs, i more get the shakey hands, but clonidine seems to help lessen that.
yeah magnesium supps. i think thats useful for cramping legs too.
its pretty hard to stop the shaking you get in youre legs from withdrawal, but a good muscle relxant like valium, lorazepam, or xanax, are good msucel spasm relievers and on top of it it helps a ton with the anxiety and insomnia,but take it only as needed cuz they are very addicting as well...try the OTC meds or a warm bath and if taht doesnt work at all or helps a little i would go look through a doctor for benzos..
