RLS remedy

My mother sent me an article on RLS and it said to take 3 teaspoons of yellow mustard.  I haven't tried it yet but know lots of elderly folks that swear by it.  Let us all know if anyone tries it and it works.  Good luck!

I also have a home remedy book thats says to try soaking your feet in cold water.  I've also heard this for getting rid of headaches.  Additionally, take one multivitamin daily, 2 aspirins before bedtime, don't eat a big meal late, reduce caffeine, don't use alcohol as a sedative and avoid sleep-inducing medications.  Researchers suspect that an imbalance in the brain's chemistry may be the root cause of the problem.  Makes sense to me.  Hope this helps.

I wonder if putting it on a sandwich would work?  Probably not, it needs to be concentrated.  Anyone up for this?

LMAO   I love these home remedies.  I tried the one where you put a bar of soap under your bed sheets(to get rid of RLS).  Well, it didn't take away the RLS, but it did keep my feet busy all night, pushing it around like a hockey puck. .....and my sheets smelt good.

Anyway...thanks for the laugh!!!
