Yes...Are you able to get in and out of the bath? Hot baths with Epsom salts will make you feel wonderful, I promise. From the bath, get in to some warm clothes. Wrap up in an electric blanket or use a heating pad on your thighs, back, feet...keep rotating it. Take magnesium and potassium tabs, drink Tonic water, and get some Hylands Restful Legs tablets. You can get it all at Walmart, Walgreens, etc...these things will help that horrible restless, crawling feeling you have. The other thing that helps it is cough syrup containing DXM so if you have some of that in the house, you can take a tbsp. of it every several hours.
Keep forcing the fluids down: green tea, Gatorade, juices, water...Post back with questions or concerns and we'll try to help. You can do this!
