 What Doctors Don't Tell You: Reader's Corner - Restless legs: 
Then there was the reader who suffers from restless legs syndrome, which seems to be at its worst at night. One reader cured her problem by eliminating foods and chemicals to which she was sensitive. Calcium and magnesium supplements also helped.

Another found that regular running helped and, if that's not possible, at least do the leg stretches that athletes perform during the warm-up period. Another exercise is to stand with your back against a wall, and then slide down until you're sitting with your thighs perpendicular to the floor. Hold the position for a minute or so, and then repeat several times each day.

On the dietary front, raw greens can help, as can nuts and seeds, but soak them overnight first. If the symptoms are worse at night, check the bedsheets, says one reader. Use cotton sheets, and not polycotton ones. Reflexology also helped one reader. Zinc is another deficiency that may be causing the problem, so try supplementing along with magnesium.
