Wasn't sure where to post this but since I've read from a number of people about RLS on this board, thought I'd try here. Reading about topical pain killers on another thread got me thinking about the "Ben-Gay" I have to put on my hands at night due to degenerative arthritis in my hands. Last night my left foot was hurting. I have RLS and sometimes it's not my whole leg that bothers me, but just my feet. Anyway, I put some of the Ben-Gay on my foot and within 5 minutes I didn't feel the RLS in my foot! I hate to think what I would smell like if I had to use it on my whole leg, but I don't care! When that happens again, I think I'll try it. Could have just been a fluke, but it sure helped last night!
