    I have a question about restless legg syndrom. I have heard that putting soap bars in the bed at night is good for this.

    But someone told me that it only works for legg cramps. My husband has tried it for his rls and thinks it is wirking anyone ever heard of this??

    Thank you for responding to my post. Well guess it could be a placibo effect lol but if it works thats great My husband does not have rls every night so it is still in the experimental stage for us. But he thinks its working for him.

    I also heard that it had to be a soap like ivory but not sure about that either.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Hi - It has to be pure soap (Ivory Soap) and you place a bar underneath your bottom sheet at the foot of your bed.

    I have done this now for the past few months and it does work.

    Good Luck and hope it helps.

    lol My husband just took all the little leftovers pieces of soap( we use Lever) and used them and he says that seems to work so maybe he is haveing a placebo affect.

    Oh well I won't tell him.
