Try putting a bar of soap under your bed sheet at the foot of your bed. It totally gets rid of restless leg syndrome. I don't know how it works, I just know it does. I haven't had a problem with it in years since I did that.

I take magnesium for RLS and several muscular issues, including cramps, and bowel peristalsis function. It has been helpful. πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

My muscle twitches have been a little less intense and not as often as long as I take 100mg at night and I've found that taking my multi vitamin and mineral supplement in the morning helps ruduce the muscle twitches during the day (it has 100mg of magnesium citrate included).
It hasn't taken the muscle twitches away but ruduced them a bit.
I don't say restless leg syndrome because I get the muscle twitches in both arms, both legs and even in my sides. I've always had a slight twitch in my legs but it's the arms and sides....particularly my sides....that cause me concern because I could be sitting down somewhere and all of a sudden I've dropped my phone thanks to the muscle twitches or I'd be sitting colouring trying to destroys and relax and I've gone off on to my side knocking my daughter if she's sat next to me.
It took about 6 weeks of taking the magnesium for me to notice a difference but they haven't gone completely. I won't take the 300mg recommended daily dose as I like to try and soak in a hot bath with Epsom Salts or put the Epsom salts in a large bowl of hot water and soak my feet if I don't feel I'm able to get in and out of the bath.

100 mg is a low dose but adding the other supplements is a good Idea. I read about epsom salts and its positive effect let me when u try it.

It really does work whether you put a few cups in a hot bath or a cup or two in a bowl and soak your feet in it. You need to soak in a hot bath or your feet for at least 20 minutes to get the benefits from it. Again Epsom bath salts ingredient is magnesium which is why I only take 100mg magnesium in the morning and 100mg at night.
I also take vitamin D as I'm borderline deficient, I take a gentle iron suspension supplement again because I'm borderline anemic and I take a vitamin B complex to try to help reduce fatigue (iron and vitamin D also help fight fatigue).

I also take evening primrose oil caps and a garlic supplement but these are for other reasons.

I think I'm going to try this for targeted spots I cannot reach on my back! I read about it on Pinterest.

You can make your own just put a cup of Epsom salt in a cup and a half of hot water and let it dissolve. Don't be suprised if it is itchy like after you walk in salt water. Leave it on as long as you can stand it then rinse it off with plain water. Any way that we can get extra magnesium in our body it seems to help with muscle and nerve pain.
