Restless legs syndrome (RLS) causes uncomfortable or painful sensations in the legs and an overwhelming urge to move them. It often happens in the evening or when you are trying to go to sleep.
To help relieve restless legs syndrome symptoms, start off by massaging, foam rolling, or using a rolling stick to relax the large muscles in your legs like your quads, hamstrings, and calf muscles.
Once you have massaged them out, you can stretch all of these muscles as well with a stretch strap, dog leash, or belt.
Some exercises like ankle pumps and bridges help work the muscles to fatigued them out. This should help calm them down as well.
Finally, the child’s pose is a great stretch for the whole body, and can really help you calm everything back down before you go to sleep.
