I found that putting a bar of soap, between my sheet and mattress, at the foot of the bed helps me to relax my legs when they start twitching. All that I do, is, touch the soap with my foot. This automatically stops the restlessness. I would recommend it.

When I started with SP a year and a half ago; I was in a wheelchair with poor circulation. When I started exercising my legs, My legs became Really Restless! I take natural Magnesium Lactate Twice a day and if I need extra, I have one more before bed! YES to exercise; NO to cramps! Hugs.
It is important to stick with a productive exercise plan. It is imperative to increase that plan. As your body changes it is going to plateau, which means you are going to have to work harder. Burn more calories by increasing the time you spend exercising and by adding weights. Increase a little at a time. You did not gain this weight over night, you won't lose it overnight either. 252
