Vitamin d deficiency?

Not personally tried but was looking into it for a friend and saw a lot of anecdotal positive reports around those weighted blankets. My friend hasn’t bought one yet but is going to give it a go. Q

Magnesium spray from Holland & Barrett. I've suffered for years, this is the only thing that helps.

Are you drinking plenty of water? I get this when dehydrated.

The magnesium spray helps me. Low iron can cause sore legs at night. Also make sure you don’t get dehydrated ever.

Get your blood sugar tested, I had restless legs then had a blood test for something else and my blood sugar was pre diabetic. I low carbed, it went down to normal levels and my restless legs completely went.
