My CIDP gave me a bonus form of itchy, restless leg syndrome (RLS). It’s an itching, twitching, squirmy feeling in my legs. It is not painful, but extremely irritating. It can keep me from sleeping at times. My neuro had me on Requip (Ropinirole) for my RLS but it didn’t help me and I was experiencing some of the side affects from that drug, so I went off it.

What I found that works for me is a low cost over-the-counter homeopathic item called “Restless Legs Relief” from Magnilife. It’s available in most drug stores. This works wonders for my itching and RLS symptoms, it usually starts working in about 30 minutes after taking it. There are always some that would say this is not a medicine. But, as far as I’m concerned, if it helps remove and/or reduce RLS discomfort it IS a medicine of sorts. I take it daily and it has worked consistently for me for a few years now.
