Reply To: foot pain and numbness
I too have experienced some of what you describe. Sometimes this is due, at least in part, to iron deficiency. My Doc put me on Ropinirole (Requip) and that didn’t help enough. What I found that helps me is an over-the-counter tablet from Magnilife that I dissolve under my tongue. It works for me usually within 20 minutes.

Many drug stores carry it, but I buy it on-line in bulk because I may take 1-3 in succession when the feelings are present, sometimes the RLS or toe sensations wake me up at night, so I keep a bottle next to my bed. It allows me to go back to sleep.
Hope it might help you and others that are ‘blessed’ with our lousy disorder.
