Determining the best homeopathic remedies for restless leg syndrome for you will depend on how you experience the disorder and the nature of your symptoms. Some patients may have restless leg syndrome combined with high levels of stress and anxiety. Others may feel an overwhelming need to move around. Patients may also experience a wide range of sensations in their legs, from burning to cramping to extreme pain. Different homeopathic remedies work better than others depending on these variations, and you will want to seek out the one best suited for your condition.

If you tend to be tense, anxious, or even get panic attacks in association with your disorder, there are several homeopathic remedies for restless leg syndrome that may be right for you. Aconitum napellus is known to be good for easing feelings of stress or agitation that can keep you awake, and will also ease leg pains. Ignatia can help if you tend to be nervous, stressed, or overly sensitive, especially if you have muscle spasms that keep you awake. Patients who are prone to feeling stressed may also benefit from using causticum.

Another variation of restless leg syndrome that may influence which homeopathic remedy will work in your case is the need to move during the night. Those who feel extremely restless, with constant tossing and turning or even the need to get up and walk around, might want to try Rhus toxicodendron. If your feelings of restlessness are accompanied simultaneously by feelings of exhaustion, and you tend to feel weakness, trembling, and burning in your legs, Arsenicum album might work for you. Sulphur can help if your restless movement is associated with seeking a cool spot in the bedding for legs that feel too warm.

The type and intensity of the discomfort you are feeling is also very important when choosing the right homeopathic remedies for restless leg syndrome. Causticum, Arsenicum album, and sulphur are all useful for those with cramping or drawing sensations in the legs; causticum and sulphur are also good for burning discomfort. Arsenicum album and ignatia are both good for twitching or spasming muscles, while Rhus toxicodendron is good for stiff, achy joints and muscles. For those with the most severe, debilitating cases of restless leg syndrome, where pain and the need to move the legs is intense and almost constant, Zincum metallicum may be the best choice.

The Health Board is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.

Taking a warm shower before I go to bed is the best restless leg syndrome remedy for me. For some reason, the warm water calms my legs. It also helps to make me relaxed and sleepy, which could account for the easing of my restless leg symptoms.

One of the most natural remedies for restless leg syndrome is to simply take a short walk. This quick and easy treatment often helps to calm down leg movement and works out tension that may be the root of the problem.
