OK, I'll admit. I've been lurking for a little while now. When I read the post on soap under the sheets I thought you all must be crazy!!

Well, after hopping around my house on one leg two nights ago, I was desperate. I started searching my house for a bar of soap (didn't think my shower gel would work so well.) The only bar I could find was my son's $12 bar of prescription Eczema soap. Well (still thinking this was crazy) I stuck it under my sheets and guess what!!! I fell asleep!!! I kept it under there last night and had no problems!

I don't know what kind of voodoo magic this is, but I have to give you all my heartfelt thanks for a good night sleep! (And I'm taking stock in Dove)
I too thought this was a crazy idea, but I had so many sleepless nights because I suffered with RLS for years and nothing would help that I also thought what have I got to lose? So I put a bar of soap under my sheets and I sleep so good with no jerking of my legs! I don't know why this works, but I've been doing this for about a month now and I sleep so much better.
Just wanted to add my two cents and say thank you to whoever it was that was brave enough to post the idea!!!
I have mild to moderate RLS but have not tried this remedy yet. My mother told me about it recently and she swears it works for her moderate to severe RLS symptoms. After the last few night's I've had...I've already got an unwrapped bar of hotel soap sitting under the covers hoping they'll work their magic on me tonight.

Wive's tale, psychosomatic cure, chemical reaction or just plain magic...I'm willing to try ANYTHING to get some sleep. I figure it's free and painless and if it does work somehow, it's worth a shot. If it does't work, I'm just out a few weird looks and shakes of the head from the hubby who thinks I'm nuts. LOL

I'll post the results of the experiment tomorrow.
