there are certain meds that cause RLS, I suspect you may be taking a medication that causes it. camomile tea, is helpful. Also, get active before you lie down, so that you are tired.Caffiene, opiates, and some other drugs cause RLS also. there is a sleeping and anxiety homeopathic otc supplements calms forte that may help. u can get it at the drug store www.calmsforte.com/home
My mom and I both suffer from RLS, my mom has suffered longer than me. Anyway, we both like to rub our legs down before turning in at night. She prefers (rubbing) alcohol and I like the feeling of Aspercream, or any of the pain relieving creams that contain trolamine salicylate 10%. These creams are odorless, greaseless, and don't get hot or icy, but there is a very subtle warmth. I also like to sleep in socks, it seems to comfort my legs as well as my feet. Hope this information helps.
