Restless legs syndrome? I’ve got it bad and need advice please? ?

So I have restless legs syndrome and it has been bothering me every night this week. I’ve told my dr about it but he’s afraid to put me on anything since I take psych meds. Saying that it will hurt me if he put the two together. So I tried looking online for home remedies and even tried putting a pillow between my legs where they bother me the most at. That didn’t help neither. So I’m out of things to try and I thought that I would start a discussion on here to see if I could get any insights. My mother has it too, and so does her brother. They say on webmd that it’s hereditary but I don’t rightly know if it is or not. So if you have any ideas or website links to guide me to, I’d much appreciate it before going to bed tonight. Much thanks in advance and blessed be!

    This is gonna sound weird, but it works for me. Put a heating pad on your calves. Or what ever feels best for you. I've been doing it for years. Only way to get some sleep at all some nights.

    It seems to be in connection with a gluten sensitivity.

    Exercising your legs! It helps a lot, walking or an elyptical, there also is medications for it but walking is the best thing I did, it made it go away so I could sleep at night
