In brief: Find the cause first

Primary RLS is often has a genetic component and thus can't be cured, but can be treated.
Secondary rls: often due to deficiency of foate, magnesium, b12, iron, or diabete, neuropathy, lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogren syndrome, urnemia/severe kidney disease, or amyloidosis..Thus treating these conditions generally resolves the symptoms of rls. Thus, consult doc first to eval.. Good luck.
