Q. I have read about using soap under the bottom sheet for leg cramps. Has anyone else put soap in their socks at night to relieve heel pain? My heels feel better after trying this tactic.
A. You are the first to suggest sleeping with soap in your socks for heel pain. Others have suggested, however, that putting soap chips in their socks eases restless legs during long airplane flights. There is, of course, no science behind any of these soap stories.
