Restless Leg Syndrome
Posted 28 June 2007 - 01:33 PM
I'm new here. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks tomorrow. I havn't been formally diagnosed with Celiac diease yet, but I already seem to be at least gluten sensitive. I was having trouble with restless leg syndrome along with a lot of other things, prior to my gluten free diet. My restless leg syndrome disapeared within two days of going on the diet. Has anyone else had this problem? I am amazed at how different I feel in just a short time. I'm also amazed at all the different items wheat is present in. Things you wouldn't even suspect, if you didn't read the label.
I was feeling like I was given a death sentence, trying to get a way from gluten, wheat. It makes going out to dinner such a chore. Thank heavens there a few Restaurants that have GIG menus.
Does anyone have any suggestions for good bread? The one I tried sucked big time.

On the bread... might I suggest not jumping head first into the substitutes? Give yourself a chance to forget what the "real" thing tastes like. I waited a while, because I couldn't find things, I find the farther I get from the memory of something, the more I like the subsitute. May sound wierd, but it works. I like Kinnikinnick myself, though its harder to find. The whole foods bakery is good too. I do not like any of the other pre-made loaf breads, and I cannot eat any of them without toasting them.
My best experience has been with baking bread using Bette Hagman's recipes and flour blends, though I usually don't go through that effort just because I have a tiny kitchen and baking is a big pain.
When I first went gluten-free, I was feeling really bad. I splurged on gluten free mac and cheese and pasta and things, and then had to slow down cause I was eating so much rice I blocked myself up. Once I balanced out and gave myself the breads and things as treats, it got much better. (for me and my pocket book)
Hopefully my ramblings are helpful.

Anemia is a point, but I don't think it's just Anemia. There must be something different which plays a role!
I have been gluten-free for 2 years now and last week my doctor put me on a gluten-containing diet for 6 days and 10 hours and 29 minutes to do a test.
I had it all back at once: RLS, depressions, problems with my concentration during work, skin-problems etc .
There's lots of work to do concerning research!!!
You asked for a good bread:
the rice-bread from Trader Joes. I like it, because it's very sweet.
Try perhaps whole foods gluten-free breads, if there is one in your area.
I have always the problem that everything has sugar in it, since I'm also Fructose-intolerant...so I can't recommend anything edible for non-FIs, sorry!

My doctor was telling me that it was from diabetes nerve damage, while I tested in and out of diabetes.
Never a big bread eater I like to use rice cakes to make sandwiches.

I never realized that RLS and anemia were linked. THAT explains a LOT...the anemia was one of the first things that popped up for me. Ugh---I've had RLS for YEARS...then again...I've been anemic for year too! Ugh.
I was diagnosed with severe anemia a month ago. It was so bad I was immediately sent to the ER and admitted. They had to give me 4 units of blood. I had restless leg before the transfusion but have not had it since. They gave me the Celiac panel and it came out negative...The CT scan shows a very large hiatal hernia...undergoing capsule and upper endoscopy to try and confirm if I have Celiac's or not.
