Just wondering if anyone has been cured of Restless Leg Syndrome after going gluten-free? I think mine may be gone??? (I hate to say that) I'm a month gluten-free, I'm sure hoping that is the case.

Yes. That is one of the few symptoms that has gone away for me since I started the gluten free diet. I hope that you really are done with Restless Leg Syndrome. It is quite frustrating to put up with.

If it's being caused by an iron deficiency that was itself caused by malabsorption due to celiac - sure, it could totally do that.
I developed RLS well after going gluten (and dairy) free.

Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

yes, and it went away quite soon, probably like a week after going gluten-free.

This is good news, I keep thinking this is too good to be true. I'm hoping it doesn't come back. It is neurological so it would make sense that it could improve. I am also taking B12 in hopes that will help too.

Mine is gone as long as I stay on all my vitamins, the B-12 helps the most. 7 weeks gluten free...

My RLS improved, but didn't go completely away until I cut out all refined grains, starches, and sugars.

i've been on the gluten-free diet for 3 weeks now and my restless legs haven't gotten much better, hard to tell if there's much improvement at all. I have increased my Nuerontin to 600 mg per night and am taking 1.5 pills of Mirapex and 1 Clonazapan each night, so that's been helping. I'm hoping that this diet will help with the restless legs as well.

I feel like my restless legs have improved a bit, but can't figure out if it's that I'm taking sleeping pills or what. I also notice that RL is a very cyclical thing for me. The worst few nights that I have RL are right before my period.
Anyone else experience this?

we call it "jimmy legs" and I had that about one week out of every month.

The week I stopped gluten I had it TERRIBLY! for about three nights but then it quit altogether.

there seem to be less nights I have RL syndrome, although I notice if I do a a lot of spinning (I spin yarn, esp. at night) I'm more apt to get the RL. Mine don't bother me until early in the morning. I'm no a pretty high dose of Mirapex and Gabiprintin (Neurontin) and also take 1 Clonazapam per evening. Sorry about the bad spelling.

Nope, and my serum is well above the recommended level to treat it. When I had a sleep study, I moved my legs 30 times an hour on average. The only thing that quiets them is if I spend the day up and down stairs or a ladder. I would like it to stop, but I have balance issues already, so no neurotin for me.

Yes. My Restless Legs stopped sometime in the first month, my husbands stopped at about the three month mark so it is different for everyone.

I am continually amazed by how much better life is off of this poison. :D

Cheers!
