Rls

Recommended Posts

I think I may have some sort of RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) I am trying to figure out if it only occurs when I am glutened or if it is just another phase of getting older. Does anyone have this problem?

My celiac husband has it and he's unsure if it's a result of going misdiagnosed all those years or would he have eventually gotten RLS anyway. I don't think he'll ever know how or why it came on him but he does have other neurological issues related to celiac.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I get restless legs at night and on long car trips after eating sweet things. I have been off of sugar, gluten, dairy, and many other things for quite a while now. I had it worse when I was eating gluten though. I find that if I generally stay away from fruit and other sweet things at night, I do pretty well.
