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.

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!

I have been diagnosed with RLS. Unfortunately it has not gone away. Maybe improved a little. Is there a connection between Celiac and RLS. Never thought of it before.

Wow, I never really thought about it - but YES! My RLS virtually disappeared after going gluten free.

Please get your Vitamin D, Calcium, ALP levels as Celiac patients are known to be deficient in Vit D and have Osteoporosis. Get these investigations or touch base with your family physician.

They can also cause restless Legs and cramps, I have suffered from these and now on regular Vit D supplements and Calcium.

Not for me. I take a medication called Ropinerole at night and a lower dose in the morning.

Loey

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
