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.

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

    • I posted this because ... I wanted us to have some info and see news reports about stuff related to Celiac/gluten free.  But I haven't seen any new tests on the Cheerios.  Has anyone?  
    • I have problems with corn so I have to be aware of that when shopping for spices and gluten-free baking products as Raven pointed out. I use Badia which states certified gluten-free As for encouragement drink lots of water and rest. A nice soak in tub sometimes is soothing. I hope it passes soon. If you find out it is gluten-free after all ask about corn in product, on the line, or facility . May your symptoms be minimal and pass fast  best wishes edit: it was Karen not Raven who mentioned corn  starch my bad entirely 
    • Nov 18, 2015 >.< yeah it was older, Checked some newer testing others have done and found the more recent ones under 5ppm.....so perhaps they got their act together. I still am that old dog recalling being hit and growling at them about it.
    • Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for this? What time period were these tests done?  I am fairly certain you are showing old data here, that is old news that was dealt with by GM...but please share if you know.

      Sorry to be the jumpy rabbit, but once bitten twice shy, I recall when they first came out with gluten-free cheerios....yeah it was worse back then and that pain and trickery will not be forgiven.
