This is my first posting on this board, and I will be happy if I can help just one person with Restless Leg Syndrome.
I have had this problem for about 30 yrs or more. No doctor knew what was causing it. Then I became my own doctor. I could go a month no restless leg, then all of a sudden it would kick in big time. I was always exhausted because of lack of sleep.
Then out of the blue I started to notice that whenever I ate something such as grapenuts, bran, wheat,anything high in iron, including pills.
I also have problems with certain medications, such as attenolol,accupril diazide feldene, cozaar, indocin, B vitamins, vasotec, this is only a few.
I can honestly tell you that since discovering this about 2 years ago, I may have had restless leg 4 times!! I still mess up once in awhile with food or pills, but my legs sure know.
Hope this helps someone.
