Hormones and diet

I now realize I had RLS as a child. It went away at puberty. It returned with a vengance with menopause. It subsided with hormone replacement therapy, and came back again when I stoped taking estrogen.

Recently I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. When I had been on a gluten free diet for a few weeks I noticed that I rarely had and RLS episode.

It is no wonder to me that finding a good treatment for this is so difficult. It seems we all have different triggers and different ways to cope. When I do have a problem I rub my legs with Mineral Ice. That seems to help after a few minutes.

Re: Hormones and diet

Glutens are in wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, no bread, pancakes, cookies, cakes, or pasta. Glutens are also in MSG = monosodiumglutimate which are in many foods such as Ranch dressing, ketchup, mustard, soy sauce, and flavorings. I read the labels on all packages. You can eat rice, potatoes, nachos, cheese, milk, many dairy products, all fruits and vegaetables. Some sour creams and ice creams have MSG. There are many sites that will tell you what foods have glutens. Please try a gluten free diet for one day and see if there isn't a difference. I was pain free the very first day. I slept so well last night. I woke up once to roll over and laid there thinking how great it felt. My legs were so comfortable! Please give it a try and then let me know your results.
