Re: RLS and diet
I have found that alcohol makes it much worse. I take calcium and magnesium before bed along with Sinemet. Current theory is that RLS is caused by dopamine deficiency, and there are some good antidepressant meds that enhance dopamine. The best in my opinion is bupropion (Wellbutrin) and I take that daily in AM. Vit D deficincy may aggravate it too, as well as iron deficiency, and you can get those levels checked in blood and supplement them if low. There is also an RLS foundation that has literature, etc. available for people who suffer from this condition. I have had it 20+ years too, and it is better with all the stuff I take, but not gone.
