Restless Legs Syndrome

Mike

I would just like to tell other sufferers of rls of my recent discovery and massive relief of rls after at least 30 years of suffering. I have for some time been taking a daily iron tablet also a small glass of tonic (containing quinine) before bedtime but I have also recently added to the iron with a nightly portion of spinach washed and cooked slowly with no added water. My rls is 90 per cent better. It's a hassle cooking spinach every night but well worth it. P.s. I have an allotment and grow my own. But not as tasty as the baby leaves bought in most supermarkets.

Quinine is prescribed for leg cramps and does not help RLS at all.

Quinine is fine for mild cramps. I took it when I first got rls but after about a year it got worse and quinine wasn't strong enough.

Hi Mike, thank you for sharing your discovery with us fellow sufferers, it's always encouraging to read what has helped others.

I find it so frustrating on this site when other members replies are so quick to be negative and discard people's comments - this is supposed to be a place to support each other. People should feel comfortable in being able to post comments without getting 'shot down in flames' for something they have written.....sorry, rant over....

Thank you for sharing Mike. Spinach is also full of iron but I was told always to eat it with food containing vitamin C so the iron is utilised. Cheers Jimeka

I read on here that tonic water helps but it takes a quart and doesn't work if you stop. I also read that iron if it is already digested will get rid of the rls but not if you stop. I also read that magnesium is a cure.

Wonder why spinach works so well. Is it the vit c?
