I thought I would try and keep you updated on my progress with working out what helps RLS (in my case) as I go along my journey.
OK so since we last spoke I have tried moving the time that I take my dose of Sertraline from before bed (as I didn't realise this could increase symptoms) to first thing in the morning. This seems to have helped a lot! I still have RLS but it has definitely died down slightly so I am really grateful to those of you who suggested this.
Also, I have started taking a multivitamin as many of you have suggested that different deficiencies can irritate it... so I thought hey why not just try and increase vitamin intake altogether and see what happens!
Finally, I've seen that some of you find hot baths helping- I am usually a shower girl but have definitely found that bathing before bed has helped me to get a restful nights sleep.
However, I do find that RLS is much worse when I am menstruating. I don't know why this is but I will let you know if the measures I have put in place helps during this time.
I hope that this helps some of you and I will continue to keep you posted.
