Here's a mystery. I am on holiday in Thailand. I came prepared to eat steamed rice and meat for three weeks and enjoy myself.
After I arrived I decided to eat a wider diet and back off if the RLS became too bad. Push the limits a bit
Four days later I have no RLS and I am eating everything on the menu. Nothing triggers it. I expected problems because of the curries and things. I am still avoiding caffiene when possible but that is leaving me with about 4 cups of caffeinated coffee per day compared to zero normally. I even brought my own decaf with me, and two packets of instant oats just in case it was all I could eat.
The only change I have made recently is to start taking Vitamin B12 and Folate every day. I started this about 2 weeks ago when someone reported success with it. I expected it to take a few weeks to have an effect. (Vitamin B12 cyanocobalamin 100 microgram and Folate folic acid 500 microgram )
I have been on the Low Chemical Diet so I haven't had RLS for the last weeks so I cant say when the RLS stopped. I can only say that it was with me about three weeks ago when I challenged the diet unsuccessfully and now its gone.
This seems like magic but I would love to hear from anyone else who has tried out this supplementation and whether it worked or not.
Does anyone know of possible side effects of either of these chemicals?
I will report back in two weeks on the longer term result
