What the..? My husband has severe chronic RLS. Not much he has not tried and is on Sifrol etc now. That was not too successful either. Relentless augmentation with any combo of drugs.
Recently, he began testing for lactose and fructose intolerance. The preparatory diet before the testing day consists of things like only white bread, no garlic, onion etc, some meats and eggs, butter; few vegetables peeled - like potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes. On this prep diet, we are totally shocked that his restless legs issue has stopped dead.
Many of these type of foods would be triggers for him or make it worse. He had put off having these tests because so dreaded the expected worsening of RL on the preparation elimination diet. His normal diet is high quality with no rubbish. Its been a week and we are still gobsmacked at the quiet legs. He is experimenting with adding one food at a time to try and work out what might be happening. We assume this is about what is NOT there rather than what is in the test diet.
Anybody got any similar experience? Or possible explanation? This is crazy.
