There is no doubt in my mind that when I eat sugar and gluton, as I did today, my RLS gets worse. When I eat a clean diet, the pain is so much less. There is no doubt about it for me.
As far as the impact RLS has had on my life, it has been extreme and I have come to terms with not having energy to do almost anything. Its the meds and the side effects more than the RLS. itself.
My regime at night to SEDUCE SLEEP...hot whirlpool right before bed, replace my Neuopa patch and slip into bed with good thoughts that I will get some sleep. Sometimes it works ...tonight it is not...WHY? I have eaten sugar all day long and I can feel it in my limbs.
