Re: Location of RLS Symptoms Changing

But is there a mechanism why symptoms would appear in the legs (as they do for most mild cases)? This is not only an interesting question but also difficult to even really speculate on other than the ideas you came up with. I previously thought it was the limited flexibility due to biomechanics tha...

Re: Location of RLS Symptoms Changing

I have never heard any explanations for location of symptoms. I can only speak from my own experiences which most don’t like, but against my better judgement, I will have another go. As my RLS is from oxalates, symptoms occur when oxalates are broken down though exercise or general oxalate dumping....

Re: Melatonin added to the mix

Try the lowest dose of melatonin.

I take 5 mg, but know someone who takes 0.5 mg or they become a zombie.

Variable results with RLS. Doesn't impact me.

Re: I Think I Found A Possible Cause and Definite Treatment for RLS

Thanks for sharing.

These things are worth a try, as well as an explanation.

Good luck with your RLS.

Re: research on use of TENS for PLMs and query

TENs pads can be made sticky again by cleaning with a wet toothbrush and applying ultrasound gel. Always store in a sealed quick seal bag to stop them from drying out. I use sports compression skins on my calf when using TENS to hold the pads in place, which makes things easier. 1 set of pads have b...

Re: Sleep, microbiome, high blood pressure

I certainly feel bad for the rats, but I've never had high blood pressure from sleep deprivation.

I have a home unit and rarely see a doc, but don't most of EDITED OUT MEANING PEOPLE WHO USE MEDICATIONS see doctors regularly?

Is high blood pressure an issue?

Re: I Think I Found A Possible Cause and Definite Treatment for RLS

This is very interesting. Please keep us updated when this works for a week, then a month and if it keeps doing the job. I had a similar effect with potassium as my body loaded. I could take 1 gm and symptoms would stop. But when I normalised levels, this benefit stopped as there was no longer a cha...

Re: If rls is caused by brain iron deficiency why do hot baths help?

There are massive divides amongst the RLS community on what RLS is, with many of those differences based on how much faith you have in researchers and medical professionals. So the question you are asking is one of many that don’t fit with commonly held views by alleged experts. Research on RLS is a...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

Your situation sounds complicated. Usually a the sign of oxalate dumping is the cloudy urine and you feel like you have been poisoned, which doesn't seem to have happened. Well done with the experimentation and getting some improvement with diet, so that may be your success and not oxalates. Your ex...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

I use Go Healthy Go Garcinia Slim Gold, 12 g and 600mg HCA. I usually take one capsule and 1gm Calcium Citrate first thing in the morning after an oxalate dump, which is around 2 times per week currently. Prevously during heavy constant dumping I took up to 4 per day with potasium bicarbonate, or I ...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

At the moment i would say that i have somewhat cloudy urine about two times per week. I'm not taking any Garcinia Cambogia. Whats your experience with this? I definitely do not want to loose any weight (BMI of 20). For me, the most interesting thing about the diet change to low oxalates is my incre...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

I eliminated high-oxalate foods from my diet a while ago and didn't have any dump effects. But I might check what medium-oxalate foods I can remove too, to go truly low oxalate for a few weeks. There seems to be weak evidence https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/garcinia-cambogia-weight-loss . I co...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

I wonder if you have recommendations for oxalate content lists. This is a bit of a nightmare. There are lots of different resources, that are of varying ages and different values for oxalates. They contradict because, just to add more confusion, plants have different oxalate levels based on growing...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

Oxalates bind to magnesium, potassium and iron; which are important for RLS. Low brain iron (BID) has been found in people with autism; who have high body produced oxalates. It looks on paper that a good percentage of people with RLS have oxalates as the cause, but I have no thoughts on why a small ...

Holy Crap! The celery juice has actually been working. Who would have believed it?
Not really a surprise. Magnesium and potassium are well known to help some people. Calcium could also help those with oxalate issues.
