Well that was a rather dumb thing I did. There have been a variety of mushrooms in the yard, some of them did look poisonous. Not doing that again. You do weird things when you are desperate. I did go to the store and got a mushroom blend for immune support. Helps a lot with the allergies.

Feet are doing better with reflexology and I also found out one of the hormones I was taking for sleep (I'm doing HRT) can cause muscoskeletal and joint pain. So I got the hormones switched. I am cautiously optimistic.

OK I found a very safe natural antidepressant that should be okay with anyone's RLS. l-methionine. This is an amino acid that produces natural sam e in the body. Sam e has been used for depression. However, I tried sam e over the counter and it activated my RLS. I also know someone with major depressive disorder who stated methionine helped take the edge off the depression.
