Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Opioids

I’m glad that approach has helped you. RLS is no fun, although it’s not painful, it causes many sleepless nights. However, I cannot take iron or vitamin C because I have hereditary Hemochromatosis (HH). I have to rid my blood of excess iron by way of regular phlebotomy and I have to also control it through diet. I cannot take supplemental iron, nor eat high heme iron foods, or take Vit C becase it aids iron absorption. After my HH diagnosis, and now that my iron is lower, I rarely get RLS symptoms, so, I am confused.

Well, I’m very sorry about the problems you have to tolerate. However, not all solutions work for everybody. I can understand why what Dr. scalcini ordered for me may not work for you. But, great that don’t have RLS.
