I'm sure this is in a past thread, but I have had to give up any glass of wine ever!  I tried again to have one glass of Chardonnay at dinner the other night and I was up writhing through the night - and no meds helped.  Anyone else have this experience?

    Having given up most pleasures, I still have a can of beer or glass of wine when I don't have a migraine. The only thing I can take now is Tramadol and I am currently able to take a small amount of alcohol and have little RLS at night. I usually get up for 15mins after symptoms and can then return to bed. Unfortunately I don't sleep much due to the Tramadol.

    Cutting out the alcohol doesn't change the situation.

    Good luck

    A glass of wine or beer used to upset me for a long time 24 to 48 hours.

    Since I've been on the FODMAP diet I can take a bit of alcohol with either no effect or with just a short term effect like a couple of hours which can be relieved by walking,

    I thought I remembered that alcohol was forbidden while I was on drugs for RLS.   Is that right?
