Q. I want to let you know about something that stunned me. I have suffered from restless leg syndrome (RLS) for nearly 35 years. A friend casually mentioned that pie cherries had helped her leg pain and thought maybe they would help my RLS.
I was skeptical since I have tried many treatments including medications. I had been on Mirapex for years and recently had to increase the dose. Nevertheless, RLS was troubling me day and night.
I started eating pie cherries (about two dozen with their juice) each day. I have not had RLS for two weeks since I began.
A. Thanks for sharing your story. People also tell us that pie cherries may sometimes ease gout pain.
