I have been looking up stuff about RLS for a while, and nothing points towards bowel problems as a leading cause of RLS. I have suffered from RLS for many years, but only recently have I made the link between bowel problems and the incidence of RLS. Notably, constipation is present when RLS decides to revisit. This is by no means the ONLY circumstance in which RLS makes itself apparent, but I have noted similar bowel or stomach complaints exist when RLS rears its ugly head. I've had years of trying out quack medicines and vague interventions. None have worked. Only when my bowel problems have subsided do my RLS symptoms do the same.
So, think hard guys... does this make sense to you?
