Well not sure what this all means re my RLS but for now i could not be happier. My doctor did a blood test in December specifically for the Ferritin and long story short it was at 15. Got the iron tablets and about four weeks later another blood test showed them to be up to 40. We were both delighted at this and he has marked my records to say they have to be kept an eye on. I still have to go back for a third one to see how well its going but in the meantime i was sitting here the other night when something suddenly dawned on me. Despite some really wet weather ( my legs act as a weather warning for me) my legs had not twitched or annoyed me in some time. I felt a slight ache as if they were going to start last night for about half an hour but it came to nothing. I am still taking the Pramipexol and the iron tablets but the complete relief i have at the moment for the first time since i was a child and it all started is amazing. I don't know how long it will last but it just goes to prove how much this site helps. I knew nothing of the Ferritin levels until i joined this site and its only because i have gotten my info from here that i got them checked. I doubt if its a "cure" but in the last year it has helped so much in my and my GP's education and handling of this horrible affliction i would just like to say thank you to all of you and share the good news.
