I have been diagnosed with RLS for a few years now and have acute symptoms, which cover most of my body. I wondered if anyone else who has RLS has also been diagnosed with ADHD or ADD?
I have suffered with ADHD like symptoms since I was a child and am now in my early 30’s but only started suffering RLS recently.
There is no link between the two conditions that I’m aware of but I have found research that suggests people with RLS who also suffer ADHD tend to have more severe RLS. I have tried so many different types of medications, treatments, dietary changes etc. but can’t find any relief to my RLS.
I am hoping that rather than focusing on my RLS and getting treatment for my ADHD symptoms may alleviate my RLS. Has anyone else tried this approach?
