Hi I haven't posted on here for a long time, but do follow the posts when I can.
I have read a lot on here about Ferritin levels affecting the severity of rls, so thought I would ask my GP to check mine. I told her that as far as I was aware the level for people with rls should be 70 - 100. Anyway, my level has come back as 31, which my GP has apparently said is absolutely normal. Do people think I should chase this up with GP or maybe take an iron supplement myself. I am hoping to attend the conference in September, so maybe I could also ask this question there.
Also, does anyone know why the maximum dose of Ropinirole licensed for rls was reduced. I currently take 4mg at night and 1mg in early hours of morning, and am doing reasonably ok on this. I do get problems in the day at times, but have always had this so don't think it is augmentation. My GP hasn't mentioned reducing this because of the change in license, I guess because I was on in prior to the change. I just wondered what the reason is.
