I have read so many posts on this site regarding having your ferritin levels tested. (I don't even know what ferritin levels are)! I must Google it!
Please tell me, how do I go about doing that? Do I go thru my doctor or will I have to wait until I see my specialist in December and he will do the test for me?
The way that I actually found out that I had restless legs was quite phenomenal.
I overheard a work colleague having a conversation with a couple of others, and I noticed that he was actually speaking my language. I knew exactly what he was talking about and I just stood there and stared, and listen intently to be sure I had not overheard incorrectly. I believe I was somewhat in shock.
His first symptoms arose at 30. My heart bled .... not! He suggested, as my first port of call for medication, should be magnesium and calcium. and even before I visited a doctor I took his advice and for 6 blissful months,
for the first time in my life, I was completely free of RLS.
It was absolutely amazing, but it did, of course, unfortunately return, so that's when I eventually went to a doctor and started on my Madopar.
