I'm new on this forum
I started RLS when I reached the post menopausal stage, there is definitely a link with a lack of certain vitamins or iron which you do have at this stage. For the last couple of years I have taken paracetamol but now that doesn't work on its own so I have added a codeine tablet and that gets me to sleep. I have got so fed up with it the doctor has given me a blood test to check calcium levels, B12 and iron. Hope to get the results soon. Its almost every night now and its driving me crazy as I hate taking painkillers as its not really a pain is it.
