Watching programme on tv about restless legs. Difficult to watch so much suffering.
My neurologist is a specialist in sleep disturbances and treats my restless legs with iron tablets. The brain of people with restless legs seems to need more iron which works as a co-enzyme on the dopamine system. The usual tests for iron deficiency don’t indicate deficiency. Ferritin is more helpful but people with restless legs need a level that is mid to high.
When I notice my legs getting restless, I pop some iron pills and eat a few steaks.
