Many of us suffering from rls symptoms, which may or may not actually be rls, but are nevertheless,very bothersome, may be interested in this bit of research.

When muscles weaken with age

Basically it is saying that older people get peripheral neuropathy as part of growing old- to do with macrophage cells and their activities or lack of- thereby leading to degeneration in our legs and arms.

This may be part of our story, along with all the other aspects of our miserable lives!🀣

Life just gets better and better then - Deep joy!😁

Thanks. I haven’t looked at the link yet but will as I have Small Fibre Neuropathy which is a type of Peripheral Neuropathy. Neither the RLS or the SFN started until I was 66 or so!

Old age is not for the meek

Interesting research. Of course they hope to find a drug to treat macrophage related problems. When I scanned the article and saw the word Martini I was hoping a cure had been found. Alas, it was one researchers name. Other research shows improvement, often total, with this protocol:

Well I was young when I started with both RLS first then couple of years later but I may be different as I also had trigeminal. Neuralgia very young almost everything and it’s a lot it all comes with nerve pain . I’m not looking forward to getting older .

Actually I’m going into denial right now and my body is too lol xxπŸ€—πŸ˜‡β€οΈ

I still don't have an official dx of rls, and I am heading in for another MRI to see about PN. To me the symptoms of not sleeping bc of the spasms and pain and now sometimes during the day are so similar if not the same. I stick around here for good info. The Drs treat PN the same as rls. DA's and such. Besides you all are the best bunch of folks to chat with. 😁
