Hi, first of all sorry for all my mistakes but english is my second language and theres a huge medical and technical terms so treat me gently...🤗
I’m suffered rls since my 13. I’m 48 now. Just 6 months ago i found a doctor who really are an expert on rls. But I don’t find it in my country. I live in Chile and the doctor works in Spain. So he treat me through Skype.
Believe me. He knows and inverigate about rls more than any doctor in the US or UK.
His name is Diego García-Borreguero. Google it and you will found a lot of papers and studies results. Unfortunately for you the most are in Spanish.
Ok, go to my case. I have very very hi iron and ferritin levels on my blood. About 650. So i need lower levels because it’s dangerous. But i made all the exams and I don’t have any issue in my hart and liver.
But with this hi levels of iron i still have a severe rls symptoms.
So, he made me an exam with doctors here in Chile that can measure the iron levels in the Brain. And the result was that i have almost nothing of iron in my brain.
And this is the point that almost every doctor that treat rls don’t know. Is not the iron in the blood, is the capacity of the brain to absorb the iron in the blood. They even don’t know that exist an exam that measure that.
Si now I’m reducing my ferritine levels to lower than normal to get an special iron infusion with some componet that help to be absorbed by the Brain and check about 3 moths later if the iron levels in the Brain are higher.
So that’s it. Ask your doctor or find a good one who really now about rls and the new discovered treatments. And seriously, it could be everywhere in the world.
