Many people with RLS also suffer from a different but associated condition. An example is Fibromyalgia, a chronic condition that causes intense pain all over the body, as well as a host of other symptoms. In a 2008 study, 64% of participants with Fibromyalgia also had RLS.
I am currently updating the RLS-UK website and would be interested to hear from any of you who have an associated condition and in particular to hear details of how the two of these conditions combined affect you. If you would like to provide details, please do so below or send a message to me. I assure you that messages will be treated in the strictest confidence and I will only use your comment as an example but I will not identify you personally.
