British Medical Journey RLS article "A patient's journey', published 20/11/12

In my opinion this is a wonderful, understanding, compassionate article which I'm very pleased to see the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has published.

The subject of the article has had RLS for 12 years and describes how doctors’ lack of knowledge about the condition delayed effective treatment; she urges patients and doctors alike to become better informed.

Thank you Daragh for sharing this link with us. This is the kind of information that should be in newpapers and magazines, radio, TV, so that others hear/read the real facts about RLS and how debilitating it can be for many. I hope doctors read that article and learn from it - some may.
