Restless legs

I am suffering terribly from resless legs and cant sleep at night. Is this perhaps from an iron deficiency? What medication can I take to ease it or prevent it. It is so frustrating. I do think I have a chemical imbalance as I suufer with panic/anxiety disorder, could it be from my dopimin levels? Please help...thanks''

Some people get restless legs from a problem with their iron metabolism. You can ask your doctor to run an iron profile on a blood test. Usually intravenous iron is recommended, but sometimes oral iron will work.

for your anxiety disorder you should see a psychiatrist.
