Restless Legs

I am a Nursing Sister that spends hours on my feet. I believe I have restless legs syndrome (RLS) as I have most of the sysmptoms. I have had this for as long as I can remember. (My older sister suffers as well.) I find if I take two Mypradols or two Genpaynes before bed its not a problem. I am a bit concerned to rely on medication. Your opinion please.

Many people with RLS have a problem with low transferrin. Get iron studies done. If any of the measurements are low, it might be worthwhile trying to use iron supplements - that sometimes helps. Otherwise you might find that small doses of Pexola (0.125mg) at night is often very useful.
