: : : Sorry to barge in but NBC this morning had
a piece on RLS with a Doctor claiming most Docs
are unfamilar with the disease. He further stated
that once accurately diagnosed that treatment
with Dopamine results in a large sucess rate.

: : : I don't know anything about RLS it but
thought I'd pass this on for whatever ~~~~~ maybe
helpful. Bye.

: : I've spent about two hours on the internet
trying to find this information out. It's not
listed on any NBC web information that I can
find. Does anyone know any more? Like who is the
doctor? Does he have a web site or a book?

: If you think that you may have RLS you will
probably want to make an appt.with a neurologist.
: Some specialize in sleep disorders.I had a
sleep study test done and was diagnosed, I also
have severe leg cramps.There are many types of
medications.The lack of sleep catches up with you
eventually.I was recently injured in a car
accident due to lack of sleep. So please do look
into the problem further.
: Hope this helps. Chris

This is my first time here so I apologize if I am not doing this correctly. The doctor on tv who was talking about RLS is Dr. Timothy Johnson and he has been a health advisor on tv for many years. He has always seemd to have logical and sound advice. I came here looking for more information on the treatment of RLS through the use of medicine commonly used for Parkinson's Disease that Dr. Tim was talking about but I didn't find anything about it either. I'll keep checking back but if anyone has any more information I'd love to hear from you.
