: I was just diagnosed with RLS, although throughout my entire life I have had aching in my legs and arms. My pediatrician when I was little said that these were just growing pains. After being sick for the past year and not being able to figure out everything, this was our most recent discovery. In addition to RLS, I have also been severely anemic. My anemia even required intravenous infusions of iron weekly. I was also diagnosed several months ago with sleep apnea. This is all very new to me and I am only 20 years old. Anyone have any comments suggestions for anything at all?
reply: RLS is a symptom of anemia and is also directly related to sleep apnea. Your iron infusions should help ease it some, but you could also try liquid clorophyll from a health food store as it seems to help some people better than iron supplements.
