: : I wondered if Restless leg is associated with Parkinson's Disease? I noticed some earlier posts that mention Sinemet as a treatment which is widely used for the treatment of Parkinson's Disease.

: From what I understand, no. It'sjust that they think it originates in the brain too, and some Parkinson's drugs do help.

The Parkinson's drugs tell the brain to "quiet" down limbs...thus, it calms RLS (which I have, and do take levo/carbadopa)
