CHECK FOR COMMON PROBLEMS FIRST
- Some patients with RLS have underlying conditions which can be treated to relieve their RLS symptoms
- The basic tests done by the GP may miss these
- Because of this some sufferers are needlessly taking medications
We have identified some simple blood tests which can be done as a fingerprick test which will rule out most of these underlying conditions.
To make it easy for you, these can be done at home, using Medichecks, one of the best online blood testing services in the UK.
If the results are out of normal range you can discuss the results with your GP; a problem revealed can usually be readily treated by the GP.
If a common underlying condition is part of your problem, your RLS should get better once it is treated. If not, or if the tests are all normal, we will be happy to see you for treatment.
