Q. For a long time I had trouble keeping my legs still, especially while I was trying to sleep at night. I did not seek treatment from my doctor because I did not want to take medication.
Then I read an article that said one of the health conditions causing this was an iron deficiency. My cousin told me she was taking iron twice a day and it helped ease her restless legs.
My husband was taking iron pills for a deficiency, so I borrowed a few and tried them. I could tell a difference within two days. I am grateful for such an easy remedy.
A. Iron deficiency has been linked to restless leg syndrome (RLS). Correcting this mineral deficiency may help ease the symptoms (Geriatrics, Oct. 2007).
