Re: new diagnosis child

Are there any pre-teen with RLS parents willing to talk to me? I have basic questions: how do you help your child fall asleep? what do you do when he/she is bothered by legs in school? are there any emotional issues your child has you can relate to RLS? etc.
thanks in advance,

Re: new diagnosis child

Yes, I did send a message to somno@verizon.com. It returned as undeliverable, unfortunately.
We know now my daughter's serum ferritin level which is 31. Some sites have that as a normal. Others have 50.

Re: new diagnosis child

Thank you very much for your replies. I did read most info available on line. they usually describe a general case that my daughter fits only to an extent. so your individual accounts are very helpful. We are learning what RLS is, how to help our daughter, and cope with it as parents.

Re: new diagnosis child

We haven't seen a specialist yet -- have our first appointment with a neurologist at Children's Hospital in Boston in February. If you have experience with pediatric RLS, can I ask a few questions?

Could someone with more experience with pediatric RLS, please, take us through the basics? No one in the extended family seems to have RLS. My daughter has an urge to stretch but not when ...
