Great results

I never imagined that results could come this quickly! I've been taking the ferrous sulfate for only a month, and I have had very few RLS attacks. AND they were all MILD! It's great! That was my problem all along! I'm so glad I don't have to take Meds. You guys helped so much. I'm very thankful that...

Thanks so much for the replies, guys! You're so great! My stomach kills me with the ferrous sulfate, but I've decided to try to get my levels up to 50 before I try Miropex. Can't hurt, right? I'll go back in 2 months and get some lab work done. Doc gave me some stuff to take for my stomach. Hopefull...

Iron Deficient, do I have to take drugs too?

I have been tested with a ferritin level of 6, but I have all the energy I've always had! Shouldn't I be exhausted all the time? I thought, when I was tired during the day, that it was just from the RLS. I'm not anemic because my hemoglobin levels are fine. My doc prescribed Miropex, but I'm wonderi...
