I don't think you can get RLS from Neuropathy but i think a underlying cause could.
I don't think mine is from RLS though i can see where maybe a low iron or kidney disease may present with the symptoms of RLS,
just thinking out loud

Please see a Dr to make sure it is from RLS!

I think most of the pain is from overuse,our muscles don't seem to ever get a break!

Mine is under control and my pain is next to nothing.

Great article,

Earley is my RLS Dr!

Anyway i also like the "bouquet" of meds,

thanks for sharing.
