Dear Sal, Go to new to RLS and read the sticky posts. Does your husband match the criteria for RLS? Yes untreated RLS can lead to depression, anxiety, I know first hand, and I was mis-diagnosed for many years. RLS in itself can run deeper than just the creepy crawly feelings, some of us experience a...
