RLS Foundation hosting a Patient Symposium

Postby Rustsmith » Thu May 24, 2018 4:24 pm

For those of you who are not members of the Foundation, you should know that they are hosting a Patient Symposium in San Diego, CA in September. There will be presentations on a number of RLS topics and many of the big names in research and treatment of RLS will be there. Here is your chance to meet and talk to Dr Earley, Dr Allen, Dr Winkleman, Dr Bachfuhrer and many others.

What great news! The first time they had one, I went. I was in such a horrible place. I met Dr B and others and for the first time felt hopeful. Truly changed my life.

And, what great news that I am close by! Will definitely see if we are in town and if so, I will be there!

I just registered for this symposium. What a great opportunity to meet the specialists. I coordinated this with my appointment with Dr. Poceta. My daughter is coming with me in place of my husband. She has shown the beginnings of RLS and I am sure she will benefit also. I hope there will be members of this forum attending.

2bassetmom, your daughter should get her serum ferritin checked. If it is low it may be contributing to her rls onset.

You are right! Thanks for the reminder. I'm having routine blood work done tomorrow and I will ask specifically for a ferritin level check. I have been on an iron supplement since April.
