Another Study - Thanks Foundation!

Postby ViewsAskew » Fri May 19, 2017 5:05 am

The Foundation's blog post is about a Yale study: ... -yale.html

We definitely need to learn more about the emotional stress and depression that is part of our territory. Best part? it is online so we can all participate! Or at least those with primary RLS can. And, grab a family member without RLS - they need controls.

"Researchers at Yale are conducting a study that delves into the emotional stress and depression associated with RLS. Dr. Koo's team is looking to study primary RLS, which occurs in the absence of diseases like Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, severe neuropathy, end-stage renal disease, schizophrenia, terminal cancer and others.

"The questionnaire study is entirely online, and participants will remain completely anonymous. The questionnaires will take roughly 20 minutes to complete."
