Hello, guys. I have a question to ask. Is it possible for patients with iron deficiency to develop restless leg syndrome? My cousin claims this is possible and I am not sure. I would like to hear what you know about this. I also hope my cousin is not right. Thank you in advance. Bye!

Hello. I must disappoint you in the beginning. Your cousin is right. Iron deficiency can cause restless leg syndrome. Even if anemia isn’t clinically present, RLS can appear due to iron deficiency. People, who donated their blood frequently, are in danger for anemia. Women with heavy periods are also in danger. Bleeding from bowels is another sign which can indicate anemia. I hope this helps. Don’t be mad on your cousin! Bye!
