Think he's just checking to be on the safe side and make sure he's covered everything MB, I've never heard of RLS showing up in blood tests but who knows someone else may have :-D :-D :-D :-D

If there was something that showed up in a blood test MB, I think we would have heard about it as there are a fair number that suffer with them :-? :-? I think he's erring on the side of caution as well by having them done, just to be sure there isn't an :alien: :alien: :alien: pathogen on the loose :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

I'm going to sit back in my corner and rock very gently now :crazy: :crazy: :shock: :shock:

I read that Quinine can help with RLS, I bought some tonic water today to see if it does anything. Dubious though!
