Is there a relationship between Parkinsons Disease and Restless Leg Syndrome?

Parkinson Information

Question by MARK: Is there a relationship between Parkinsons Disease and Restless Leg Syndrome?
I was curious to know if there have been studies done tying Parkinsons Disease and RLS together? Is it possible for a person who has RLS to get Parkinson’s later on in life? Thank you for whatever information you can give me. I don’t have Parkinson’s but I do have RLS, especially at night when I am trying to sleep. I also have sleep apnea and rapid eye movements. This was all diagnosed at the Sleep Lab years ago. Please, God, help people who have Parkinson’s Disease.

    I am not aware of any specific ties, but since the meds approved for RLS are parkinson’s drugs, I’d have to say yes. Interestingly, Parkinson’s may be related to toxin exposure. The reason for this thinking is that nearly 50% of parkinson’s patients can recall some exposure to various substances in their lifetime, and some substances affect the same area of the brain the parkinson’s affects, resulting in movement disorders indistinguishable from parkinson’s
