Do they develope at the same time? I have had migraines since I was about 5 or 6 and I have RLS but I am not sure when that started. I recognized it when I was a teen.....But my mom said I was ALWAYS hard to sleep with because I was never still....
My daughter has had migraines since she was in 2nd grade...but at this time I know of no other conditions that she has....

No, they don't have to develop at the same time. Co-morbid condition justs means they've seen that people with migraine have a higher prevalence of developing one or more of the aforementioned conditions throughout their lives.

Take care,

That's not exactly encouraging considering the situations my 17 year old daughter has been through while trying to find meds to prevent migraines....she was taking Topamax and started having "seizure-like" spells. So she had to get off of it...then she took something else (I forget the name at this time) which caused other problems (possible halucinations, parinoia and such) so she couldn't take that either.
Sounds like RLS is the LEAST of what could happen....mine got so bad that I cannot function if not for the Requip....

I think I have low thyroid and that this is contributing to the migraines.
