Restless Leg Syndrome

 

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is believed to be associated with several factors including peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson's disease, hereditary factors, iron deficiency and other neurologic disorders. Some studies have shown that 1 out of 5 patient with RLS also have venous insufficiency as determined by color Doppler ultrasound.  Several of the symptoms associated with RLS are also related to venous insufficiency including burning, tingling sensations and the uncontrollable urge to move the legs at night. In those patients that had both RLS and venous insufficiency studies have shown as much as a 98% reduction in symptoms after treatment of the venous insufficiency and 80% of those had lasting long term relief of RLS symptoms - Information via the Journal of Phlebology.
