What is Restless Leg Syndrome?

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, often accompanied by uncomfortable sensations such as tingling, burning, or itching. These sensations typically worsen during periods of inactivity, especially at night, leading to difficulty in falling or staying asleep. Venous insufficiency is an often-overlooked cause of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). Several studies indicate that as many as 22 percent of those with RLS also have venous insufficiency. When restless legs occur with venous insufficiency, the RLS can be improved significantly. A study published in the Journal of Phlebology reported that in patients with both RLS and venous disease, 98 percent had their RLS symptoms relieved with vein treatment and 80 percent experienced long-term relief. Patients who are experiencing symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) are encouraged to set up a consultation with a StrideCare vein specialist.
