More about Restless Leg Syndrome

RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME IS A MEDICAL CONDITION THAT VERY LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT.

Researchers aren’t sure what causes it, but leading theories suggest venous insufficiency, as well as nerve-related health problems, may be to blame.

Regardless of the underlying cause, the condition can make trying to fall asleep at night uncomfortable at best, and impossible at worst. WebMD says patients with restless leg syndrome often report “pinching,” “itching” and “pins and needles” sensations when they lay down. Moving the legs or stretching them tends to make the problem less noticeable, but the need to constantly move prevents adequate sleep.

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who is suffering from this condition but has not been able to find adequate relief, you may want to consider a form of vein therapy. Treatments like endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy have proven effective in addressing this issues.

That being said, every patient is different, and it’s crucial to meet with a qualified vein specialist in order to determine what plan of treatment will best meet your individual needs. The caring, compassionate professionals at Alabama Vein Center regularly assist patients with RLS and can do the same for you.
