Restless Leg Syndrome Q & A

What is restless legs syndrome?

Restless legs syndrome is a condition where uncomfortable sensations in your legs can be relieved only by shifting or massaging your legs. Many factors contribute to restless legs syndrome, including vein disease. 

Vein disease can irritate and inflame the muscles and soft tissue in your legs, leading to uncomfortable sensations. Some studies show that many patients with vein disease also experience restless legs syndrome.

What are the symptoms of restless legs syndrome?

Restless legs syndrome can cause a variety of uncomfortable or painful feelings. You might have a creeping or crawling sensation, or your legs might ache or throb. You might have a tingling or electrical sensation. 

Restless legs syndrome is usually worse at night while you relax at home or you’re trying to go to sleep. The condition interferes with your quality of sleep, which contributes to daytime fatigue, irritability, and other health problems.

When should I talk to a doctor about restless legs syndrome?

Even if you don’t have other symptoms of vein disease, the team at Dallas Vein Institute can help. If you have restless legs syndrome symptoms that are keeping you up at night and disrupting your quality of life, make an appointment today. Delaying diagnosis and treatment means living with your symptoms that much longer.
