Restless Leg Syndrome

Signs that You May Have Restless Leg Syndrome


Restless leg syndrome, or RLS, is a disorder that is characterized by sensations in the legs that can make it tough to fall asleep. It has been discovered that RLS is linked to venous disease and treating defective veins will often deliver alleviation to those who experience RLS. Here are some indication that could signify that you are going through RLS.

Leg Discomfort

People with RLS usually experience unpleasant sensations in their legs. These sensations may include itchiness, aching pains, tingling, or a feeling that something is crawling along the person’s legs. These feelings are often experienced in the lower legs, which is where varicose veins frequently occur. The symptoms of RLS tend to happen most often when a person is relaxing or attempting to fall asleep. Lengthy plane trips or other scenarios where someone must stay sitting for a long time may also trigger the signs and symptoms of RLS.

Urge To Move

Another indication of RLS is a compulsion to move the legs. This desire to shift the legs is frequently linked to the discomfort described above. Those who are afflicted by RLS may find that shifting their legs can help alleviate the uncomfortable feelings. These movements can also happen involuntarily. The desire to move could lead those with RLS to continuously shake or kick their legs, particularly while attempting to fall asleep. Many people with RLS can also find relief by walking, massaging, or stretching out their legs.

Trouble Sleeping

The need to constantly shift the legs makes it challenging for those with RLS to fall and remain asleep. This may lead to drowsiness and a loss of concentration through the day.
