Restless Leg Syndrome keeping you awake at night? USA Vein Clinics can help. According to the American Sleep Foundation one in ten adults in the US suffers from Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) which affects their sleep at night. Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder characterized by an urge to move the legs. Symptoms of RLS include itchy, burning and tingling sensation. The symptoms of RLS usually occur at night and can affect your sleep schedule. Chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins can cause symptoms of RLS and in these instances; addressing underlying venous disease can help patients find relief from restless legs. Besides leg pain the symptoms include throbbing, pulling or creeping sensations in the legs often accompanied by an uncontrollable urge to move them. These symptoms may get worse at night leading to lack of sleep and exhaustion. Sleep deprivation can result in daytime fatigue affecting work performance and the ability to concentrate. RLS become frequent and last longer with age. Yet, many people suffering from the symptoms of RLS don’t seek medical help as they consider restless legs to be natural part of aging; not recognizing  that restless legs can be a sign of an underlying vein disease which if left untreated can lead to serious complications.
