Is Restless Leg Syndrome Related to Varicose Veins?

Posted on December 2, 2015 · Posted in Blog

More than 10% of adults in the U.S. suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome. However, it is generally misdiagnosed as insomnia or other neurological, orthopedic or even muscular condition. In fact, restless legs are closely related to varicose veins.
Restless legs are characterized by the urge to move the legs constantly.
Symptoms of RLS can be reduced by treating the varicose veins. For this reason, if you are suffering from RLS, we suggest that you visit a vascular specialist for venous insufficiency. Ultrasound imaging will be performed, and the specialist will be able to explain the benefits of curing the veins, which in turn will help relieve the symptoms of RLS.
