restless leg syndrome tampaIf you are living with Restless Leg Syndrome going to sleep can be a dreadful time. You lay down, try and get comfortable, and sure enough, just as soon as you begin to drift off your leg or legs start twitching, jarring you awake again.

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is usually caused by an iron deficiency. RLS, however, physicians are finding that it can also be brought on due to damaged veins in the legs and chronic venous insufficiency.

As the relationship between varicose veins and RLS becomes more apparent, more and more people suffering are able to find relief for their symptoms through vein treatment. RLS can only be halted if you cure the root cause.

Get the Facts on Restless Leg Syndrome

It is a progressive disease – symptoms can worsen over time if not treated.

It is a spectrum disease – severity of symptoms varies from patient to patient.

It can be a primary or secondary disease – It can appear on its own independent of other conditions or as a result of another condition.

It can appear at any age.

It is more common in women than in men.

Varicose veins are fairly easily treatable. Because of this, many patients report relief immediately from their RLS symptoms simply by taking care of their veins.

Endovenous ablation therapy is a modality of treatment in which heat is applied to the problem vein using either laser or radio frequencies. This procedure serves to close and eventually dissolve the problem veins and is relatively painless and minimally invasive, causing very little interruption in the patient’s daily life. Patients can also help themselves immensely in their daily lives simply by remaining active, exercising frequently, maintaining a healthy diet and weight, elevating their legs when sitting or laying down, and refraining from smoking cigarettes.

If you are experiencing RLS symptoms such as burning, itching, or a feeling that bugs are crawling underneath the skin, then a consultation with a vascular specialist may be your first step in seeking information and relief.
