RESTLESS LEGS CAN MEAN SPRING TROUBLE!
If you have ever experienced restless legs for more than a few days at a time Now is the time to come into the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas and get it checked. Restless legs are an issue and can need medical attention!
According to many new studies conducted in patients with (RLS) and venous insufficiency, 98 percent of patients experienced relief from (RLS) symptoms by treating their venous insufficiency, and 80 percent had long-term relief.
Who Gets Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)?
Restless legs syndrome or what we refer to as (RLS) may affect up to 10 percent of the U.S. population. It affects both sexes, but is more common in women and may begin at any age, even in young children. Most people who are affected severely are middle-aged or older.
(RLS) is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed. This is especially true if the symptoms are intermittent or mild. Once correctly diagnosed, (RLS) can often be treated successfully. Left untreated it can lead to worse conditions. Here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas it is our specialty to diagnose and treat restless leg syndrome!
What are common signs and symptoms of restless legs?
People with (RLS) feel the irresistible urge to move, which is accompanied by uncomfortable sensations in their lower limbs that are unlike normal sensations experienced by people without the disorder. The sensations in their legs are often difficult to define but may be described as aching throbbing, pulling, itching, crawling, or creeping. Although the sensations can occur on just one side of the body, they most often affect both sides. They can also alternate between sides. The sensations range in severity from uncomfortable to irritating to painful.
Because moving the legs relieves the discomfort, people with (RLS) often keep their legs in motion to minimize or prevent the sensations. They may pace the floor, constantly move their legs while sitting, and toss and turn in bed.
A classic feature of (RLS) is that the symptoms are worse at night with a distinct symptom-free period in the early morning, allowing for more refreshing sleep at that time. Some people with (RLS) have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. They may also note a worsening of symptoms if their sleep is further reduced by events or activity.
(RLS) symptoms may vary from day to day, in severity and frequency, and from person to person. In moderately severe cases, symptoms occur only once or twice a week but often result in significant delay of sleep onset, with some disruption of daytime function. In severe cases of (RLS), the symptoms occur more than twice a week and result in burdensome interruption of sleep and impairment of daytime function.
People with (RLS) can sometimes experience remissions—spontaneous improvement over a period of weeks or months before symptoms re-appear, usually during the early stages of the disorder. In general, however, symptoms become more severe over time.
People who have both (RLS) and an associated medical condition tend to develop more severe symptoms rapidly. In contrast, those who have (RLS) that is not related to any other condition show a very slow progression of the disorder, particularly if they experience onset at an early age; many years may pass before symptoms occur regularly.
