Restless Leg Syndrome

The symptoms of this condition are described as pins and needles, a crawling sensation, or cramping mainly in the calves but sometimes noted in the thighs or arms. The sensation generally occurs during rest and inactivity and is quickly relieved by walking or moving the legs. When a person with RLS tries to go to sleep, the tingling causes them to get up and move about to relieve symptoms. Then they can't get back to sleep, causing insomnia. RLS is most common in middle-aged women, pregnant women, and people with severe kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and nerve diseases (neuropathy). Restless leg syndrome has also been reported to occur in people with varicose veins and to be relieved when the varicose veins are treated. Some studies have shown that an iron deficiency and/or folic acid deficiency (vitamin B) are involved in a number of cases.
