What is Restless Leg Syndrome?

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) causes a powerful urge to move your legs. Your legs become uncomfortable when you are lying down or sitting. Some people describe it as a creeping, crawling, tingling or burning sensation. Moving makes your legs feel better, but not for long.

In some people with restless legs syndrome, anemia or vitamin deficiency may be a contributing factor, while in others restless legs syndrome has been linked to diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney failure, varicose veins or peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the hands and feet). An examination by Dr. Kimmel will determine if RLS can be helped in our Boca Raton vein treatment center.
