Many patients with vein disease complain of a sensation of restlessness, or the constant urge to move their legs. These symptoms occur more often at night, and could be the result of inefficient blood flow in the legs because of poorly functioning veins. This condition is formally referred to as restless leg syndrome (RLS), and it affects approximately 15% of Americans.
If you have been diagnosed with restless leg syndrome (RLS), or if you have noticed the frequent sensation of restlessness in your legs, your symptoms might be due to undiagnosed vein disease. The vein specialists at Hamilton Vein Center can perform an ultrasound to determine if your symptoms are due to underlying vein disease and recommend the best treatment for you.
The good news is that people with vein disease and chronic restless legs see immediate improvement in their symptoms after underlying vein disease is treated. In fact, a recent study showed that over 90% of patients with vein disease and RLS noted significant improvement in their symptoms following treatment.
Take the RLS survey now to see if you might have restless leg syndrome that can be helped by treating the underlying vein disease:
