Sometimes, patients will come in describing the feeling of the constant urge to move their legs. Many times, this is most prevalent at night. These patients are typically describing symptoms of restless leg syndrome (RLS), which affects 15% of Americans. When the blood is not flowing properly, moving one’s leg muscles may be the only way to pump blood around.
One of our expertly trained ultrasound techs can perform an ultrasound to determine if your leg restlessness is due to underlying vein disease. The good news is that people with chronic restless legs who have their underlying vein disease treated, see immediate improvement in their symptoms. Take the RLS survey:
