Restless Legs and Swollen Feet
What Do They Mean?
Restless Legs and Swollen Feet – What Do They Mean?
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move your legs. This movement often relieves patients from uncomfortable or abnormal sensations on their legs and feet.
While moving your feet can ease these odd sensations, it only works as a temporal relief. RLS can impact patients’ quality of life by disrupting their sleep and daily activities.
Varicose veins are one of the primary contributors to restless leg syndrome. In many cases, these twisted and swollen veins are the source of discomfort. Fortunately, surgery is no longer the only option to treat vein conditions. Minimally invasive procedures can manage vein conditions effectively and without the need for hospitalization.
At the Center for Advanced Care, we have years of experience performing minimally invasive vein treatments successfully. Contact us today and get a free screening.
Varicose Veins and Restless Leg Syndrome
Although restless leg syndrome is considered to be a disorder of the nervous system, many of its symptoms are associated with varicose veins. Varicose veins treatments have proven to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of RLS on patients successfully.
Although there are no specific tests to diagnose restless leg syndrome, these are some of the signs and syndromes that doctors look at to diagnose it:
- You have an uncontrollable urge to move your legs, usually due to an unpleasant sensation in the legs.
- The sensation usually begins while you are inactive, or after you’ve been lying down or sitting for a long time.
- Your symptoms get better when you move.
- Your symptoms get worse at night.
