A disorder characterized by sensations in the legs which compel movement. The sensations most often described as â€œcreepy-crawlyâ€, itchy, achy, prickly or boring. Typically, RLS does not involve pain. This disorder is most common in middle and older ages and affects 10-15% of the US population. RLS is most annoying at night and can cause trouble falling asleep, and/or repeated awakenings. RLS sufferers describe symptoms that are made worse by relaxation and which are relieved by activity. There are numerous causes for RLS such as intake of stimulants (including caffeine), side effects of some medications (i.e. beta blockers and antidepressants), alcohol, pregnancy, drug withdrawal, anemia, and chronic liver or kidney failure. Chronic venous insufficiency also appears to be a secondary cause of RLS. Many patients report improvement in or disappearance of their RLS symptoms after having saphenous vein ablation. Medications are also available for treatment of RLS.
