Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Varicose Veins

Multiple studies as well as clinical experience at various vein centers have shown a link between Restless Leg Syndrome and varicose veins. Although Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) can occur due to other causes such as nerve disorders and muscular causes, many patients with both varicose veins and RLS experience significant decrease or even resolution of their symptoms with treatment of their vein problems. Our experience at The Vein Center has agreed with these findings; we have noted improvement in RLS symptoms following vein treatment in approximately 75-80% of patients who also have vein problems. Many of the patients that we have treated have been able to discontinue medications and their sleep quality has improved dramatically.
