What is Restless Leg Syndrome and How Does It Affect My Veins?

Restless leg syndrome is a condition that causes an urge to move the legs around to feel comfortable. These symptoms often occur at night when patients are at rest. If you’re tired of this problem interfering with a good night’s sleep, read on to learn more about how this condition may be managed. At Rosen Vein Care, a vein clinic in the North Shore area of Chicago, we want to make sure all patients understand conditions that are affecting their veins.

With venous insufficiency, blood pools in the legs, often causing symptoms like pain, fatigue, itching, burning, cramping, restlessness and throbbing that are similar to those experienced by people with restless leg syndrome.

Managing the symptoms of this condition and the underlying medical issues that are causing restless leg can help improve your quality of life. During the consultation, Dr. Rosen reviews your medical history in a thorough way. For many patients, especially those who are symptomatic, the initial office consultation may include the need to do an ultrasound examination.

In many cases, the varicose and spider veins at the surface, along with symptoms, may have a source that can’t be seen by the naked eye. An ultrasound exam offers a painless but very informative way to see beneath the surface and identify vein problems that ultimately may be treatable and curable.

Vein Treatment for Restless Leg

If underlying issues are identified by ultrasound exam within veins in the superficial venous system, such issues may be treatable NON-SURGICALLY: state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive procedures such as Endovenous Laser AblationClarivein®VenaSeal® and Sclerotherapy have been shown to be safe, effective and comfortable. Many procedures may be covered by insurance & Medicare.
