In most cases, restless leg syndrome and venous insufficiency go hand-in-hand.
What Is Restless Leg Syndrome?
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is characterized by a persistent, uncontrollable urge to move one's legs, often accompanied by uncomfortable sensations in the legs, such as tingling, burning, or aching. The causes of restless leg syndrome are multifactorial and often elusive. In some cases, underlying venous insufficiency is the primary cause of restless leg syndrome. However, symptoms typically get worse when sitting or lying down and at night. We recommend that if you have symptoms of restless leg syndrome and visible veins, you should consider an evaluation from an experienced and qualified vein doctor.
