All About Restless Leg Syndrome: Symptoms, Causes, and Diagnosis

When it comes to restless leg syndrome and other vascular issues, Advanced Vascular Surgery is the area’s premier surgery center. With a range of cutting-edge equipment and leading technology, we’re able to work with our clients to understand their issues and pursue treatment options that may provide them with relief. Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is one of the most common issues that we encounter, a disease that causes a strong, unique urge to move your legs. While the symptoms are often different for each individual sufferer, one of the easiest ways to spot RLS is to recognize that symptoms are noticeably worse at night and often less severe – or not present – in the morning.

Diagnosis criteria

  • An inexplicable urge to move the legs, often paired with uncomfortable sensations
  • Urge appears or gets worse during periods of rest or inactivity
  • Urge is partially or wholly relieved by movement
  • Urge either begins or noticeably worsens later in the day
  • No other medical or behavioral condition known to cause any of the above four features
