5 Strategies To Combat Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

If you have leg discomfort that gets worse at rest, at night or you feel like you have to just constantly move your legs, you could be suffering from restless legs syndrome. Anyone can experience restless leg syndrome but it's common in pregnant women as the body is going through many changes as well as having several nutrient deficiencies.⁣ ⁣ 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐬 𝐬𝐲𝐧𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐞 (𝐑𝐋𝐒), also known as Willis-Ekbom disease, can begin at any age and generally worsens as you age. It can disrupt sleep, which interferes with daily activities.⁣ ⁣ The chief symptom is an urge to move the legs. Common accompanying characteristics of RLS include:⁣ ⁣ • 𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐧 𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭. The sensation typically begins after you've been lying down or sitting for an extended time, such as in a car, airplane or movie theater.⁣ ⁣ • 𝐑𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐟 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭. The sensation of RLS lessens with movement, such as stretching, jiggling your legs, pacing or walking.⁣ ⁣ • 𝗪𝐨𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐲𝐦𝐩𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠. Symptoms occur mainly at night.⁣ ⁣ • 𝐍𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐠 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠. RLS may be associated with another, more common condition called periodic limb movement of sleep, which causes your legs to twitch and kick, possibly throughout the night, while you sleep.⁣ ⁣ SNU Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Neha, provides details on RLS, what to look for, why it happens, and somethings you can do and look out for so that you can combat restless leg syndrome!
