Varicose Veins and Restless Legs
Restless legs can be really distressing.
They usually happen in the evening and can make sleeping really difficult. It feels like you don't know where to put the legs and they can be associated with a twitchy feeling so that the legs need to be moved frequently. The cause is not known and is probably multi factorial. Magnesium deficiency can be relevant for some people.
Of interest to Palm Clinic we have noted that many of our varicose veins patients also have restless legs and following treatment of the varicose veins with endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) or ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS), the restless legs syndrome has improved with treatment of the varicose veins.
