What is restless legs syndrome?
This is also known as Willis-Ekbom disease and has been affecting as many as one in ten people for generations. It is a condition of the nervous system that feels like you have a creeping itch moving through your legs creating a need to move them or twitch them to get rid of it. We have all felt fidgety and uncomfortable at times but restless legs syndrome can have consequences for the sufferer who often has interrupted sleep. It mainly happens at night and so is known as a sleep disorder but can occur when at rest during waking hours when trying to relax watching a film or studying for example. It is an unpleasant feeling and the constant sleep interruption can create frustration in the sufferer.
This syndrome is very subjective, it can vary from person to person and from night to night as there are different degrees of how severe this condition can be. The feeling that is given is also very individual, some may describe it as an itch you just can’t scratch, others as a tingling sensation or a buzzing feeling within the legs. This is relieved with the movement of the legs however, it is this movement which is often a jolt that wakes the sufferer up and interrupts their sleep. It is this sleep interruption which causes frustration and can lead to anxiety. We all need rest and without it our bodies and our minds become very tired and we can get easily agitated by the smallest of things.
So what causes Restless legs Syndrome?
In the majority of cases it is often not known what the cause of the condition is, there has been some indication that there is a genetic link but this may not be so in all circumstances. There is research to suggest that this syndrome has something to do with how the body handles dopamine, which is the chemical that controls muscle movement. Where there is no cause this is known as primary restless legs syndrome.
The syndrome can also occur and be linked to other conditions such as vitamin deficiency and kidney disease and can also occur during pregnancy.
