RLS affects 10-15% of the general population.
Many believe there is a relationship between Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) and varicose veins as healthy veins return blood to the heart. When patients experience vein failure (varicose veins), blood begins to flow backwards toward the feet, causing blood to pool in these unhealthy veins. This can lead to a buildup of toxic metabolic waste, which can cause aching, throbbing, cramping, fatigue and symptoms of RLS including an irresistible urge to move one’s body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations.
