How you can combat restless leg syndrome
We need to talk about it
If restless leg syndrome sounds like something only excited kids before Christmas experience, think again. It’s a real thing – and it can seriously affect your sleep, as well as your general life.
Restless leg syndrome causes
‘Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) can arise in certain medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, under active thyroid and kidney disease. However, it can also affect people who don’t suffer from these conditions,’ says Silentnight’s sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan.
In such cases , it can be caused by a deficiency of magnesium so taking a good magnesium supplement at bedtime can really help.’
And, natural health company BetterYou, explain that as many as 1 in 10 people are affected by RLS at some point in their life and 1 in 4 people diagnosed with RLS experience sleep disturbance, so, yeah, we should talk about it.
Restless leg syndrome symptoms
According to a case study by BetterYou, symptoms include ‘crawling sensations, painful leg cramps and the irresistible urge to move your legs.’ And it seems that women are twice as likely to develop it than men (according to NHS Choices). It’s also more common in women of middle age and around one in five women develop it while pregnant or after childbirth. And, in younger patients, it can sometimes be misdiagnosed as growing pains.
