Relaxis – Restless Legs Syndrome
Primary RLS is the most common type of RLS. It can be referred to as familial (because it is sometimes hereditary) or idiopathic (because the causes are unknown) RLS and symptoms occur 3 or more times a week.
Secondary RLS is believed to be caused by a separate underlying medical condition or in association with the use of certain drugs. Some of these conditions include varicose veins, kidney failure, low levels of iron or anemia, pregnancy, and peripheral neuropathy. Stress, diet or other environmental factors can also play a role in developing secondary Restless Leg Syndrome.
Most people with RLS have difficulty falling or staying sleeping. Left untreated, the condition causes exhaustion and daytime fatigue and can cause marked impairment in quality of life.
