In brief: Restless legs

Restless legs syndrome can be due to other underlying medical cconditions such as iron deficiency, peripheral neuropathy, varicose veins or thyroid disease.
Treating the underlying cause may relieve restless legs. Dopaline agonists such as pramipexole, or Gabapentin often help. But there is no such thing as the best treatment that uniformly works well in every single case.
