In brief: See a specialist

Rls can be debilitation for some.
It can affect just the legs or even arms and trunk. It primarily occurs at night and with inactivity, is temporarily improved with movement and accompanied by an urge to move. If mild, common tips are to avoid nicotine, caffeine, and insufficient sleep. Some people with RLS have low levels of iron. See a specialist for thorough evaluation if concerned.

In brief: See a phlebologist

An often overlooked cause of restless legs syndrome (rls) is venous insufficiency.
If you have RLS and varicose veins, treating your vein problem might very well make your RLS go away.
