How to diagnose restless legs syndrome?

A complete sleep record can show that the person is shaking his legs during the night, but not always.

Pregnant women often have iron deficiency and supplementation can sometimes be beneficial. So need Restless Leg Syndrome Treatment Houston on time.

How is syndrome evolving?

 The evolution varies considerably from person to person, but in general, restless leg syndrome is chronic and progressive for most people. The onset of symptoms in patients younger than 30 years of age will tend to be more insidious and it is possible that RLS, in these cases, may become a source of complication only later. Patients 50 years of age or older with RLS will experience more sudden onset of symptoms. In some patients, RLS may occur intermittently and may end in spontaneous remission for several years.

Unfortunately, for the most severe cases, people with RLS will also suffer from sleep disorders. A person can accumulate on average less than 5 hours of sleep per night and suffer from chronic sleep deprivation. This lack of chronic sleep can in turn lead to a series of disorders that must be taken seriously: depression, anxiety, heart problems, diabetes, etc.
