What is the cause of restless leg syndrome?

Report as

My friend I am not an expert, But I know what is its cause and what is its solution. This I find by my own. From my own observation the legs problems is link with our back and buttock area. You have to try to keep your back straight or bend it to front side not backward, I mean not bent it like old people just opposite to it. Or when you watching TV or anything just laying on your front, I mean your back have to be toward sky. just try it daily or any time for 1 or 2 or 3 or 10 minutes or 1hour as much you can. But please dont hurt yourself, just start it from very minimum then you can increase the duration when your body will use to it.
Thanks be happy.

sometimes it's over activity, or under activity. Also sometimes it can be from stress, any anxiety or pressures. He's right. Doing some research would help a lot.

Restless Leg Syndrome is a vicious, destroyer of lives if left uncontrolled. I believe it is caused by the over excitement of nerves for some, currently, unknown reason. In my case, it was hereditary. My grandmother died from dementia. Her son was epileptic. Another son, my father, suffered from RLS for decades. Finding the right combination of pharmaceuticals is the only answer I can offer...Earl Stubbs

I have had it off and on for years, but accidentally found what I think is a solution for myself. When I lay down at night, and my leg gets restless, I take 2 St. John Wort, and it seems to subside. Don't know if that is a coincidence.

Go to WebMD and search for restless leg syndrome. There is quite a lot of information there.

Magnesium works great if you're looking for relief from restless leg syndrome.

Ahmad has very good advice. Keep your back strong(don't overdo it) and flexible with good posture. Stress, overwork and chocolate at bedtime will cause mine to flare up, sometimes even in my arms!

Some doctors believe restless leg syndrome, may be caused by an allergic reaction to certain food colorings, preservatives or dyes. Doing an elimination diet, can help determine this, or allergy testing. Allergies to food additives, might explain why the symptoms come and go and do not always respond to treatment. In some cases, it might be an epileptic or neurological condition, or many other conditions. For more information, go to http://www.webmd.com/brain/restless-legs-syndrome/rls-causes. Take care

RLS is thought to happen due to over active mussels and nerves. My family has a long history of it. My grandparents have it, both my dad and his brother have it, and me and most of my cousins have it. What I find to help is when it starts just stand up and it will stop then just go back to bed, I have to stand up so much in the night that I do it in my sleep most of the time not really knowing that I am doing it.I don’t know if this really helps people but I have heard that some people will eat a table spoon of mustard and that it will help. But I have never tried it and don’t plan to ether.

My own experience was that a healthier diet and 3 months of acupuncture has cured what I suffered for years with. That plus staying away from antihistamines, sleeping pills, and certain antidepressants. I have been free from the RLS for 17 months and am sleeping so much better-Praise God!:)

Quick answer is: Deep Nerve problem; see a Neurologist to get help.
My experience with RLS and positive treatment for it:
I've had RLS for many years, tried numerous herbal and self help remedies without success. As another person stated "in my arms sometimes also" (on bad days). RLS made it impossible for me to sleep, sitting only a few minutes (comfortably) before it began, only standing would give relief.
Several visits to family practitioners, physical therapy, and low-back trigger point injections later; it was only when a Neurologist prescribed Pregabalin, that it relieved it. I've been taking it for 6 years now, when I have forgotten to take it 3 times a day (missing the mid-day dose) for 2 or 3 days in a row, RLS reminds me it hasn't gone away.
Living with RLS without treatment just about drove me nuts (some would argue I made it to my destination;).
