Common Topics

Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) or Willis-Ekbom disease is a common overlapping condition to fibromyalgia. This is a big deal because we already deal with poor sleep and if we also have RLS we can treat that directly and probably improve our sleep. Improving sleep has been shown to also improve fibromyalgia symptoms overall. I was evaluated for RLS when I did my sleep study, but one is not required for a diagnosis. Like fibromyalgia, RLS is more common in women than in men and the science behind the condition is not yet fully understood.

To learn more about RLS, watch my interview below with Dr. Donnica Moore from the Choose Your Move: Take Control of RLS campaign. Besides being a doctor, she is women’s health expert and advocate.

Do you have RLS along with your fibromyalgia?
