Sleep Deprivation and Restless Legs (RLS)

While Restless Legs (RLS) does not usually directly lead to serious health consequences, that does not mean that it is harmless. While it is annoying for everyone afflicted, in many cases, if severe and persistent symptoms result, it can lead to considerable mental distress, insomnia and sleepiness throughout the day.

The cornerstone to relieving many of the symptoms of Restless Legs (RLS), may well be the proper use of CalmLegs®. Calm Legs® is made in the USA with all-natural ingredients. Numerous human clinical studies have shown that the active ingredients in the Calm Legs® formula can dramatically reduce symptoms of Restless Legs (RLS).

In this posting, we will take a closer look at some of the more consequential outcomes that can occur if Restless Legs (RLS) is not properly managed:

Sleep deprivation

Most anyone with Restless Legs (RLS) knows that sleep can be hard to come by. Perhaps the only thing worse than this insomnia, is the resultant daytime sleepiness and the associated mood disruption. Sadly enough, sleep deprivation is a major contributor to industrial accidents and motor vehicle crashes.

While perhaps not as dangerous, studies also show that sleeplessness can worsen performance on several key behaviors, to include:

  •  Concentration. Sleep deprivation impairs the brain’s ability to process information;
  •  Task performance. Missed sleep can negatively affect performance levels and mood: some say on par with that resulting from alcohol intoxication;
  •  Learning. The impact on learning has not been fully characterized. Nonetheless, some studies have shown difficulties in memorization.
Psychiatric implications and Restless Leg

Clinical research has demonstrated that patients with Restless Legs (RLS) are more prone to social isolation, frequent headaches, depression, reduced libido and sleepiness. It is a given that Restless Legs (RLS) contributes to insomnia. Aside from its own problems, insomnia can increase the activity of hormones and pathways in the brain responsible for the production of emotional issues. Restless Legs (RLS), may also lead to higher levels of anxiety that, may, in itself contribute to deeper levels of Restless Legs (RLS).

These worrisome consequences reinforce the need to successfully manage the symptoms of Restless Legs (RLS) in patients who suffer from this disease. CalmLegs™ is especially formulated with this task in mind.
