Findings from a small sample study link small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) to restless leg syndrome.
An uncommon variant of the PDE11A gene impacts both quality and duration of sleep. Genetic regions linked to sleep quality are also associated with serotonin production. The study also reveals those with the same hip circumference and a higher waist circumference sleep less, although the effect is small.
Researchers report, in restless leg syndrome, neurons targeting muscles may be responsible.
A new study implicates structural changes in the somatosensory cortex as a cause of restless leg syndrome.
A new study links restless leg syndrome to poor quality sleep and poor daytime function in pregnant women. RLS is common in pregnant women, especially in the third trimester. It is estimated up to 36% of women suffer RLS at some point during pregnancy. Researchers say identifying and treating RLS could help alleviate some of the burden of the symptoms.
Researchers at Northwestern University report older adults who suffer from sleep disturbances such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome might enjoy a better night's sleep by cultivating a purpose in life.
Researchers have identified a genetic link between a diverse array of health disorders and sleep problems.
A new study will assess people to find out whether their sleep disorders are capable of being passed on to their children.
Fatigue associated with MS could be the result of widely undiagnosed sleep disorders, a new study reports.
Using neuroimaging, researchers discovered glutamate levels are abnormally high in people with restless leg syndrome. The higher the level of glutamate in patients with RLS, the less sleep they were able to get.
