Restless Legs Syndrome
Women with RLS are more likely to have cardiovascular-related comorbidities than those without RLS.
For patients with restless leg syndrome, opioids may be very beneficial if taken in low daily doses.
Gabapentin enacarbil (Gen) administered once daily to patients with severe primary RLS significantly improved sleep, mood, pain, and quality of life.
Musculoskeletal pain, especially in the shoulder/arm and leg, is significantly associated with RLS.
Risk appeared to be correlated with RLS disease duration.
People with restless leg syndrome may have an increased stroke risk.
Gabapentin enacarbil will be used in a clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness it will have for alcohol abusers
Middle-aged people with a history of migraine with aura were twice as likely to be diagnosed with Parkinson's, though a lack of formal diagnosis weakened the study's results.
