Understanding Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome is a condition that causes individuals to feel an uncontrollable urge to move their legs, often because staying stationary creates an uncomfortable sensation. The feeling can drag on for as long as hours and up to days, and can occur while standing, sitting, or lying down. It’s unknown what actually causes RLS, but research seems to suggest that both genetic and biological factors in the brain may have a role. Other conditions, like peripheral neuropathy, kidney failure, or iron deficiency may also contribute to the development of RLS. Fortunately, new treatment options, like ketamine infusions, are making it easier to relieve the uncomfortable sensations associated with RLS. Some people also describe the sensation with words like:
  • Crawling
  • Pulling
  • Throbbing
  • Creeping
  • Itching
  • Electric

While it can be difficult to treat, ketamine infusion therapy can help. Continue reading to learn more about restless leg syndrome and ways to treat it.

How Does Ketamine Help RLS?

It is believed that the main cause of RLS is due to overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps the condition by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the desire to restlessly move one’s legs.

Ketamine infusion therapy can offer relief for some patients after just one infusion, whereas other treatment options can take weeks or even months for the user to feel any effects.
