Restless Leg Syndrome

RLS is a neurological disorder that causes an irresistible urge to move your legs. The urge is often accompanied by an uncomfortable sensation in your legs, such as itching, tingling, or burning. These symptoms typically occur in the evening or at night and can interfere with your sleep and quality of life.

Causes

The exact cause of RLS is not known, but it may be related to genetics, iron deficiency, kidney disease, or other underlying medical conditions. Pregnancy and certain medications can also trigger RLS.

Common Issues

RLS can disrupt your sleep and cause daytime fatigue, mood swings, and difficulty concentrating. It may also lead to anxiety and depression, especially if the symptoms are severe.

Treatment Options

At Texas Spine & Pain, we offer a range of treatment options to alleviate RLS symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Medications: Certain medications can help relieve RLS symptoms, such as dopamine agonists, anticonvulsants, and opioids.

Lifestyle changes: Regular exercise, stretching, and massage can help reduce RLS symptoms. Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine can also be helpful.

Surgical Treatment Options

Deep brain stimulation: This procedure involves implanting electrodes in the brain to regulate abnormal activity that causes RLS symptoms.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Recovery from RLS treatment varies depending on the severity of the symptoms and the treatment approach used. Our team of experts will work with you to create a personalized recovery and rehabilitation plan to ensure the best possible outcome.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
