If your feet aren’t happy, you won’t sleep well. Here are the potential foot issues that could be keeping you awake.
You have restless leg syndrome
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) causes a throbbing sensation in your feet and legs that triggers a desperate urge to move them, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The National Institutes of Health estimates that nearly 10 percent of the U.S. population has RLS. Ask your doctor about lifestyle changes—including decreasing coffee or increasing iron—that can help minimize symptoms. If your case is very severe, your doctor may also recommend a number of medications. Try these home remedies for restless leg syndrome first.
