Hi all of you.i have a nervous system disorder called arnold chiari.its actually a bunch full of problems as it effects nerves and brain.well i read that some with this disorder also have rls.how do u experience ur rls.i have pulling and tingeling sensation in my legs.the more relaxed i am the worse it gets.if i tense my leg muscles its almost gone.the feeling in my leg is also like swinging inside...it feels if they have their proper life.i go to an nl on monday,but could it be possible?
Yes, tingling/ pulling sensation could be RLS. Also Arnold-Chiari may be associated with RLS as well. However with the symptoms other possibilities such as neuro-muscular/ vascular issues micronutrient deficiencies, dehydration, infection/ inflammation, electrolyte imbalance, metabolic/ endocrine/ hormonal issues may need to be ruled out. I would suggest considering an evaluation by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause suspected/ diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.
