Where Is the Core of the Volcano? The Undetermined Origin of Primary Restless Legs Syndrome – Source: International Journal of Neuroscience, Dec 8, 2010

By Baris Isak, Kadriye Agan, et al. • • December 31, 2010

An association between small fiber neuropathy and primary Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is suggested since both of them share common characteristics. Our aim was to investigate the existence of autonomic neuropathy [damage to nerves involved in automatic body functions] on the basis of autonomic tests.

The patients and the age-matched controls were evaluated with Neuropathy Symptom Profile and Autonomic Symptom Profile, nerve conduction studies (NCS), and autonomic tests.

Patients suffered from neuropathic and autonomic complaints obviously. There was no significant difference for nerve conduction studies (NCS), heart rate variability tests, and sympathetic skin responses (SSRs) among patients and controls.

Since both the nerve conduction studies and the autonomic tests were within normal [range], the complaints were considered to be the consequences of the problem in sensory integration due to the dysfunction of the caudal diencephalic A11 group [sensory transmitters in the brain pertaining to lower part of back/legs], rather than a neuropathic process.

The cardiac autonomic imbalance possibly emerges as a consequence of arousal periods prior to or during the Periodic Leg Movements (PLM) episodes during sleep, but not due to autonomic neuropathy.
