There may be a connection with rls & varicose veins. My mom has both. She has suffered for years with sore legs & rls. She now takes clonazepam anti-anxiety tablets before bedtime and that took away rls. She still have sore legs from the varicose veins though. She wears support pantyhose to bed with the toes cut out to help her have less painful legs. During the day, she also wear regular support hose for relief.
