Abstract
Background: The patients with restless legs syndrome
(RLS) had a lower quality of life (QOL) than normal
controls. However, it is debatable which affects their QOL
more, disturbing pain or poor sleep quality. We studied the
QOL of patients with RLS and compared it to patients with
osteo-arthritis (OA) who were having similar leg discomfort.
Methods: In total, the scores of the 153 RLS patients were
compared with the scores of 153 OA patients. All subjects
completed the questionnaires, including the Korean versions
of the PSQI and SF-36, the Short-form McGill Pain
Questionnaire and VAS for their pain quantification. We
analyzed the related factors in the QOL of RLS patients
through Pearson Correlations.
