Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The recent manuscript by Xinglong Yang and colleagues provided the first relatively reliable estimate of restless leg syndrome (RLS) prevalence among migraine sufferers, which was estimated at 19% (95% CI 14–24%). The implications of the association between the two conditions are wide, and call for further action aimed to address common disease mechanism-associated conditions such as sleep-related ones and associated burden.
