AIM To determine the prevalence of restless legs syndrome (RLS) in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). METHODS Patients with diarrhea-predominant IBS (n = 30), constipation-predominant IBS (n = 30), or mixed-symptom IBS (n = 30) were recruited from the community between March 2008 and February 2009. Rifaximin 200 mg three times daily was administered empirically to alleviate small intestinal bowel overgrowth in all patients. The presence of RLS was assessed via an RLS questionnaire… Expand
Does frequency of restless legs syndrome and poor sleep quality increase with age in irritable bowel syndrome?
TLDR
Previous studies and this study reveal that the frequency of RLS and PSQ increases in IBS, however, this result is a lower rate compared to previous studies. Expand
Association Between Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Restless Legs Syndrome: A Comparative Study With Control Group
TLDR
Surprisingly, a higher prevalence rate of restless legs syndrome was also accompanied with a more severe discomfort and stomach pain in IBS patients, suggesting that screening patients with IBS for RLS may lead to greater identification of RLS and improved treatment for both conditions. Expand
Patients with primary restless legs syndrome have higher prevalence of autonomic dysfunction and irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
The presence of autonomic nervous system impairment in patients with p RLS and the strong link between IBS and pRLS merit further, more extensive investigation. Expand
Severity and frequency of restless legs syndrome in patients with familial Mediterranean fever
TLDR
RLS symptoms in patients with FMF were more frequent and lasted longer than those in controls, and the mean International Restless Legs Syndrome Rating Scale (IRLSRS) scores tended to be higher in patients compared with controls, but this difference was not significant. Expand
Use of antidepressants and risks of restless legs syndrome in patients with irritable bowel syndrome: A population-based cohort study
TLDR
It was shown that the IBS group has higher risk of RLS and that the male SSRIs users were associated with significantly higher riskof RLS, and SSR is use may increase the risk ofRLS in male IBS patients. Expand
Bidirectional association between irritable bowel syndrome and restless legs syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A substantial bidirectional association between IBS and RLS is found and more prospective, high-quality, population-based studies are warranted in the future. Expand
Restless Legs Syndrome (Willis–Ekbom Disease) and Gastrointestinal Diseases
TLDR
In this chapter, all GI diseases and disorders that are associated with RLS are reviewed and potential mechanisms to explain the relationship are discussed. Expand
Correlation of irritable bowel syndrome with psychiatric disorders
TLDR
The relationship between IBS and individual psychiatric disorders with the assessment of their risk and the explanation of molecular causes will be discussed. Expand
Dysfunctional syndromes and fibromyalgia: a 2012 critical digest.
TLDR
This review will discuss the recent literature concerning the most common dysfunctional disorders: fibromyalgia syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome, and irritable bowel syndrome. Expand

TLDR
A fundamental problem with SIBO, and one that allows controversy to simmer, is the lack of a universally accepted and applied gold standard for the diagnosis of SIBO. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that SIBO associated with IBS may be a factor in some RLS patients and SIBO therapy provides long-term RLS improvement. Expand
Fibromyalgia in the irritable bowel syndrome: studies of prevalence and clinical implications
TLDR
Two complementary studies of the prevalence of FS in IBS patients and matched controls and of IBS in FS patients and the implications of concomitant IBS and FS on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) found patients with both disorders have worse scores on HRQOL indices. Expand
Celiac Disease Is Associated with Restless Legs Syndrome
TLDR
Screening for celiac disease in patients with RLS is important since this commonly overlooked silent disease may be a correctable factor for some patients with idiopathic RLS. Expand

TLDR
An ‘identify, eliminate, probe’ algorithm is presented that may be appropriate to establish a positive diagnosis of patients with IBS‐C, as symptoms characteristic of patients in this IBS subgroup are least likely to be confused with symptoms reflecting serious organic disease. Expand
Crohn's disease is associated with restless legs syndrome
TLDR
It is demonstrated that RLS occurs frequently in Crohn's disease and appears to be a possible extraintestinal manifestation. Expand
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
A systematic overview of recently approved or novel medications that show promise for the treatment of IBS is provided; classification is based on the physiological systems targeted by the medication. Expand
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth in Patients with Interstitial Cystitis and Gastrointestinal Symptoms
TLDR
Rifaximin improved symptoms, which was sustained by tegaserod, and a majority of IC patients and GI symptoms had an abnormal LBT suggesting SIBO. Expand
Results of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth testing in irritable bowel syndrome patients: clinical profiles and effects of antibiotic trial.
TLDR
SIBO was present in nearly half of this large cohort of IBS patients and chronic PPI use was not associated with SIBO, and Methane formers on the GBT are more likely to be constipated; Rifaximin is effective in treatment of SIBO in IBS and controlled trials are warranted. Expand
Restless Legs Syndrome
TLDR
Treatment of RLS is usually rewarding, most patients respond robustly to dopamine receptor agonists, but over time, response may lessen, or the patients may develop ‘augmentation’, whereby they have a worsening of symptoms, usually in the form of an earlier onset. Expand
Irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
Treatment of IBS involves an integrated pharmacological and behavioral approach that is determined by the severity of the illness and its physiological and psychosocial determinants. Expand
