Atlanta Sleep Medicine Clinic Views Representative Henry Waxman's Denial of Restless Leg Syndrome as a Sign of General Lack of Awareness of the Sleep Disorder
Date:7/27/2009

Patients and physicians familiar with the symptoms of and treatments for Restless Leg Syndrome respond to Rep. Henry Waxman's denial of the sleep disorder. Waxman's statements also bring to light the overall lack of awareness about the disease among Americans.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 27, 2009 -- At the beginning of this month, California Rep. Henry Waxman was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after treatment from fainting in his office. While on C-SPAN, Waxman was recorded saying that Restless Legs Syndrome is a disease created by pharmaceutical companies to make more money. In a video of this interview that has circulated on YouTube and news sites throughout July, Waxman described his experience arriving at the hospital after fainting:

"Somebody asked me, 'Why is your knee jerking?' And I thought I was making a joke, and I said, 'Well I have Restless Leg Syndrome.' Now, I don't think there is such a thing as restless leg syndrome. I'll probably hear from all those people who have it. But I thought that Restless Leg Syndrome was a disease that was created by a drug company that wanted to sell a drug for the disease they had created. And I was making a joke. Well, when I got out of the hospital, I looked at my record, it said, 'He claims to have Restless Leg Syndrome.' Well, I don't know if there is such a thing or not. I don't have it. But a lot of people start thinking they have medical problems because they've seen too many of these commercials. I don't think that's doing the public a lot of good. It's certainly making the drug companies richer, but it's not doing a lot
