Articles on ReGS/PSAS/ PGAD by Prof. Marcel D. Waldinger
In 2009, Prof. Dr. Waldinger and his colleagues have published five important articles on Restless Genital Syndrome.
Prof. Waldinger has been the first to identify the real cause of ReGS. It is a small fiber sensory neuropathy (SFSN) of the dorsal nerve of the clitoris (DNC), a small nerve in the vicinity of the clitoris and vagina.
