Restless Legs Syndrome

"Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is painful and disturbing. It can interrupt our sleep, and disturb others as we try our hardest to get our legs comfortable."

Restless legs syndrome is a sensori-motor (movement) disorder characterized by uncomfortable sensations in the legs, which are worse during periods of inactivity or rest or while sitting or lying down...Individuals affected with the disorder describe the sensations as pulling, drawing, crawling, wormy, boring, tingling, pins and needles, prickly, and sometimes painful sensations that are usually accompanied by an overwhelming urge to move the legs. Sudden muscle jerks may also occur. Movement provides temporary relief from the discomfort...Symptoms may interfere with sleep onset...
