Welcome to the Restless Legs Syndrome Channel
Restless legs syndrome is a disorder in which unpleasant feelings in the legs -- which usually begin or worsen during periods of rest or inactivity, and can disturb sleep -- cause an almost irresistible urge to move the legs. Some people with restless legs syndrome do not seek treatment because they think they won't be taken seriously, their symptoms are too mild, or they believe their restless legs syndrome can't be treated. But there is treatment available that can improve and relieve symptoms of restless legs syndrome.
Welcome to the Restless Legs Syndrome Health Channel by eMedTV. On this channel, you will find articles presenting a wide range of information about restless legs syndrome. Whether you have a child with possible symptoms of restless legs syndrome or a bed partner who can't stop kicking during sleep -- or would like information about how to receive diagnosis and treatment for restless legs syndrome symptoms that you may be experiencing -- we have the information you are looking for. This channel provides information on restless legs syndrome types, causes, and risk factors -- as well as research that is currently being done on how to better detect, treat, and prevent the disorder.
