Information on Restless Legs Syndrome
Also called restless legs or RLS, restless legs syndrome is a condition involving unpleasant feelings or sensations in the legs. People often describe these feelings as creeping, crawling, tingling, pulling, or painful.
Symptoms typically begin or worsen during periods of rest or inactivity, and are either partially or totally relieved by movement. Certain medications, such as nausea drugs or some cold and allergy medicines, may make symptoms worse. In addition, RLS symptoms can cause you to get less sleep, which can lead to problems with concentration, remembering new things, and work.
