Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

A condition that affects approximately 2 to 15 percent of the American population, restless legs syndrome (RLS) is characterized by unpleasant feelings in the legs that result in a person having an almost irresistible urge to move the legs.
 
Symptoms usually begin or worsen when a person is at rest or otherwise inactive. Many people are able to partially or totally relieve their symptoms simply by moving their legs. Although there is no cure for this condition, treatments are available to help decrease symptoms and increase periods of restful sleep.
