Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)
Symptoms are usually creepy-crawly or achy sensations of the limbs or other body parts that go away temporarily by stretching or movement.
RLS is the most common movement disorder; even though the name of the disorder refers to the legs, symptoms can affect almost any body part, including the head, neck, trunk and arms.
RLS is considered a sleep disorder because symptoms often are worst in the evening and at night, interfering with getting to sleep or staying asleep.
About 10% of Americans are affected by RLS at least occasionally;
About 10 – 20% of RLS sufferers have severe symptoms that interfere with activities of daily living.
