RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME (RLS)
Restless Legs Syndrome is characterized by an irresistible urge to move one’s body to stop odd uncomfortable sensations. It can affect the legs, arms, torso and head. Moving the affected body part provides temporary relief. Walking, stretching or yoga may relieve the symptoms. The sensations and the need to move may return immediately after stopping movement or at a later time.
Restless Leg Syndrome sensations are:
- Pins and needles
- Trying to sleep
Some people experience minor annoyance while others experience significant impairments in quality of life.
