Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), medically known as Willis-Ekbom disease, is a neurological condition characterized by uncomfortable sensations in the legs and an irresistible urge to move them. These sensations typically occur during periods of rest or inactivity, such as when sitting or lying down, and often worsen in the evening or at night. The symptoms of RLS can vary in severity from mild to distressing, significantly impacting sleep quality and daily functioning.

The exact cause of RLS remains unclear, but research suggests it may involve abnormalities in the brain’s dopamine system, which plays a crucial role in regulating movement. Genetic factors also appear to contribute, as RLS often runs in families.

Common symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome include:

  1. Uncomfortable sensations: Individuals with RLS often describe sensations in their legs as crawling, creeping, itching, tingling, or burning.

  2. Urge to move: These uncomfortable sensations typically provoke an irresistible urge to move the legs to relieve discomfort, providing temporary relief.

  3. Symptoms at rest: Symptoms tend to occur primarily when the legs are at rest, leading to difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

  4. Worsening symptoms: Symptoms of RLS can worsen with age and may fluctuate in intensity over time, impacting the quality of life for those affected.
