Take Restless Leg Syndrome Seriously
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a sleep condition that causes uncomfortable sensations in the legs. Sufferers feel an uncontrollable urge to move their legs when sitting or lying down. This condition disrupts sleep, making it impossible to get adequate rest. With proper treatment, however, sufferers can greatly improve their quality of life.
The Symptoms and Causes of Restless Leg Syndrome
People with RLS typically begin to feel creeping, crawling, or other unpleasant sensations in their legs after they’ve been sitting or lying down for an extended amount of time. Because movement brings some relief, sufferers may get up several times a night to stretch or move their legs. This condition can worsen as a person ages. It is also associated with another sleep condition called Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, which causes a person’s limbs to twitch uncontrollably at night.
Luckily, there are things people can do to get help with this disorder, including self-care habits, lifestyle changes, and medications. To determine the exact cause of your or a loved one’s sleep problems and create a treatment plan, it is necessary to perform a complete sleep study.
