Writhing and Rolling from Restless Legs? Learn About the Sleep Disorder & New Research.

October 29, 2012

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a condition in which your legs feel extremely uncomfortable, usually while you’re sitting or lying down. Essentially, it makes you feel like getting up and moving around. Once you start moving, the unpleasant feeling of restless legs syndrome temporarily goes away.

Restless legs syndrome doesn’t discriminate- it can begin at any age and it generally worsens as you get older. While many suspect the condition may be due to an imbalance of the brain chemical dopamine or iron deficiency, no specific cause for all cases of restless legs syndrome exists. Researchers have found that RLS runs in families in up to half of all cases.

If you happen to suffer from RLS, learn about our new research study below.
